Styling with a vest

Leave the jacket at home and wear a vest with a well-fitting shirt. For an even more relaxed look, try a casual button down like an oxford or a linen shirt.

If you need a tie, reach for something a little laid back, like a knit or cotton tie, rather than a more formal silk tie. Feel free to keep your shirt collar unbuttoned with a loose tie knot.

As for the vest itself, make sure it fits well and tight, with the length long enough that the sides reach to your belt line. Always remember to leave the last vest button unbuttoned.

So, give your vest and shirts a chance to shine. It’s a great way to add some versatility to your outfit.
