One thing that keeps me interested in dressing up is the idea of taking items of clothing that have fallen out of favor and finding new ways to make them work. I love a good vest– it’s an easy way to add some structure to an outfit, and a low-commitment addition that keeps you a little warmer. I guess I’ll always have a soft spot for waistcoats: they were a thing back when I had started blogging, and I wore them with American Apparel t-shirts and skinny jeans and bowler hats, and when the trend went sour, I was left with a sizeable number of vests in my closet, all without suits to match. This linen halter waistcoat by Damir Doma is a remarkable piece because of the unusual cut and detailing. I like to wear it over thin sweaters, almost like a puffy vest but for milder weather.
