I ordered this Patrick Robinson Linen vest from target go international collection. The vest trend has been making a comeback since last fall and it still carries over to this year. I like the idea of wearing a vast to spice up an outfit, you can just throw one over a white tee for a more tailoring look. Wearing a feminine blouse underneath helps to balance the masculine look of a vest, or you can wear boat neck top to show some skin on your shoulder. Some people layered it over a tank top and that works too. Too bad I haven’t found the one that I really like, most of them are too masculine for my taste.
Anyway, this Patrick Robinson vest has a feminine charm since it’s cropped and can be tied in front and has that gathered detail at the neckline. The linen material gives a slouchy and less formal look. Unfortunately I ordered a size too big, I hope they still have my size in the store so I can exchange it.
So, what do you think? Do you like vest? If you do, make sure you don’t wear a black one over a button down shirt when you go to the Chinese all you can eat buffet. You don’t want people asking you to refill their drinks since they think you are one of the waitresses…:D
