If you think your outfits are too plain, wear the same blazer all of the time, or are just a shopaholic and need something to give you a fix, invest in a vest.  A vest is cool, flatters hourglass figures, and will probably be one of the most versatile items in your closet.

Key investments:

Calm, cool, and collected

I’m all about the rebirth of the sweater vest.  It’s good with slacks and a button-down or jeans and a v-neck T-shirt. You’ll get a lot of mileage out of this piece.

Seriously speaking

This vest offers a dressier option while still being fresh and young.  Slip on a pencil skirt and your favorite pumps to get the most out of the look.

Bling, bling

This vest can take you from the office to a happy hour, a date, or the club.  Wear with a black top and slacks in the office for a fab 9-to-5 look or with a white T-shirt and ripped jeans on the weekend for a glam rock look.
