Blue Inc Longline Waistcoat

Blue Inc Longline Waistcoat – Summer in the UK isn’t really your typical summer, the weather changes constantly so you have to make sure you’re prepared for what the day might bring and this is where waistcoats come in handy!

They’re perfect for keeping your body warm (like a lightweight body warmer) yet the fact that they’re sleeveless will also help you to stay cool if it gets warmer…

Remember a few years ago when fitted waistcoats were all the rage?

Celebrities wore them, business women wore them and fashion magazines loved them too – even I loved them but I’m glad to say that since then things have evolved and we now have a variety of waistcoats available including long length, oversized and fitted.

A few days ago I had to attend a few meetings and as you all know, I love keeping my outfits casual and comfortable but for this wanted to add an elegant feel to it too!

I teamed this Blue Inc Longline Waistcoat with an all white outfit – this contrasts against the black yet still compliments the white chequered design you can see on the picture above and pictures below…

Even though this waistcoat is oversized and longer than normal, it’s still fitted so it flatters your shape!

By adding a pair of high heels like the ones I’m wearing gives this a sexier, elegant feel making it a perfect look for meetings (hello power woman) or even for a lunch-date!

It’s not at all over the top and this is what I tend to do with my outfits – I prefer keeping things simple and sharing outfits that everyone can wear no matter the occasion! 🙂

    Yeah, I remember the trend of fitted waistcoats and till then I’ve bought 3 sleeveless blazer vests with a similar design. This style suits you so much, Layla! You can totally mess with some of IT streetstyle ladies out there. Perfect look powered by Blue Inc! Happy Monday, gorgeous!
