The Vest Top

DSC_9633_fotor

Vest Tops: It’s no secret that I love my vest tops and I’ll put my hands up and admit – I have too many!!

Plain ones to layer under cosy sweaters, patterns, tie-back vests and casual/sporty ones like the one you see pictured above!

I think that vest tops are an ‘essential’ for everyone’s wardrobe – they’re so versatile and can be worn with jeans, shorts, t-shirts worn off the shoulder, under sweaters – the list really is endless!

These photos were taken a few weeks back when we had glorious weather in the UK and I kept the whole look rather casual – teaming it with my skinny black jeans, flat shoes and layering a necklace over it…..in the evening I added my black blazer to the mix as it got cold – we don’t have enough warm weather in the UK 🙁

One thing that I quite like is wearing a colourful bra under my vest top – you can just see a pop of colour on the waist and it’s colour co-ordinated too haha!

Vest tops on the high street have quite a dip at the waist this year – this is so you can wear a colourful bra, a lace bandeaux or bikini top for that summer fun feel!

    Oooh, Layla’s showing some skin and color! I really like vest tops (are they also called muscle tanks?) and own a few but wearing them casually in my small town isn’t that an appealing (or even a smart) idea, hahaha! To the beach, maybe! Super cute outfit and your smile makes me smile =D xo

    Like you, I could live and live and live in my black skinny jeans 🙂 You look so lovely in these photos and I love how you’ve layered the vest! Your summery holiday snaps on your Instagram have been so much fun to see by the way! 🙂

    Simple and pretty, Layla. There’s no shame in owing too much vest tops. If it works for you, hey why not! I owe so much striped ensemble, its ridiculous. Ha! 🙂
