Summer Essentials: The Vest
Dare to bare with this easy, breezy, summer essential from just €2.50
Sitting at the centre of the casual dressing spectrum, the vest is perfect for the summer season and events such as BBQs, beach days and festivals. Ideal for when temperatures peak, helping you keep covered yet remain comfortably cool.
Double duty dressing is still applicable in the summer as those chilly nights and milder mornings can still catch you by surprise! Both situations call for light layering and the vest is the perfect solution, worn as a hero item or as a companion to others.
One way to wear it would be underneath a garment, such as a short-sleeved casual shirt. A good suggestion would be to wear your shirt open displaying the vest, paired with chino shorts and some boat shoes, which allows for a smarter approach. This look is suited for a number of occasions and situations, for example when it gets too hot, let the vest sit centre stage by removing the shirt. Additionally when the sun sets and evening chill sets in you can instantly sharpen the look by buttoning up.
If you wish to opt for the laid back approach, then an ideal way to wear the vest is by pairing with swim shorts and accessorising with sun ready pieces such as shades and a baseball cap. To complete the look you can opt for beach appropriate footwear such as sandals or flip-flops. When thinking about layering you could pair the vest with a light flannel shirt or a denim jacket, on cooler days allowing for comfort and ease from the morning to the evening.
