Vests have fallen in and out of popularity throughout the years and I have always been able to resist their lure. They always seem fussy and overwrought as well as difficult to wear. However, J Crew has changed my mind about vests with their silk faille Jacinta vest. It is less menswear inspired, taking it’s inspiration from a victorian corset. I love how it lends simple elegance and feminine shape to a fitted cashmere cardigan and gray cords. Putting a chic outfit together doesn’t get any easier than this. Available at www.jcrew.com.
