Waistcoat Love

I've wanted a waistcoat for ages. I love how they look and how they seem to spice up any outfit. Waistcoats do go with everything, from a nice blouse to a cute dress.
I got one from French Connection recently and wore it 3 times in the first week. I don't think I've done that with any other clothes in the past.

I wore that first outfit to my cousins birthday. It was a lunch time thing, so it was a nice casual look. The second outfit is what I wore to a makeover. Long story short, it was basically you had your hair and make up done, then you change clothes and have a few photos taken. I don't think I've ever worn so much make up though.
The final outfit I wore for an interview for an internship (which I got, yay).
I also managed to wear it to a gig and am wearing it to a press event.


There are so many different types of waistcoats, from casual to smart, that you really can wear them for lots of different occassions. I think you'd be ok to wear them to work, on a night out, or even just adding a bit of style to a plain tank.

Also, the fact that I'm wearing my one waistcoat to so many different events shows just how versatile it is.

Love the outfits, especially with the jeans and tee. I have a sequinned waistcoat that I wear with EVERYTHING. I love them, and they never go out of fashion.

Ooh, I so need a waistcoat, that looks so fantastic on you and it looks great with a casual outfit and a smart one.

I never figured out how to rock my wasit coat.

However, I may just chalk it up to buying it in a size too small...bad idea!

I had a waistcoat but returned it after failing to pair it properly with anything. I felt like it just didn't work for me - though it looks fabulous on you. Loving the way Sienna wears hers - I think that Blake Lively is amazing inspiration for waistcoat styling! :)
