DALLAS, Aug 7, 2009 / FW/ — A modification of a cardigan layer is the vest. It is a tailored look that can turn you into a rocker or a prepster. It looks best worn over a casual tee or a button up blouse.

Avoid tucking in your shirt because of the homely connotation it portrays, unless the bottom layer is fitted and the vest is the focal point, as seen in Rebecca Taylor.

Walter exquisitely pairs a cropped vest over a sequined dress. Nicholas K deters from the tailored look of this trend by extending the length and increasing the movement. Michael Kors uses this to add elegance to a suit.

There are so many approaches in proclaiming this trend; decide which slant you will take to fit it into your personal style.
