The vest is worn as a ‘top’: this is confirmed by style prescribers

If one thing is clear, it is that the world of fashion is cyclical. Garments that we thought would not reappear in our closets are once again gaining prominence years after becoming a trend. Fashions come, they go and, of course, they come back.

The vests, for example, became popular again among consumers a few years ago, after having spent many years in the shadows. They were presented as the essential autumn/winter garment, the one that we couldn’t miss, the one that would accompany us and be our ally during the cold seasons.

However, originality is also characteristic of the world of fashion. Every garment that becomes a trend again is reinvented. The vest does not escape this rule. Therefore, what we used last year as a layer against the cold, today we use it as top.

Yes like top. More and more firms include tops in vest format among its proposals. From the big fashion houses to the boutiques fast fashion, all have begun to market light and short vests, in format top.

Zara and Mango, for example, have a multitude of options available in their catalog for this season. Vest and suit pants sets or vests with details embedded in velvet fabric are the most successful.
