Vests are so clever! They contain all the sophistication of a blazer, while making - in some cases - an even bigger style statement. Take the catalog inspiration, for example. Pairing a long vest over a classic bow blouse is the perfect outfit for a casual Friday at the office, or any other time you'd like to feel a bit polished. It's an easy look I'd definitely try for a work meeting!
