Waistcoats are always sleeveless, but otherwise infinitely multifaceted. They are available in different styles, colours, lengths and materials – quilted or made of leather, with hood or lapel collar. Waistcoats are the perfect layering partner for the trendy, multi-layered look. With this trend, even large sizes can sometimes have the right thickness.
Waist-length down and quilted waistcoats show their sporty side over long shirts with jeans and booties for the outdoors. Waistcoats in a lambskin look, worn over a floral tunic or a jumper in a crochet style, conjure up a relaxed Bohemian flair. While blazer-style leather waistcoats with a blouse-style shirt and midi-dress rock business outfits.
So that the waistcoat styling is not too voluminous, a fine eye is required for the creative layer work. As a general rule: short over long, wide to narrow, transparent to opaque. Ideal under waistcoats are delicate long blouses and long fine knit jumpers in A-line form. And which length of waistcoat is the right one for me? Short styles lengthen the silhouette, longer shapes skirt the hips.
