Waistcoats Are Officially Happening, & Chloé Resort '14 Is Proof

From heritage brands like Steven Alan and designer crème de la crème like Chloé to mass retailers like Zara, stores and designers of all price points clearly can't get enough of the fancy-waistcoat trend. The sleeveless toppers are cropping up just about everywhere, and that means it's only a matter of time until you purchase one yourself. Well, if you haven't already.
Of course, everyone might not be able to swing the $2,450 price tag for the Chloé resort '14 iteration, but it's still a great source of inspiration for when you build your daily wardrobe. After all, whether it's styled for the office or a quick errand, this piece is super easy to incorporate into your ensemble. A plain, white tee and high-water pants are the foundation of the outfit — they're also wardrobe staples that'll see plenty of use beyond this look. Accessorize with a colorblocked satchel, a block-heeled pump, and, of course, that essential cream vest, and you've got an ensemble that's the epitome of French-girl chic (a.k.a the art of not trying too hard). We think it's positively parfait.
