We love a vest. Whether it's a structured waistcoat or a cosy oversized knit, they never fail to complete any outfit — and keep us toasty. But with their versatility can also come confusion.
You might think that something thick yet sleeveless could only be called upon for some very specific, very strange weather, but there are ways to make sure you're getting the most out of your purchase.

After all, being able to get creative with outfits means the pieces in our wardrobes get maximum wear, ensuring we're not contributing to overconsumption. But sometimes we get stumped. And when the outfit block comes around, the only course of action to take is to look at our social feeds for the right inspiration to reignite the spark.
Here to save vests across the world from a bleak future at the back of the closet are thirteen outfits featuring every kind of vest that will (hopefully) inspire some creative styling of your own.
