The Vest: A Blazer, Only Cooler

Now that Fall Fashion Month has come to an end, it's time to get back to reality and realize that those days are far into the future (7 months away). Spring is slowly approaching like it's slugging behind a turtle, but alas, in a few months, it will arrive. Essentially, this means that this is the time to shop and replenish that spring wardrobe. With the scent of daffodils and rustling grass whispering their song, let's contemplate one of the loveliest spring trends: the Vest.

If you weren't aware, fashion loves to transgress and manipulate boundaries of femininity. Androgyny is always trending inspiring powerful ladies everywhere to explore how this tastes. Once upon a time, men wore vests under their tuxedos. Today, women are combining vests with maxi skirts and skinny pants. It's the blazer's hotter older brother and we want in. Who needs sleeves anyway when we've got muscular arms from lifting 2 pounders at the gym?

Here are the various ways this trend was exhibited during Spring Fashion Week:

Jason Wu Spring 2014
