Trend : Vests

Vests are in this season!
If you work in an environment that requires formal workwear, but you hate wearing suits, vests are a great way to look appropriate without getting a heatstroke in our climate.
Depending on the fabric and cut of the vest, you can pair them with anything from shorts to pants to dresses.

Marc by Marc Jacobs , Nanette Lepore

Try a fitting, structured vest in a dark colour like these for work. Wear them with shirts or blouses.

Jak & Rae , Theory , Delias

For a casual look, pair a vest with a tank top or a tee over skirts, jeans or shorts.

Elie Tahari

Find your dress too plain on it's own? Wear a vest over it.

Beat The Heat

How does one stay cool in the heat? Take a cue from these celebs in their tunic dresses.
If you're worried about showing too much leg, add on a pair of leggings/tights, like this :

These striped tights may be a bit radical for some, so plain ones will do just fine.

Here's a few more I found :

Dress - AKA ; Sandals - Kristen Lee ; Shades - DITA

Dress - Lewis Cho ; Sandals - Next

Because you have to walk around your hotel suite in style.

Runway Highlight : Blumarine

These are from the Autumn/Winter runway show in Milan. I love how they injected colours into their collection instead of focusing on the usual blacks, browns and greys so typical of A/W !
