You’ve seen them on everyone from Olivia Palermo to Shay Mitchell, and you’ve thought about taking the plunge. So here’s why you should run, not walk, to buy your sleeveless blazer immediately.
1) The Coverage Factor: As we head into summer, we pretty much want to live in a tank and cutoffs. But when you need a bit more coverage and it’s far too hot for sleeves, cue epic vest game.
2) For Formality’s Sake: The super tailored versions easily dress up an outfit in one step. Think presentations, job interviews, or dare we say jury duty.
3) For Variety: Sometimes you run into writer’s block, but of the outfit variety. When you feel like you’ve over-worn every item in your closet, popping a blazer vest on top breathes new life into your fashion vernacular.
4) For The Cool Points: Because if fashion’s leading ladies wear them, you should too.
