The Somewhat Dressed Up Down Vest

[Vest] Aquascutum [Sweater] Scotch & Soda [Shirt] Dsquared2 [Jeans] LTB
 [Shoes] Zara [Bag] Dappertime 

I’ve been wearing a lot less tailoring lately. Mainly because these last few weeks have been so hectic that wearing a suit just wasn’t practical. With that being said, I still feel more comfortable in a tie. I’ve become so used to wearing a tie that if it’s missing I almost feel naked. I’ve been trying my best to incorpate a tie into looks that are far from formal and to be honest it’s a lot of fun. Like this look for example. Nothing about a down vest and jeans would make you think tie but with a button down and v-neck sweater the whole look kind of works (at least I think so). With spring here, days are sometimes too warm for a jacket so a down vest could be the perfect piece to wear. Next time you pull yours out try to be a little creative and pair it with a tie or even over a blazer for an even less casual approach. Thanks for reading!
