How To Style Waistcoats

Waistcoats are having a revival thanks to Victoria Beckham, Chloé and Stella McCartney, lending a smart and flattering finish to their collections, but many of us haven’t a clue how to style them. Here’s how to make them work for you.


Revolutionise formal evening wear by wearing a black waistcoat with a silk midi skirt and white tee. Complete the look with black strappy heels, an oversized coat and statement sparkly earrings; perfect for a balance of feminine and androgynous.


Opt for a beige double-breasted waistcoat over a cream cashmere sweater to update any winter look. We’re loving this with a statement pair of leather paperbag waisted trousers and some snakeskin ankle boots.


For summer afternoons, use a grey waistcoat to elevate a blush blouse and blue loose-fitted jeans. Finish the edit with leather mules and oversized sunglasses.
