Have you have started shopping for your summer wardrobe yet? If you have then you will have realised that there is one item that there is simply no avoiding this year in menswear – The vest. Continuing on from last summer when the vest was big news, again they strongly feature in the mainstream summer collections for men.
Vests are worn the year round as an under layer just like a t-shirt but for Summer they can form the integral part of your outfit. For this very reason it is important to select the right fit and style for you. There are baggy, tight, printed, pocketed, plain, neon, racer style and more to select from but we have put together a quick selection of our favourites from the high street for you to browse.
American Apparel have really outdone themselves for summer with a huge range of graphic and printed vests as well as the enormous range of colours in their more basic styles. Topman and River Island have gone for bold prints, bright colours and patterned designs. If it’s a lots of choice that you want then there really only is one place visit. Asos with a whopping 282 styles to choose from at the last count must have something for everyday men from all walks of life!
The vest is never going to be an item loved by all, the more body conscious out there will shy away but it does not have to be the way. You can team it with a loose-fitting shirt or wear with a patterned pair of shorts/trousers to take the emphasis away from your top half. Besides you still have plenty of time til summer to get working on the guns!
What do you reckon? Will you be wearing a vest this summer?
