Wear It Now: The Longline Waistcoat

June 1, 2015

One of my current obsessions at the moment is the longline vest.

Also called a sleeveless waistcoat or sleeveless trench, the only thing you need to know, is that you need it in your life!

It’s such an essential piece – great for layering or transitioning into different seasons, and it can be worn in so, so many different ways!

It can add structure and form to any look and perfect for layering without the bulk!

  5. Orange Longline Waistcoat – ZARA
  6. Light Khaki Long Waistcoat – ZARA

Whenever I’m looking for inspiration, I always look toward my favourite style bloggers, and here are three looks that I’m obsessed with!



Obsessed with how Wendy from Wendy’s Lookbook styled her grey longline vest..

Wendy’s paired her gorgeous longline grey vest over a leather jacket and finished it off so beautifully with black jeans, killer heels and a beautiful bag.

Check out the full look on her blog.


Loving how Arabella from ArabellaGolby styled her beige River Island Sleeveless Trench.

This is such a great autumn look and I love everything about it!

I’ve got my eye on River Island all the time waiting, hoping, praying that I get my hands on this piece before it comes and goes.

Check out her full look here.


I’ve recently started stalking following Kristin from Living In Color Print and I am obsessed with her style!

Especially this look she posted in April.

How amazing is that tailored vest, and how perfectly polished does it make her look?

I’ve been on the hunt for a tailored black longline vest just like this one, so if you see one, don’t forget to let me know

Check out her full look here.

Hope I’ve inspired you gals this Monday!

    Yes! I am lusting over these as well. Been thinking about cutting up an old coat and making me one haha! Love Wendy’s look and perfect for this icy winter to layer up.

    • LOL not a bad idea! I must be honest, finding them locally has not been easy. Although I bought a beautiful cream one from ZARA the other day – they just fly out of that shop so quickly, I was just glad I got my paws on it before it was too late

        aaaw, you got one. Lucky you. Looking forward to seeing how you style it 😉

  • I go to the UK tomorrow, hopefully I can bag one from H&M on their 50% sale 😉
