This creates a revamped style that combines the past and present. If you like this look, a lace vest is perfect. Go for one such as that shown in the image, which has the hipster style down to a T.

You could wear a pair of high-waisted shorts or mom jeans with a vest tucked in, and wear this waistcoat on top.

One of this season's trends, which is growing more and more in popularity, is the oversize look, i.e. wearing clothing that is bigger than normal. Well, you can find a lace waistcoat in this style too. In fact, they are far more on point and fashionable than the regular versions. So, if you want to be a fashionista, this garment simply must feature in your wardrobe.

To carry off this oversize waistcoat, wear some skinny jeans, a basic vest, and wear this long waistcoat so that it drapes on top. Avoid wearing clothes that have pictures or words as this will break up the continuity of your look. You can add extra accessories afterwards if you like: hats, belts, necklaces, bracelets, and so on.

The rock-chick style is still going strong as it perfectly encapsulates that sexy, bold look, bursting with personality. So, if you are passionate about this look, you can use your waistcoat to add to your unique and modern look.

The best thing to do is to go for an all-black outfit and add a lace waistcoat. Opt for one in a colour that other than black to make it stand out more. If you want to up the sexiness, why not wear a crop-top underneath and show a little bit of skin.

You can also complement your look with some biker boots or, if you dare, with some knee-high boots. These will give you some serious sex appeal. You can add accessories of your choosing afterwards. Generally, we recommend wearing leather or silver accessories to complement your look better.

If what you want is to add a cowboy touch to your look, and rock the purest cowgirl style, a lace waistcoat is absolutely perfect for you! That may be, but this look is also super bold and will make you look incredibly sexy and feminine.

The best way to get this look is to wear some shorts, some high boots or even some knee-high boots. To finish off the look perfectly, teem it with the lace waistcoat, without wearing a shirt or t-shirt underneath. Yes, yes: just the waistcoat.

If this look is a bit bold for you, you could wear a crop-top or a plain strappy vest or crop-top underneath. The boots will also give the look that cowboy feel, as will the bag (better yet if it is a fringed bag) and the jeans. People will fall head over heels for your style!
