Kendall Jenner may not have started the trend she just wore out in L.A., but she's certainly wearing it well. The trend in question is wearing a tailored vest as a shirt. In the fall and winter, vests were more of a layering piece, but now that it's almost summer, fashion girls are transitioning to wearing them as standalone pieces.
Jenner wore her vest with loose trousers, trendy padded sandals, and a colorful tote bag, proving how polished the vest-as-a-top trend makes everything you're wearing look. I'd also recommend wearing it with loose-fit jeans, pleated shorts, or a silky slip skirt, and it looks great under a blazer or oversize denim jacket if the weather calls for an extra layer.
Scroll on for my favorite tailored vests on the market. You'll thank me when you find yourself reaching for them again and again and when the compliments come rolling in.
