Dear fashionsta, you will know that I wore a white shirt under a pinafore last week.
In order to celebrate Jodie's series on the white shirt 'an under' (under a sleeveless layer) I've explored another couple of looks for work. I'm always looking for work wear inspiration utilising my existing wardrobe, you may have noticed.
Unlike Jodie I had to make my looks business appropriate. Coincidentally I have a couple of long vest or waistcoats or sleeveless dusters (whatever you want to call them. ) I buy them then they sit in the wardrobe. This then was a perfect opportunity to dabble with these 'unworns.'
First this forest vest. I wore it with a black skirt and added a gold necklace and a forest scarf (not shown). The office has a large temperature range during the day.
Next up was a navy vest which I wore with a navy skirt.
I added a navy chocker made in West Africa from a traditional material printing technique. I bought this in Tenerife last summer.
Both looks were finished with black tights and black ankle boots just because that's my winter work leg uniform.
In trying these vests I discovered the joy of arms not so cosseted in the spring. I had previously thought a vest a fairly useless item as it only keeps part of 'one' (posh aren't I ) warm. At this time of year, under a coat that is a good thing.
