|vest: AE outfitters, sweater: AE outfitters, jeggings: NY&CO, shoes: Nine West|
Well, as you see, it's onto part deux of blog posts featuring my sister! Doesn't she look all collegiate with that crest on her vest? She is currently attending American Eagle Outfitters University (kidding!). So it isn't an actual college crest, but there are plenty o' good things to say about this ensemble. First of all, this vest features a faint pinstripe. Vertical details such as the pinstripe have an elongating effect because it runs length-wise on the body. Worn on a vest or blazer, it can add desired length to the torso. Pinstripes found on a pencil skirt or trousers have a visually lengthening effect on the legs. I believe 1920 mobsters were onto something. Second, use layers to have a slimming effect without adding on bulk. In this outfit, my sister paired a 3/4 length sleeve, light-weight sweater with a tailored vest, which achieves a layered look without looking weighed down. Also, layering items with different necklines has a slimming effect. A scoop neck sweater paired with an opened, tailored vest is one of many different pairings that can be used to accomplish a slimming effect while layering. Lastly, wear a uniform dark rinse sans whiskering or fading to slim the bottom half.
