The vest is making a strong showing this fall as it fits nicely within the menswear-inspired fashion trend.

 Hinkley Pinstripe Vest, $22  Velvet Vest, $17.80

I like the vest trend, its very polished looking- today I went to forever 21 and tried on the sequin vest by twelve by twelve- I loved it, however, I must add that it is not for those with boobage- the way the vest is cut goes right around the boobs and makes them really pop (drawing a circle around your boobs is the way my poetic boyfriend put it)- so unless you're a backup dancer for janet jackson you might have a hard time finding somewhere to wear it thats appropriate
