Pick of the Month — Autumn/Winter Waistcoat

If, like me, you're a little bit tired of the blazers that are (already) everywhere this season, then I suggest you try mixing things up a bit with a waistcoat instead!

Perfect for sunny autumn days — when a jacket would be too much, but a shirt on its own too little — a waistcoat can add a little bit of intrigue to an otherwise mundane outfit. Wear it with a tailored shirt and trousers for an androgynous look, with a wool skirt to bring out your inner librarian, or with a pair of jeans to make them more suitable for the office.

Me? I like to pretend I'm wearing a tuxedo when I don a waistcoat, so I'd grab a white bow embellished shirt, black skinny jeans, and some black and white oxford shoes to top off my look:
