Long Vest 3 (Office)

Quote of the day: “Remember a dead fish can float downstream but it takes a live one to swim upstream.” WC Fields

In this third section for our long vests, I styled us for a day at the office. For some reason, many longer vests seem professional and office worthy. I realize that not everyone could wear a fur vest to their job, but there are many creative workplaces, where it could be acceptable. The other posts showcasing styling these exact same vests for a casual look (here) and for a dressy look (here).

60’s Long Vest: I tried to make this outfit more conservative by styling the vest with grey trousers and heels. It still may not be your first choice for the office, but it could be fun!

70’s Long Vest: These aren’t the pants that came with the vest, but I did give in and let mom go with the same color. I figured the scarf adds the interest.

Since we’re talking about the office, here’s some blazer like vests to peruse (and I think they are a great way to add some flair to your jeans!):

  • I can’t get enough of my long vest – this is truly a piece perfect for all ages


    • Jodie Filogomo

      I certainly am loving them more and more lately!! thanks Michelle!

  • This time around my favorite goes to the 60s faux fur vest. I love that! I can’t seem to get enough faux fur these days!

    Thanks for linking up to the Kremb de la Kremb Style Stories Link Up.

    Love, Ann

    • Jodie Filogomo

      i know how you feel….the faux fur’s are so fun!! I’ve been vacillating whether to get more!

  • Cathy Lawdanski

    Great looks. I’ve been shopping for a long vest. Loved the way you styled with scarves and other accessories!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Cathy!!

  • I like layering & I like tunics, but long vests don’t do a thing for me these days. Love the fur though.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Funny, because I wasn’t sure I loved the longer versions at first either, Carol. I think they reminded me too much of the 80’s. But I have to admit, they’ve grown on me….maybe just because they’re different (and they cover my rear)!!! Thanks for reading!!

  • These are all so fab – I love the faux fur! thanks for linking, xo


  • This is a great idea Jodie! I never would have thought to wear vests to the office.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Humaira—to me they are a more lightweight blazer/jacket!!

  • Versatilestylebytracey

    Love all three looks but Jodie, those brights are awesome!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I do love color Tracey…sometimes I have to remind myself to tone it down!!

      • Versatilestylebytracey

        Yet another thing we have in common, lol!

  • I love how colorful your outfit is! Yes, I would wear a faux fur vest to the office. Hmm…your mom sounds like she was pulling the diva card on you. 😉 I must admit, her outfit is spot on.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Darlene….the diva card—I’m totally going to use that next time mom is not behaving!!!
