A summer staple- the denim waistcoat...

Something I've been seeing everywhere is the denim waistcoat, with many variations be it patterned, cropped or in a variety of colours. Instead of buying a new one however I cut the sleeves off two denim jackets I was bored of and it worked out perfectly. Crazily enough, I have gotten so much more wear out of these since I cut the sleeves off!

                               My two jackets are from H&M and New Look

The scissors gave the edging a rough finish but i kinda like the frayed  look.

They're so versatile as you can throw them on over pretty much anything- long or short sleeved tops, they make you feel less nakey over a crop-top and they can also make a dressy outfit look a lot more casual and laid back. 

Please excuse the cringe picture of me!

                  Here are a few of my favourite style icons rocking the look:

All of the gals are wearing the denim waistcoat in different ways but each look fab :)
