The waistcoat is popular attire in a gentleman’s wardrobe because of its versatility and simplicity. Waistcoats are a statement piece. It has great impact and is difficult to ignore or overlook. It is very easy to style and coordinate with different pieces to create different looks.
Today we bring to you 7 different and charming waistcoat looks to try out this season.
1. Look 1: As a part of a three piece suit. This looks suave and debonair. You can either go for a double breasted waistcoat or a single breasted one in contrasting hues. You can pick a windowpane waistcoat or go for some other pattern. You can experiment with silk or tweed. You can even wear the WC with a tux. Accessorize with a stylish and elegant pocket watch and/or a lapel pin.
2. Look 2: Team up a waistcoat with a shirt and a denim jacket. You can wear trousers or make it a denim look with a pair of jeans. The shirt too can be a denim shirt. Do not wear a tie. If you are going for a denim on denim look then make sure the denim piece are in different shades.

4. Look 4: This is a very preppy, fall/winter look. Pair a shirt with a waistcoat and a cardigan. You can either wear a neck tie or sport a bow tie.
