Personal Shopper: A Tuxedo Vest A La Maggie Gyllenhaal for Meghan

Meghan D writes, "Hi, Outblush! I love your site and I'm wondering if you can help me. I'm an intern at a law firm, and I'm interested in rocking a tailored menswear vest to wear to work over a blouse and wide-legged pants (classic like a blazer, but a lot cooler than one--I'm in the South!). Since I'm trying to look professional, I can't wear any of the vests with halter backs or low-cut fronts I see everywhere. Something like the vest Maggie Gyllenhal wears in the movie Dark Knight would be great (though maybe in a slightly longer length so that my shirt doesn't show at the bottom). Can you help? Thanks!"

Hey Meghan! We've concluded from doing this personal shopper that the world needs more women in snazzy vests. It's a great professional look, alas, one that's hard to come by! Hope we found you a few good options to check out!

1 - All Saints Olavo Waistcoat ($200)

2 - Georgie Peter Vest ($37, on sale!)

3 - Guess by Marciano Contessa Vest ($128)

4 - BB Dakota Riley Vest ($32)

5 - Helmut Lang Black Tuxedo Vest ($205)

Whoa Susan. Slow your roll there. Without some solid proof that those of us who wear vests are, as you say, "damned fucking bitches", I'm going to call shenanigans on your comment there.

It's a troll, Mags. Don't even listen. Not worth it.
