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!"
