I happened to be browsing the tall women’s clothing on Banana Republic’s website, and this double-breasted tall vest caught my eye for a few reasons. First, the subtle blush fabric is easy to pair with several different colors or patterns. Also, many tall vests I’ve come across seem to be focused on providing warmth and mostly fall into the “sporty” category while this piece is on the structured side with its double-breasted closure, notch collar and slightly textured fabric.
Another reason I’m drawn to this vest is its wearability. Vests tend to play well with a variety of styles since they can be layered over dresses, worn with pants or skirts, layered over a tank top or long-sleeve shirt etc. In a nutshell, this piece has the potential to see a lot of wear throughout the year.
I chose three different pieces to go with the vest: a pair of tall jeans, a “non-tall” printed skirt that should still work for us tall ladies, and a pair of tall polka dot pants.
