The Chic 9-5 Piece That’s Celebrity-Approved

The Chic 9-5 Piece That’s Celebrity-Approved

Planning our 9-to-5 looks prove to be quite a challenge especially with 5 days (6 to some) in a week. That’s why for most of us, our daily uniform consists of a versatile top and a pair of jeans/pants with a jacket on top. Jackets or blazers not only provide a sense of warmth in the office, but they also instantly elevate any boring outfit. However, once you step out of the building, it usually ends up as an accessory on your arm because let’s face it, Manila isn’t really the best place to layer. Enter the vest a.k.a sleeveless blazer. It’s a third-piece-alternative that’s versatile, functional, 30-degree-weather approved and celebrity approved.

See 4 ways to wear the vest according to celebrities below.

For an easy desk-to-dinner look like Kim Chiu’s, go for a camisole top, cropped trousers, and a pair of standout heels. After work, all you need to do is unbutton your vest!

How do you mix edgy and polished? We love how Kathryn Bernardo topped off her matching crop top and trousers with a long white vest accessorized with cat-eye sunglasses and minimal mules.
