Would You Wear Multi-Colored Vests Like Mischa, Jessica and Sienna?

Vests made a comeback last fall — and from menswear-inspired to open cropped styles, we thought we’d seen them all. But then some fashion-forward stars have come up with a new twist on the wardrobe staple — cropped, multi-colored vests. From Mischa Barton‘s all-sequined number to Jessica Simpson‘s bright macrame version to Sienna Miller‘s metallic patchwork, the trend seems to be taking hold of some pretty stylish women! Besides the cropped length — which is tough for most women to pull off — there is something about these that seems more costume-y than retro-cool. But maybe that’s just us! Tell us: Would you wear these multi-colored vests? Is this a trend you want to try?

I wouldn’t wear Mischa’s vest, but the other two are pretty cute. I may wait for this style to catch on more before I jump in though.

Amanda on

Definitely. They look great.

Kristine on

It`s look very bad!!

Tristan on

No thanks, slightly too… “I just pulled this out of the back of my mom’s closet”

Carter on

I would wear Jessica’s vest. Its cute and stylish.

I think Jessica and Sienna look adorable in their outfits. Mischa looks ridiculous in those high waisted sequined pants.

Megan on

All three look great. I would wear them.

Ew. I missed Mischa’s sequined pants! Good eye, RT. Those are hideous.

Nina on

I’m not big on vests, and more than likely wouldn’t ever wear one (not since 1990 at least), but Jessica does look very nice in that picture, and the vest suits her. I’m not so sure about Mischa or Sienna though – they’re not really famous for their fashion sense.

Rebecca on

Sure- I love Jessica’s vest. The other two, not so much.

samantha on

they should all get beat for wearing these.

Kristi P on

I love Jessica Simpson’s vest. I want that vest for myself. How adorable!

tuha on

i like jessicas if she put it with the right clothes.. the other two seem a little tacky

I’d wear Jessica’s vest. Hers looks really cute. There’s nothing glittery or sequined about it. The vest has a neat design and color to it, and the vest is definitely wearable.

I would never wear anything Mischa wore. The only thing I ever liked her in was the eyelet dresses she wore this Summer, she looked decent, but other then that her style is not my taste and it’s really tacky in my opinion. Anyway, her vest is tacky, and the high-waist sequined pants don’t help neither. Sienna’s vest is okay, I don’t really care for the patchwork though.

Not in a million years.

I would NEVER wear a vest. I thing that they’re really ugly and just a fashion ‘no’

A on

AA on

I would defintely wear Sienna’s vest, but not the others.

Krissy on

Jessica looks cute,but I couldn’t pull it off! The other two look like they are trying to hard.

Ruby on

Yes totally!

lauren on

Katherine on

danielle on

i hate all of the vests. there all ulgy and i would never wear one!!!!!

julie on

i wouldnt wear any there really ugly

shelby on

I would wear Jessica Simson’s vest only.

T on

I would if I had the shape to pull one off. To wear a crop vest I believe a small waist would look good and bring attention to your hips. I believe a normal length vest if thin would help you look thinner. The design and material would depend what you are wearing with it and your mood.

Julia on

totally. especially Sienna’s!! they look great for layers

who cares on

its not really my style, so no. It looks great on Jessica and semi-ok on sienna, but mischa barton needs some help. She’s gorgeous, but she wears ugly clothes.

hannah on
