Waistcoats Are Back In Style: Vintage Inspired Fashion for Autumn 2021

FASHION HISTORY: THE WAISTCOAT

Originating in Persia, the waistcoat was popularised the UK in the 17th century by Charles II. It was originally a long coat with sleeves, worn underneath a normal coat as an extra layer. However, as fashions became more practical over the years, the waistcoat evolved into a short sleeveless vest as it is today. It was traditionally worn by men as part of a three-piece suit, but women like Marlene Dietrich have been incorporating them into their wardrobes since the 1920s. These days, waistcoats are widely available and are often styled as part of a suit, with a matching skirt or even on their own with a pair of jeans.
