Long SleevedLong sleeved vests make the ideal top for around the house, when its too cold for a t-shirt and too warm for a sweater. Theyre breathable and with varying necklines you can wear a long sleeved vest for a casual look, or alternatively, go for a rounded neckline, with a half-button up, or a zipper, to give you a dressy look. For added comfort, wear the long sleeved vests with a pair of Fabi ballet pumps.
The undershirtUndershirt vests are ideal for daytime or wearing to bed. You can layer them off easily with a t-shirt, or wear them with your favourite Schott NYC cardigan. For a layering effect, the round neck vests are ideal for creating a casual look. You can use accessories, such as a pouch or handbag from the Moony Mood range, to add a corporate twist to your outfit.
Going for sleevelessThis can be a scary look to attempt, but the results are so worthwhile. You can create a professional look with a sleeveless vest, top it with a waistcoat, black trousers, add in a stylish pair of Emporio Armani court shoes, and youve got yourself a corporate look, with a twist of casual. You can go further by adding a few accessories here and there. Sleeveless vests are forgiving, in the sense that you can glam them up with a variety of apparel. What style suits you?

3 Ways to Wear Your Under-Appreciated Undershirts
Undershirts are as key to a man’s wardrobe as their underwear. It is a practical piece of clothing that provides warmth and protection. Apart from the particularly dapper man, most guys probably don’t put much thought into it after they pull them on. But these functional tees are more versatile than your average underwear.
We’ve brought to light the history, the purpose and the innovative new technology to show you new ways to wear your undershirts.
The Tough Guy
Embrace your inner Marlon Brando with a vintage twist to your white tee. In the days when leather jackets, tight jeans and slicked back hair reigned supreme, the white tee was reinvented as more than just an undershirt. Wear your tee, sleeves rolled to just above your biceps, with a pair of crisp blue jeans cuffed at the ankle. Bring the look to the modern era with the right pair of black dress shoes or loafers. Then, throw it back to the 50s again with the era’s favorite rebellious eyewear– a pair of wayfarers.
The Cool Guy
An undershirt is a necessity in menswear. It provides a protective barrier between your body and your dry-clean-only clothes. Wear it under dress shirts and cardigans to whisk moisture away from the body, keeping you dry and your clothes clean. It also unfortunately, adds one more layer in the already stuffy attire of business casual attire. The next time you are planning to slip into the traditional sports coat and button down, consider cutting out the middle-man. Skip the button down and pair your tucked-in tee with a blazer and pants. Keep your look professional with polished accessories, like a watch or a sophisticated man-bag.
The High-Tech Guy
High-performance undershirts are typically worn under other athletic gear or on their own. Made of microfiber or other synthetic fibers that keep you dry, this shirt is ideal for athletes. The high-tech fibers also control your body temperature, lending itself well to formal wear. For the warm-blooded few, you may want to invest in a few of these to pair under sweaters or suits in place of your cotton tee.
Now that you have a new appreciation for this anything-but-basic tee, rework your wardrobe to optimize your comfort and your style.
