The Waistcoat is your new Spring style hero

 Olivia Palermo paris fashion week waistcoat

 Last week The Telegraph bought to our attention there's a new It item spotted doing the rounds on the street style circuit, and thanks to its classic connotations, it stands to have more longevity, but is also likely to raise a few eyebrows. Read on for the case for...THE WAISTCOAT.

The trend from yesteryear now looks more contemporary than ever, with the style elite wearing them oversized, loose and boho as well as prim and fitted. So, what was once only Kate Moss-suitable- now appears the ultimate fashion IT item that looks chic on street-stylers  as well as your trendy grandma. Cinching in your waist whatever you shape as well as giving a power-dressing stamp to your look; the nostalgic piece is once again cool.

As is always this trend began on the catwalks: Max Mara, Burberry and Celine all championed the waistcoat in different guises, from the cropped and fitted to the long and belted, offering styling inspiration galore along the way.
