White Waistcoat: How To Wear One For Every Occasion

*This post contains affiliate links. See the end of the post for more details.


The waistcoat trend has been one of my favourite trends this season. Whichever waistcoat you buy, there are many different ways to wear one. Whether you dress it up, wear one for work or style it casually, there are some great options for wearing a waistcoat, whatever the occasion. I bought this white waistcoat I'm wearing here from *COS. It's so versatile and as it is so versatile and classic, I'll keep it for years and wear it with many different looks.

White waistcoat


I've scoured my wardrobe and found different waistcoat looks for different occasions/seasons. I did have a lot of fun putting these looks together!

Here are my white waistcoat looks:

1) The Everyday Look

White waistcoat looks.

I like to wear this white waistcoat for that simple everyday look. Each look is styled with these New Look straight-leg jeans. The first look I've styled with New look tan sandals and an old Topshop crossbody bag. In the second look, I've styled it with loafers from *Stradivarius and a New Look crossbody. 

2) The Day To Night Look

I love these looks as they're perfect to take you from day to night - with just a change of shorts. In the first outfit, the shorts are from Nasty Gal (from Vinted) and the tan sandals are again from New Look. The tan bag is the same one as the previous photo. In the second outfit, I paired the white waistcoat with ASOS denim shorts, Veja trainers and a New Look mini tote. 

3) The Workwear Look

If you're fed up with wearing blacks/greys/navy's etc to work, try a little bit of this! I bought these workwear-style trousers from Vinted and they're such a lovely length and perfect for work! My shoes are loafers from Stradivarius in the first look. The bag again is from New Look. In the second look, I've changed the loafers to my Veja trainers. This will be a good look if you work in a more casual work setting. 


I know the waistcoat trend won't last forever, but it's a trend I'm going to make the most out of by wearing the hell out of this waistcoat until it gets too chilly for me to wear! I have found some other waistcoats for you to look at if you'd prefer a different colour -






Let me know which waistcoat look is your favourite!

  1. Love this! I don't have a waistcoat, although this trend is something I'm sure I can get on board with! I really like how you've styled it with the beige wide leg trousers especially.

  4. This looks great on you! I've never found a waistcoat that suits me as I have quite a long torso so they just don't look flattering on me as most are too short!
