This Y2K Trend You Must Wear!

It didn’t matter if you were singing along to “Sk8er Boi”, or “Girlfriend”, Avril Lavigne’s songs. This could be due to the aforementioned earworms, or because of the ex-MTV star’s alternative-leaning style sensibilities. I know that I am not the only one who remembers how Avril Lavigne wore more masculine pieces such as neckties, singlets and cargo pants on a regular basis.

The form-fitting black waistcoat that Lavigne wore to cover Lucky’s 2007 shopping magazine is a must-have. Lavigne is wearing a button-front vest over a white camisole in that photo. This look has been copied many times over the years. This waistcoat is simple, elegant, and clean. It can also be used as a layering piece, especially in transitional seasons.

Although I have tried the look once or twice, I learned that not all waistcoats work equally well. The internet offers a wealth of options for both plus-size and straight-sized women, including breathable linen vests and cropped designs as well as satin and pinstriped options. Check out the following to find all the coolest vests and waistcoats for your inner Y2K star.

  • Pretty Little Thing Plus cream Halterneck Waistcoat

Sizes Available: 12-26

PLT presents this cream-colored waistcoat. It is corset-like in that it can cinch everything in, but also has an open back for bold day-to-night style. For a chic and effortless outfit, get the matching pair of tailored trousers.

  • Eloquii Long Tailored Vest

Sizes Available: 14-28

For those who want more definition but still prefer a boxy look, a long-lined waistcoat with a slightly larger cut is the best choice. This is a great choice for any back-to-work look.

  • Cider Plus It’s Just Business Babe pinstripe Halter Top

Sizes Available: 1XL-4XL (Shop M-L)

In a roundup of the top button-up vests or waistcoats, we couldn’t leave out the timeless suiting detail of pinstripes. Although this Cider vest is slightly more cropped than the others, it still exudes all the menswear vibes that we came here for.

  • Porridge Seamed Stripe Vest

Sizes Available: XS-3XL

The details are what make this cotton and linen vest so special. From the natural fibers used to the adjustable waist to the blue pinstripe back panel, there are so many more than meets the eye. This is a great choice for a baby tee/cami. (IYKYK, this is fashion-forward early-aughts styling)

  • Valleria Vest for Free to All

Sizes Available: XS-XL

This vest made of lacy cotton is designed to be worn in the heat of the sun. Its breathable eyelet design screams springtime dressing.

  • UO Ali Menswear Vest

This muted beige silhouette is the perfect combination of the two.

  • Eloquii Crop Vest

Plus-size-first retailer wants to make you look as good as a butter stick. We love the cute collar and the thick-lined, oversized buttons.

  • NastyGal Multi-Check Cropped Button Down Vest

Plaid is a timeless pattern for suiting clothes. With its vibrant mix colors, this green-orange check gives a modern twist to the classic pattern.

Wild Fang clothing has made queer people feel comfortable in their bodies for a long time. This rosy pink corduroy vest is both stylish and adorable, so grab it while it’s still available.

  • H&M Suit Vest

The fashion world is loving deep brown colors right now. You will look just as sweet as Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory with the mini lapels, and waist-hugging waistcoat.

  • eVogues Plus Size Button Up Stretch Vest

This look is a little more stretchy than the rest. Stretch can hug the most curvy areas of the body. If you are looking for a fitted vest to wear with figure-skimming pieces, this one is going fast.
