VESTS Meaning and Definition

  1. Vests are sleeveless garments that are worn over the upper body, typically as a part of formal or semi-formal attire. Also known as waistcoats, vests are typically made of a variety of materials, including fabric and sometimes leather. They are often quilted or padded for additional warmth. The main characteristic of a vest is that it covers the torso, reaching from the shoulder to the waist or hip, and is fastened down the front.

    Vests are commonly worn as a part of a three-piece suit ensemble, accompanied by a jacket and trousers, especially in more formal settings such as business meetings, weddings, or social events. However, they can also be worn on their own as a standalone garment, usually in less formal or casual situations.

    Vests come in a wide range of styles, colors, and patterns, allowing individuals to choose one that suits their personal taste and fashion sense. They can be single-breasted or double-breasted, and the design may include buttons, zippers, or snaps for closure. Vests often have pockets on the front, providing storage space for small personal items.

    Although vests were historically considered a men's garment, they have become more gender-neutral over time, and there are now vests designed specifically for women as well. Vests can add a touch of sophistication, formality, or style to an outfit and are a versatile piece of clothing for both formal and casual occasions.
