The Suede Fringe Waistcoat.

I found this little number whilst at work, digging around in the Peekaboo Vintage concession at Topshop, Oxford Circus. It's insane! For a vintage 1970s piece it was in beautiful condition! It features two neat rows of fringe and is made from camel colour suede. Camel suede alone is a dream - I felt like it could sit comfortably amongst SS15 collections shown at Milan Fashion Week. Chloe, Gucci, Etro, and Alberta Ferretti all showcased beautiful 1970s notes in suede. 

I imagined to myself all the fun I would have with it as I tried it on in the mirror. I always love a good nod to western culture, and vintage America. This would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe, and was not quite like anything I yet owned. A unique piece, but yet versatile. Add it to old denim for a really rugged, worn look, or partner up with a summer dress for contrasting feminine chic.
