This ensemble is built around our vest with attached tie (https://hoardcouture.com/collections/cool-weather-selections/products/necktie-vest) that was re imagined from a tired blazer into a long vest with an attached necktie casually draped over your shoulders. A matching belt made from the former sleeves can be used if you desire a closer fit. Shown with a white shirt and a wide legged cuffed trouser to reflect the pattern in the necktie. one could put in a day at work then go right out for cocktails. Add a dressier blouse or a short skirt and the presentation will be completely different. A fun oxford style bootie (that has ties of its own) and that old standby a "pop of color" complete the look. Because it is a neutral pallet, any "pop you got" will be perfect.
