1 Trend wise:
It is fashionable to wear a vest or waistcoat over T-shirts. The term waistcoat is used in Europe, while Americans refer to the garment as a vest. It's a great cover up during the slight chill in monsoons and also adds style to your personality.
2 Casual chic:
If you want a casual look, a waistcoat in an informal fabric, such as denim, cotton or linen can be worn over a simple, solid-colored crewneck or V-neck top. To look trendier by one can go for a waistcoat in a contrasting fabric or brighter shade.
3 Night time:
For the evening look one can select a waistcoat in a rich fabric, such as satin or velvet. Match it with a trouser in solid colour or a pencil skirt.
Avoid wearing chunky necklaces or pins but can go for rings, bracelets or earrings. Anything too big or loud will not match with the trend.
5 Fit right:
If the top is tight then the buttons of waistcoat should be left open and if it's a loose fitted top then you can close the buttons
