Longline vests or sleeveless jackets seem to be a staple piece in every stylish girl’s closet. With East African designers like Kwesh Uganda and Anyango Mpinga making them part of their latest collections, it is definitely a hot item.They come in different lengths,cuts and fabrics. What I have on today is a coral combination of a longline vest and cigarette pants. Curated by Sharon Mundia of for Vivo Activewear.

There are many different ways to style a longline vest, including wearing it with a short sleeved top when it’s hot and wearing it with a long sleeved top or cardigan when it’s cold. Like I did. You can also wear it with a printed top for an interesting effect.

I accessorised this outfit by stacking some perspex rings from ziko afrika. Also, their brass, square studs are the cutest little stunners.

Of course the coral heeled sandals are the perfect icing on the cake to complete the monochrome look.

The vest and pants come in navy blue, white and coral just so you know. Feel free to get yourself one…Or all three colours here. Also, I’ll be showing you how to style the navy blue version of the vest and I have another fringe dress for you.So stay tuned!
