Do you wear long vests, toppers or dusters?

I especially like this one but I have never seen anyone wear one around here. I don't go out anymore other than the store, pharmacy or run errands. I know I could wear it anywhere but would I...

@luvmyteddy4 Yes I wear all three.  I did infact, order this one in the white& navy from HSN.  I love them I think they make a nice accent to any outfit.

I have a few, but cannot recall wearing them. I guess it's time to donate them.

 

I have a friend who is almost 6' tall. She wears them and looks great.

When I think of those types of garments, I think of Maude. As for myself...no.

I don't wear anything which goes past my knees, except pants/leggings.

I'm short and short people got no reason to wear 'em.

They're not really my thing but some people can pull it off quite nicely.

No.  I bought some long but not that long chiffon accent vests from Lori Goldstein a few years ago when she first arrived at Q, and a year later, realizing I would never wear them, I donated them. I don't find them practical.  It's like an embellishment that I don't need.

 

I was just reading a WSJ article from last month stating that button-free toppers that hang long look dated, "indicating that you’ve reached a 'too lazy to try' age that’s not an era but a state of mind."  So I won't be wearing them anytime soon.

 

Q seems to be carrying fewer of them.

I don't care for them but everyone has their own sense of style and what they feel comfortable wearing.
