I bought a lovely bohemian vest in suede. How to care for it properly?
Suede vests are a boho girl's closet staple and a stylish piece for any Western-inspired look. A good idea is to protect it with a purpose-made suede protecting spray. Especially in all the places which come into contact with the skin, the neckline for example. Don’t be tempted to put the vest into a washing machine. Suede should be spruced up and cleaned by a professional dry cleaner. When getting rid of small stains, use a special brush which should loosen up the dirt and remove it.
Is a high-low vest a good idea and for what body shape?

If it’s a prominent feature, you might consider a different style.
