So hands down, vests are definitely my favorite layering piece of Fall and Winter! They come in all styles, warmth levels, colors, etc and it are so easy to throw over any outfit for the perfect finishing touch. Jackets pretty much replace your shirt completely, but vests allow you to show off your shirt as well! I love that.
I like to have a few different styles of vests around to match my outfit and my mood. When i’m in a rush and don’t know what to wear, my go to is always a fitted tee, jeans and a vest! That one extra touch makes it appear that you actually put some effort into your outfit (lazy girl fashion at its best y’all!).
Vests can be paired with jeans and a tee, as stated above, or even dresses, skirts, and shorts! They are one of the most versatile fashion pieces ever and I love getting my money’s worth out of one item!
Here are some of my favorite ways to style some classic vests:
- Faux Fur – Y’all went absolutely nuts for this vest when I first posted it on my Instagram a couple weeks ago. It is totally understandable why! This faux fur vest adds such a WOW factor to a simple outfit and is seriously cozy! I paired it here with some simple distressed jeans, cream sweater, wool hat and my fave booties. I just love the way this whole look came together! My vest is BB Dakota and is higher than what I normally spend at $85, but the quality was so good I fell in love! It’s also Prime Wardrobe eligible, so if you are a Prime member, you can try before you buy! I’ve also linked some similar options for you below.
2. Puffer Vest: I have a few different styles of puffer vest. Not all puffers have make you look…ummm, puffy. Their are all different fill levels and vest shapes, so if you want a more lean look, well baby you can get it. Here is one of my fave puffer vests in a gorgeous hot pink! I’m a southern girl through and through, so totally feel that bright colors can be worn year round! I picked up this beautiful pink vest from Belk, but have added some similar options below. I also get a ton of compliments on my J.Crew Herringbone vest. This exact vest is what bloggers have been crazy about for years! Its popularity shows, because they are completely sold out of this awesome vest! I do see them pop up occasionally on PoshMark if you are a member. I also will link up some almost exact options below! Last is the gorg floral puffer I tried on at Loft. I love a good printed vest. They also have THE MOST stunning leopard print vest, but were out of stock in my size at the time of try on. I will link both of those below!
3. Sherpa Vest: Sherpa is the material of the season isn’t it?! I am seeing Sherpa vests, pullovers, boots and leggings allllll over Insta! Sherpa is an unbelievably soft and warm material that just gives you all the cozy feels (plus looks ridiculously cute!) I wore this adorable sherpa vest (that I scored for less than $20) for our family photos this weekends and just loved it! It is crazy warm and I love how fitted it is! If you want to be able to wear this vest over thicker sweaters, definitely SIZE UP! If you get your true size it will be fitted.
4. Classic Fleece: You can’t go wrong with the classics! I love this awesome fleece vest. Its generally my go to throw on. I scored it for less than $30 and had it monogrammed for that extra preppy touch. It comes in soooooo many colors and is great with athleisure wear or jeans. The fleece vest also looks super cute tossed over a cotton dress with boots.
