Vests are a fall and winter layering necessity: they add warmth and more depth to your outfits, and can typically be worn with just about any look! My 4 fall vest staples are a military/utility vest, puffer vest, faux fur vest and a knit vest. Each of these pair so well with your fall looks (think tunics, blouses, long sleeve tees, flannels and sweaters!) and are such classic pieces. Besides maybe the faux fur vest… but I don’t foresee that trend dying anytime soon. 🙂
Military/utility vests are super popular, and typically come in an olive or slate gray color. I, personally, love the olive the most! It looks great over a black and white striped shirt or dress, tunics, sweaters and even tanks for when it’s warmer out!
Puffer vests are also quite popular, especially the raved about J.Crew Herringbone vest! I own this one, but also love the other colors/patterns this vest comes in. I love that these also go with anything, and add a nice layer of warmth! While you can’t really dress these vests up too much, I love these for casual outfits!
The knit open-front vest shown in the photo is the exact one I picked up from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. While it’s not discounted at the moment, I totally think it’s worth the full price. It’s amazing quality and is very warm – perfect for when you don’t feel like wearing a sweater every day! It also looks great with a belt wrapped around it, if you wish to add a little something more. It’s currently in stock in the beautiful burgundy color, but check back often for Nordstrom to restock it in gray (and theres a black one too)!
Faux fur vests have been all over Pinterest the past few years! I love how a faux fur vest not only makes your look a little more feminine, but also adds beautiful texture and interest to any ordinary outfit. Faux fur vests come in all sorts of colors, but I personally love the natural looking brownish ones and the black ones.
I’ll definitely continue to style each and every one of these kinds of vests and show you guys on here as much as possible for your fall/winter vest outfit inspo! 😉
Thanks for reading, and HAPPY FRIDAY!! Anyone else celebrating Halloween this weekend?! We can’t wait to dress up… be on the lookout on Instagram for our costumes! 🙂
