On Trend: Best in Vests


I’m not layering up yet (except to stay warm at my workplace – office air-conditioning – yikes!), but it’s never too soon to think about fall layering right? It’s one of the best things about fall in my opinion, besides football!

My three favorite kinds of vests are utility vests, suit vests, and quilted puffer vests. They each serve different purposes (casual, dressy, and warmth!), but they all can add a layer of interest to your outfit. These are some of my favorite under $100 options out there right now, and I’m sure more will be released as we get closer to fall!

ps. The J.Crew Factory vests are on sale today (and they’re rarely included in the sale)! Snag them up for an extra 20% off today with the code WEARTHESE.

pps. Check out my vest archives here to see how I have worn these types of vests in the past (minus the suit vest, I don’t have one of those!), and get ready for a fall and winter chocked full of vests!

    Vests are great transition pieces. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh man, that tweed puffer vest is VERY tempting…

  • Finally Target comes out with a good utility vest! Will have to check out – that’s been on my list forever. Probably my puffer vest collection SHOULD be complete, but hmmm, don’t have navy.
