Layering is a quick way to create new looks, and women’s vests make it easier than ever. Throw a suede or shearling vest from Marc New York or cupcakes and cashmere over a simple T-shirt to instantly add texture and sophistication, or wear a cozy puffer vest from Canada Goose or The North Face for a bit of extra warmth without bulk.
Puffer vests are a great way to add color to a casual look. Look for bright colors and bold patterns to spruce up jeans and a plain T-shirt. Pick a thick, extra-warm one to wear alone on crisp fall days, or choose a slimmer, quilted vest to layer under your favorite down-alternative coat during frigid winter weather.
On warmer days, create a graceful look with lightweight, flowing long vests from Avec, DKNY Pure or BCBGeneration. Open knits or lace designs are comfortable and on trend, or pick a design with a bright, summery print. Choose belted women’s vests for a polished, put-together look or open-front cuts for a more casual style.
For a more luxurious look, wear a super-soft mink fur vest from Maximilian Furs on those days when it’s not quite cold enough for full mink coats. Choose a wild faux-fur design from Via Spiga for a fresh, contemporary look that stands out at the club, or try out the flowing, upscale style offered by Karen Kane for a more professional appearance suitable for a casual office. Channel some vintage style with classic denim vests, which look great with skirts or shorts.
