Cold weather is upon us, which means it is vest season! Vests are workhorses in our wardrobes, comfortable to wear and stylish too. For outdoor enthusiasts, a quilted vest gives you added warmth and the range of motion you need without the bulk of a traditional jacket. Whether it be a morning run, a brisk walk with a friend, or a round of golf, a vest has you covered. You can also wear lightweight styles under another jacket when the weather gets really cold. Are you starting to see how versatile they are?
Vests are not just for exercising. Add a cozy sherpa or faux leather one as a third layer to any outfit and you will instantly look chic and put together. This season knitted vests are on-trend, and pairing one with a turtleneck, flannel, or white button down could instantly up the style factor and warmth of your ensemble. I have found lots of great choices, so keep reading to see my top pics for vests you need right now.
