Vests are the perfect fall/winter look that can take you from the gym to a weekend outing or an evening event, all based on your style. Down vests can go from the rugged outdoors to dressier events all based on the fit and how you style it. Look for a slimmer fit vest that doesn’t add bulk to your frame. Many vests can be warm without adding weight. Suit vests give a look a stylish edge, whether you pair this with denim or dress pants or a suit. Update this look by intermixing fabrics, such as a striped vest with a print button-down shirt and plaid jacket. Your pieces shouldn’t match but “play off each other”.
Style It– Pair your down vest over a wool or tweed sport coat. Make the lengths proportional so your vest is only 2-3 inches shorter than your jacket. Layer textures, fabrics and prints to create a rich look. Wear your down vest underneath a longer pea coat to create trendy layers. Suit vests look sleek when left unbuttoned. Look for vests with unique buttons and a piping to create a slim fit. Your belt is the style element to be paired with your suit vest. Loving stripes with plaid and prints. Intermix grays, blacks, navy, and burgundy for a rich look.
