The Hottest Vests to Complete Any Outfit

Vests are that versatile staple in your wardrobe, with the power to transform an outfit from blah to wow. Not to mention, they add a layer of warmth on chilly fall days. This sleeveless style can be rocked many ways whether you choose to layer over a sweater or workwear, or pair with classic Chelsea boots or stylish sneakers. This season these are the three key vest trends to invest in that will instantly elevate your style.

Puffer Vests

It doesn’t get more classic than a puffer vest. This outerwear heavyweight is equally practical for hiking as it is worn as a fashion-forward look over a midi-length skirt or chic blazer. Whatever way you wear it, you’ll be guaranteed to feel cozy and look cool.
