Why are vests always so comfy?! What I love most about vests is that you can find so many different styles, ranging from casual/workout gear to ultra glam. Being that I live in a more casual atmosphere, I gravitate towards the outerwear and faux-fur styles because they are extremely versatile and warm (hello Iowa winters). When I shop for vests, I try to find styles that don't add too much bulk, especially because I like to pair them with flannels, sweaters and turtlenecks. If styled right, vests should actually compliment your shape, so although it might be tempting to purchase a vest to cover up, keep in mind what you'll be wearing under the vest. A favorite look of mine is a cropped vest styled with a long tunic or t-shirt; the contrast of the cropped vest with a long shirt will create balance while also elongating your shape.  

I've linked a few of my favorite fall vests below. Happy shopping!

  1. This look is beautiful. I especially love the layering top. I love how the the bottom is blocked into a sheer black material. It's so delicate and makes this outfit. Most people would say the vest is the M.V.P when it comes to outfits like this. But for some reason the top under the vest always grabs my attention first. Just beautiful. (:

  2. This is EXACTLY what I would be wearing right now if the temps were cool enough in Arizona! Lovely look, and very jealous of Iowa's current Fall weather. :) Xo, Alison
