I.LOVE.VESTS. My brother-in-law jokes that I have a syndrome called “hot arms/cold chest” and when my S.I.L. bought my niece her first vest, she texted me a pic immediately. You could say I’m a big vest-obsessed.
If you see me around from September to April, this is likely how you’ll see me dressed!
Vests just make sense for the climate that I live in. With those days where you need to bundle up in the morning and evening but the days are sunny and “cool” rather than “cold”, a puffer vest is truly the answer to outerwear. Maybe you live in a temperate zone with cooler nights and a jacket is just too much. Perhaps you like the layering capabilities of vests for outdoor activities.
In my mind, there are a number of utility reasons for vests, but those don’t seem to matter because I just love them regardless!
Here are my favorite vests for this year! Scroll side to side on the images and click to shop your faves!
Light, Packable Down Vests
Packable down is a new favorite of mine! After shopping at UNIQLO in Japan last spring and picking up this lovely vest, I take it everywhere. Perfect for summer hikes in the mountains, cooler days and layering, packable down is a great option!
Here are my fave packable down options:
Full-On Puffer Vests
The puffer vest is my favorite of all vests! I live in a northern climate and these are an absolute wardrobe must for me. My fave is definitely the navy number shown above, but this herringbone pattern with detachable faux-fur trimmed hood (no longer available) is another favorite for sure!
Here are my fave puffer vests right now:
Faux Fur, Shearling + Other Vests
This vest arena is new for me, I’ll admit, but I love the additional options! These vests make for great outfit add-ons without seeming as outerwear focused.
Here are my fave non-down/puffer vest options:
