As the sun starts making a slight appearance in the small mountain town of Flagstaff, Arizona, we see girls ditching the heavy coats and snow boots for a lighter more casual look. I spotted this Fashionista on her way back from class rocking the perfect layer for this random burst of heat: a down vest. Down vests are one of my most favorite trends, they keep you the perfect temperature while pulling your ensemble all together. What I loved most about the outfit is how effortlessly chic our Fashionista made it look with her impeccable top knot.

How To: Take a page from this effortlessly chic Fashionista and rock a more casual look. Start by pairing a basic colored down vest with an oversized sweater. You can then keep the look relaxed and wear dark leggings or skinny jeans or if you’re looking to brighten it up wear a pair of patterned pants! Finally pick a pair of basic sandals or oxfords to keep this look fresh and clean.
