Let's Hear it for the Boys

Construction workers wear them. Girl scouts do too. So do Fashionistos. You might be wondering what these three different types of people all wear. All of these people occasionally don vests.

Sweaters, boots, jeans and scarves. Among these items, a vest is a fall style staple. Give this staple a different look by following this Fashionisto's example and layering a vest under your jacket.

This Fashionisto styled his down vest by layering it under his wool jacket. Despite the chilly temperatures, this Fashionisto kept his jacket open to show off this style piece. I love how this Fashionisto kept the rest of his outfit simple allowing his vest to stand out. By pairing it with neutrals, the orange and yellow of this Fashionisto's vest really pops! This Fashionisto's outfit is even more weather appropriate because the colors in his vest resemble the usual color palette of fallen leaves in autumn. This Fashionisto utilizes the neutral gray stripe in his vest to pull together his entire ensemble, by matching it to the color of his jacket and shoes.

For a more traditional look, you could layer this puffy, down vest over a sweatshirt or sweater and add a scarf to keep warm. But, I love this Fashionisto's look for a sporting event in particular as you can layer your favorite athletic apparel under a nice, warm coat and still show off your team spirit without freezing your butt off.

Remix a fall classic like this Fashionisto did by pairing a down vest under a stylish wool jacket. Add neutral pants and a pair of shoes that match and you're all “vested up”.

Hint: If you're going to layer your vest under your jacket like this Fashionisto did, make sure to leave your jacket unbuttoned to not only show off your vest but to avoid looking bulky or stuffy.
