Style Advice of the Week

As the sun begins to chase the cold wind, our hefty winter jackets are beginning to become too warm. Instead of grabbing a lighter jacket, a great way to stay warm during this time between winter and spring is by wearing a puffer vest!

Puffer vests come in a variety of forms. Not only are they great for active or casual attire, they can also be a perfect addition to a dressier outfit. For example, throwing this hunting puffer vest from Eddie Bauer over a boyfriend crew sweatshirt from Victoria’s Secret PINK adds an extra something to a comfy-wear day. Or, you could pair this down-filled puffer vest with this blue ribbon oxford shirt from Banana Republic for a dressier accent.

This Fashionista finds a happy medium, looking winter chic in navy and camel. She’s rocking a navy puffer vest and camel sweater from J. Crew, a Michael Kors scarf, skinny jeans from American Eagle, Sperry Top-Siders hiker fish boots and a shining gold watch from Fossil. To execute a look similar to this Fashionista’s, pair this white Lauren puffer vest from Lilly Pulitzer with this coral waffle knit sweater from Forever 21, a pair of skinny crops jeans from American Eagle, brown Sperry Top-Siders hiker fish boots and this golden glitz watch from Michael Kors.

Fashionistos, you can rock the puffer vest as well! Pair this puffer vest by Patagonia with a simple striped thermal by Mossimo Supply Co. if you’re looking to stay casual, or try this Espon puffer vest with this oxford button-down by Polo Ralph Lauren to achieve a dressier look. Puff it up while you wait for spring, Fashionistas/os!
