This past week, we have been blessed with the most beautiful fall days with blue skies, lots of sunshine, and the leaves turning stunning shades of yellow and red. To most, October means pumpkin-spiced everything, Halloween and Hocus Pocus, and the arrival of temperatures that make way for lots of layering! A treasured layering piece in my fall wardrobe is my quilted puffer vest. For a girl who often shops with her corporate job in mind, I need pieces that can be easily taken from the office to the weekend and back again. Check out how I took my vest from casual to work appropriate.
This vest can be dressed up with a skirt, tights, and boots or dressed down with jeans and a collared shirt. For a more casual look, try pairing your vest with a patterned button up. It's great for casual Fridays at the office or a trip to your local pumpkin patch! For a work wear look, I dressed up this vest with a pair of brightly colored cords, a fisherman's crew neck sweater, and my trusty chambray shirt.
The best thing about a puffer vest is it has the extra layer of warmth you're craving without adding bulk like a heavier coat would. Plus, you can still easily show off the rest of your outfit! This tomboyish accessory can be easily transformed into something girly and glam if that's more your style. Wear your vest with a belt or layer it with a leather or jean jacket and a collared shirt—the possibilities are endless when it comes to remixing with pieces you already own. Soon enough you'll want a vest in every color!
