Vests add such a wonderful flair to anything you decide to wear during the colder months. They define your tops and can perfectly accentuate your longer shirts. By wearing a vest over your typical attire, you can add a twist of fun and, in some cases, some extra warmth!

My first feature is a simple black drape-front waistcoat vest. The front effortlessly flows and it’s a nice vest to pair with bold leggings. It’s a staple piece for your closet -- both the color and style make it transitional.

My next feature is a little sassy. Check out this brownish faux fur vest. This vest has the big collars that I absolutely adore. It’s a vest that anyone can definitely use as a jacket because it will keep everyone warm. Another perk to this ultra fab vest is that it’s reversible, with the other side being faux suede. Layer it up in charismatic style with this fluffy and soft piece.

If you wear medium sizes then you are in total luck, because I found a puffer jacket that’s adorable and on sale. I am not a huge fan of puffer jackets, but when it is cold you won’t have much of a choice. This puffer jacket is a part puff and wool blend with oversized pockets. This is a unique mix of material that turned out awesome! Get the casual look down with this surprising twist of a vest.

Next up, this simple cozy vest will keep you warm and comfy. The vest has a blanket collar with snap features and drawstrings that cinch the waist for a perfect fit. The inside of the vest features faux fur lining. The light camel/brown vest is styling but it is very low key, which makes it very attractive to me.

T Tahari Angel Vest

Finally, Burberry’s magenta vest is hot! This color is explosive! It stands out and it is practical for everyday. Although the price is more than I prefer to spend on a vest, I love its design. Burberry designed this vest wonderfully and I think it is one of the most flattering thick vests I have seen. It has a nice shape and little details that make it stand out from the rest.
