Well Vested

h1-24

As we’ve long bid our adieus to summer and the abundance of sunshine, warmth, and saccharine-colored dresses, there are certain wardrobe staples that I like to keep on heavy rotation when we plunge into Fall. Though the fickle weather has awakened our affinity for hot cocoa and toasty evenings by the fireplace, liminal time still exists for us to polish off our looks sans hefty jackets, thermal puffers, and shearling-lined boots.v2-36h1-7

My favorite outfits to work into that interim phase? A souped up moto jacket with a jersey panelled number. An oversized camel coat over a nifty sweater. Or an olive green suede vest with faux fur lining paired with a patterned blouse like this one I got at Nordstrom (where now you can save up to 40% at the Nordstrom Clearance Sale through November 11!)

While some wear a long vest like a sleeveless coat, others ditch the menswear-inspired look by choosing a gilet like this fuzzy TopShop version. But there’s one tenet of this trend that makes it a cult favorite – it can be worn open as a layering piece, so you can stick to your choice of minimalistic dressing with a faux fur vest in the same hue (all-black ensembles rejoice!), or add a bit of spunk with a printed shirt in the same color family.h1-11h1-27v2-12

Given the vest’s prominent color is green, I made sure my Tory Burch shirt picked it up along with other fall foliage hues (I also like this funky leopard print by Roberto Cavalli). And to give this eminently wearable outfit all the ease for travel and commute (granted you don’t have a chauffeur or you take public transportation to work everyday, you stylish urbanite), I paired it with black skinny jeans and brown Chelsea boots (this UGG pair I’m wearing has wool sockliner and foam-cushioned footbed!)

There you go, a classic Fall pairing that’ll have you one step away from perfecting those wanderlust-inducing snaps on Instagram!

  1. This ensemble is amazing! I typically get a pair of Uggs each year (I’m addicted), and this year I may have to get the one you have on. Faux Fur vests and moto jackets are a must for the fall/winter season; especially when layering.

    • Yes they are definitely the most comfortable shoes ever! I used to wear the suede ones all the time and it felt like walking on cotton candy, I’m so glad they came out with the leather kind but with the same shearling lining!! ❤

  2. This vest is fantastic. I have an olive green military vest and I could pair it with almost everything I own- I have a feeling that this one is the same! I love how you paired it with the stripes- I would never have thought to put it with that top but it works!

  3. Great outfit! I love the patterns of the blouse and the texture of the vest. The boots are gorgeous too. I agree, a vest is the best transitional piece for autumn before it gets really really cold.
