How to Style a Vest | What I Wore

Do you have a vest? Do you wear it? Not only can it provide a warm layer on chilly days, but it can also be a real fashion statement. What's also great about vests? They have no age limit.

A few years ago, I received a down vest from Lands End as a gift. It has become one of my favorite wardrobe staples.While it isn't very dressy, I can wear it on walks on colder days with yoga pants and a t shirt and then pair it with casual outfits for lunches, outings and trips. It's such a practical piece, and when you add accessories, it's also very stylish.

Recently, I wore my tried and true with a simple cashmere pullover and boot cut jeans.I added a scarf for extra warmth too.
