Now, I know what you’re thinking. Puffer vests may be functional, versatile and super warm…but cool? NO WAY.
Well get ready for this, because puffer vests have moved up the fashion totem pole this season from basic to fashionable. We already know how to pair a puffy vest with a plaid shirt and knee high boots for a quick cold-weather outfit, but how do we bring real edgy fashion-forward looks into the mix? It’s simple:
1. choose a vest with less fill (it will still be warm!).
2. opt for a printed puffer vest instead of a classic solid color.
3. wear it like you would any other piece of outerwear! Sport it over pencil skirts, or with a midi dress, or belt it.
The styling opportunities are endless, so take a look at some of our favorite blogger looks and pick up our newest puffer vest at Crossroads this weekend!
Every girl should own a classic blazer. Oversized and slouchy or structured and chic, a blazer is the perfect transitional weather layering piece and can elevate any outfit. The bloggers below have mastered the blazer. They know when to layer it under jackets and scarves and when to keep it simple—either way, they keep the blazer the star of the outfit.
Check out some of my favorite ways to wear a blazer this fall!
Beth Jones, B. Jones Style
In this perfect fall outfit, Beth layers her blazer over a pair of slouchy overalls for a fun menswear-inspired look!
Brittany Xavier, Thrifts and Threads
Brittany pairs an oversized blazer over an otherwise casual look to create a chic weekend look anyone can pull off.
Jacey Duprie, Damsel in Dior
I absolutely love the color combination of Jacey’s outfit! Don’t be afraid to look for blazers in rich colors, textures, and fabrics for fall and combine them with complementary colors.
Sneakers, skinnies, and a layered blazer make the perfect tomboy look for fall.
Leandra Medine, The Man Repeller
Leandra is arguably the queen of blazers, and one of my favorite blazer looks of hers mixes some of the best fall trends: stripes, scarves, and over-the-knee boots!
Alexandra Pereira, Lovely Pepa
If you are new to wearing blazers, I’d recommend using Alexandra’s outfit for inspiration; it’s chic, comfortable, and attainable!
Erica Hoida, Fashioned Chic
Edgy and chic, using a blazer as a layering piece under a coat will take you from day to night, any time of the year.
There’s nothing quite as versatile as a fabulous vest. A vest can add that cool factor to your favorite jeans and T-shirt but can also take your date night look up a notch.
This season’s update to last year’s faux fur vest is a super shaggy vest made up entirely of looped yarn. We love it’s voluminous silhouette – it’s glamorous, soft and most important it’s fun to wear. The shaggiest vest yet!
Drinks with Friends
Glam it up in our Ombre Looped Yarn Vest ($42.50). Pair it with a silky graphic top, your darkest denim and black boots.
(Styling Tip: When the weather really cools down I layer my favorite vest over my leather jacket.)
It won’t take you long to get ready for date night anymore. If you’re headed out to dinner just slip on a mid-length bodycon under our Ombre Vest for an instant date night outfit.
Look out for the Grey and Ombre Looped Yarn Vests at a Crossroads near you this coming week!
The bomber is the jacket of the spring/summer season and I want to make sure that you have plenty of options for mixing it into your wardrobe. I consider it the perfect lightweight transitional piece: it works with everything from denim to a silk dress. Check out my round up below for tips on how to add a bomber into your wardrobe.
What’s better than one stylish coat? Two stylish coats, of course. Seems a bit overkill to wear two coats together, right? Not if it’s insanely cold out, and you want to keep warm without losing yourself (and your style) in a full body puffer coat.
Stepping outside of the box and breaking the norm once in a while are what will keep your style fresh. Take your fashion game to the next level by following these simple guidelines to layering coats and jackets this season.
