Layering is the best way to stay warm in winter weather and one of my personal favorite ways to style this trend is with vests. A vest is a great way to showcase your wardrobe and many styles can be worn from fall until spring. Plus, these layering pieces let you stay mobile for everyday activities. Head below to find our top picks for the best outdoor vests from $30.
One place I love to shop for high quality vests is J.Crew or J.Crew Factory. For men the Mercanitle Walker Vest is a great choice and its quilted detailing adds a sophisticated touch. Priced at just $35, this vest can be seamlessly dressed up or down and it’s available in either black or navy.
Another great option for guys is the Trekker Vest that features very on-trend contrasting colors. It also includes two different materials (suede and nylon) for a unique look. Plus, this vest can be machine washed to keep it looking nice for years to come. This vest is currently on sale for $30, when you apply promo code OHWHATFUN at checkout.
The North Face
If you’re on the hunt for an outdoor vest, The North Face has an array of options for you to stay warm and look great. A personal favorite is the Mountain Sweatshirt Vest that’s priced at $69. This vest is lightweight and waterproof. It features a high neckline to help keep cool air out. Even better, its two zippered hand pockets help to store small essentials.
For women, The North Face Aconagua II Down Vest is a perfect option for layering. I love its down, puffer look and it comes in an array of colors. Style this vest over sweatshirts, sweaters, or long-sleeve shirts for a cozy look. You can find it for $99.
Having a reversible vest is such a score because you are really getting two vests in one. Patagonia’s Men’s Reversible Bivy Vest is an all-time favorite. Insulated with down, the Bivy Vest will help to keep you warm. On one side the vest is made of a nylon two-tone material. However, on the other side you will find a solid windproof polyester material. Either way you wear this vest, you can not go wrong. It’s priced at $189.
Finally, for women, the Barbour Fleece-Lined Quilted Vest is a classic and timeless piece you can have in your collection for years to come. Its gold accents add a luxurious touch while its fleece interior adds warmth. I personally own this vest and it’s very high quality. The Barbour Vest is priced at $149.
