Must Have Vests For Autumn & Winter Layering

It doesn't get super cold here in San Diego, so vests are a vital part of fall & winter layering. Snow is nonexistent. Rainy days are welcomed with open arms & often danced in. You might catch yourself heading to the beach a couple times or at least the pool. 

Due to the moderate temperatures here, I chose the best Andrew Marc* vests to wear throughout the cooler seasons! If you, like me, find yourself drooling over the latest autumn layers, but know that some of them may not work for your climate, these are for you!

The dark olive Sam vest is pretty much the only thing you need for autumn & winter. Remove the faux fur trim & you could even wear it through spring. I love the originally designed patches! They're so rad, especially the lipstick one. 

The whiskey cream Sasha vest is reversible! One side is faux fur & the other is faux suede. Each side features two pockets to boot. It looks warm & cozy, but still something you could wear without overheating. I'd love to take this on my trip to Portland next month!

The black natural Sedona vest again features faux suede & soft faux fur. The oversized shawl collar adds drama & spunk. Keep your hands warm in the side pockets as you smile thinking about how fantastic you look right now.

The entire Andrew Marc collection is high-end, fresh, detailed, & fun with a range of both men's & women's outerwear. My favorite is still the Sam vest with its energetic & refreshing allure. I hope you have a wonderful fall filled with plenty of layering.

Which vest is your favorite? :]

  1. Wow, the whiskey cream is so beautifulll... But its so sad that i can't wear such as the raining season in Nigeria is coming to an end by november...

    cool collection girl especially the dark olive and the whiskey cream

  2. A vest is such a great way to layer up. These furry ones are even better since they're so warm!

  7. Ooo these vests are so pretty! I live in Phoenix, so like you, it doesn't get suuuper cold in the winter haha. I never even thought of vests being an option for places like ours! That's such a great idea. I don't own any vests, but Andrew Marc sounds like a nice start. ;)


  8. So great vests for layering! They are perfect for fall.
    Have a great day!

    such a great selection

  20. Yes, love that it's reversible too. :]

  21. Sounds fabulous. Where did you get yours? :]

  22. Right??! I've been into kimonos during the summer because they were sheer but provided some sun protection compared to nothing. Now on to vests for fall/winter. :]

  23. Reversible is always nice since it's a two in one purchase. :]

  24. I understand the feeling. We rarely have cold enough days to wear vests (especially furry ones) here in San Diego. :]

  25. I don't have any vests, but I want to change that!! :]

  26. I'm just getting into vests myself, but I'm learning to really love them! These are such good picks. The one on the far right looks lovely!

  27. It was from Primark!

  28. It's funny - I have never really gotten into wearing vests myself but this post has made me think that I should consider re-examining this trend!
