How To Wear A Puffy Vest Without Looking Like A Crossing Guard

February 19, 2010 by Aria Hughes
shefinds | Shop

Down vests have gotten a bad reputation: worn by ski instructors, forest rangers, and even crossing guards, it’s clearly not always seen as fashionable. But done right, it will not only keep you warm, but actually look cool, too.  The key to getting the look right is to pair the vest with unexpected, simple pieces like a jersey dress and a long boyfriend cardigan. Black thigh high boots and sweater tights will keep you warm without adding bulk, and a statement necklace dresses up the look.

See below to figure out how each piece in the look works.

The vertical seaming and nipped waist on this M.Julian Puffy Down Vest ($23.95) adds some sophistication, and makes the vest wearable for many occasions.

We love the coral color on this Old Navy Roll-Sleeve Jersey Boyfriend Cardigan (16.50), and the light weight jersey material is perfect for layering.

Tribal and ethnic prints are in for spring, and this Spiegel Colorful Beaded Necklace ($24) is an easy and affordable way to introduce the trend into your wardrobe.

Pairing an easy casual dress like this Banana Republic Pocket T-Shirt Dress ($98) with the down vest and cardigan is unexpected. And it is a smart investment that you can wear all year long.

If you are over leggings, these Hue Ribbed Sweater Tights ($22) are a nice alternative that will still keep you warm.

These suede Steve Madden Blondee Over The Knee Boot ($99.95) will add texture and elongate the leg. The wedge  heel makes the boots good for all day wear.

Check out the very best thigh high boots you won’t be able to resist–and at great prices. Baffled by a trend? Let us show you how to wear everything from statement necklaces to a step-by-step tutorial on how to wear mixed prints.
