When the not so very clothes-minded person thinks of a vest, they're probably picturing something short and puffy, maybe having a faux fur collar, and the mental image they're getting is likely unisex and the fabric is likely nylon— aka boring af.

There are so many more variations of the vest than just the average puffer, and we're about to open your eyes to the best Winter (and not so Winter) vests that may appeal to you in ways you didn't expect them to.

So whether you're vest-obsessed or not a fan, see if you can find inspiration to fit these sleeveless options into your wardrobe.


When you walk into your closet are you greeted by a gorgeous floral hunter green bohemian vest? Well, you should be. This luxe vest is the perfect Winter vest to wear over a multitude of sweaters, tops, and tees. Isabel Marant always turns up the volume when it comes to her bohemian fashions and this flirty piece is no exception.

A feminine take on the classic suiting vest is always a good idea. Wear Temperley's bold backless bubblegum pink vest alone, or pair it with a long sleeve silk blouse to play up the power vibe.

At Shop It To Me we're really into personal styling, so for us it's all about how you style this knee length vest and not so much just the vest itself— which is gorgeous regardless. We suggest styling this long line belted suede vest with black straight leg pants or black straight leg denim, black pointed pumps, and a long sleeve black turtleneck. And we say, definitely tightly belt this Theory vest to accentuate your waistline.

Ganni's take on the denim vest is very modern in silhouette, but it still has an overall vintage-y feel. If you're not one who favors a classic blue jean look, try Ganni's version. We love the contrast of colors worn by the model, and we'd actually suggest something similar— a super tight and very sheer long sleeve turtleneck. We'd then add a rigid pair of denim, preferably with distressing, and booties to complete this classic ensemble.

A chic satin tuxedo vest is the new little black dress when wearing a dress isn't in the cards. Veronica Beard's version is an instant classic, and it looks great when styled with a mini skirt and a white poplin shirt underneath. Not feeling the skirt look?From lighter colored baggy denim to sleek black flared trousers, it all works with this vest.

If you keep a minimalistic wardrobe, this simple black sweater vest is really going to appeal to you. Adorned with small white buttons and two pockets in the front, this black vest is anything but boring.

A looser fitting vest is another great option to add to your wardrobe. Wear this belted khaki twill vest over any shirt or blouse to the office, or rock it with leggings and over-the-knee boots for a girl's night out.

A funky and unique well-tailored denim vest is also a must in any closet. Easy to wear and fun to pair with other assets already in your closet, this jean vest is versatile and a piece you will have forever. Trends come and go, but the vests on this Best Vests List will stay forever.

Another timeless vest to incorporate into your current wardrobe is this classic Versace cropped vest. Two-toned in black and white and featuring yellow gold zippers, this satin vest is another piece to buy and hold on to forever!

Last but not least on our Best Vests List is Theory's black belted faux fur vest. This Winter vest is so luxe, its inside is even admirable. Crafted from wool and cashmere, consider this vest best to wear in the Fall or Winter months.
