Fall Outfit Ideas: 2 Stylish Ways to Wear a Puffer Vest

Fall is upon us, and the crisp air, colorful leaves on the ground, and a little bit of football are just a few of my favorite things about this season. Another thing recently added my list of fall favorites is a chic puffer vest.

Yes, I just used chic and puffer vest in the same sentence, but don’t worry:¬†These vests are perfect to wear on days with in-between weather on campus, when it’s not too hot but not too cold. Plus, they’re oh-so comfy!

Below, I’ve created two different outfits using the same puffer vest, to serve as inspiration on how to rock this look for fall. Scroll down to see them both!

Classic & Chic

Switch up the classic t-shirt-and-jeans combo by adding on a brightly colored puffer vest. Start by pairing a cute graphic tee with a pair of dark wash skinnies. (If the weather is a bit colder where you are, you can easily swap out the tee with a long-sleeved one or even a sweater.) Riding boots provide a perfect fall-ready appeal, while simple pearl earrings complete the ensemble.

You can also update your go-to plaid shirt for fall by layering it under a puffer vest. Tuck a plaid shirt into an a-line skirt, then slip on a pair of cute and comfy ballet flats. If the weather is a little chilly, slip on a pair of tights underneath. The puffer vest adds the perfect combination of functionality and style to this fall getup!

What do you think?

    Personally, I’m not into the puffer vest. I usually substitute ideas like this for a vintage fur one that I have because its so big. The ideas are great tho!

    Last Christmas my boyfriend bought me a Shearling collared cream with brown suede puffer vest. It was so Brokeback Mountain and looked so cozy I immediately fell in love with it! I pair it with a cardigan and it looks suprisingly stylish!! I really thought I’d look silly in it but it always gets compliments.

    I recently purchased a down-filled Jack Wills navy puffer vest just because the cream one was worn so much. Great ideas, I think puffer vests are the way to go! ;)
