It is the perfect weather to wear a lightweight puffer vest. When I get dressed for the day, I start with a tank, t-shirt or blouse, add a sweater or blazer and then top it with a vest. For the chilly mornings I throw a trench over it all and add a scarf. Layers, and more layers, that can be peeled off as the day warms up in the afternoon and early evening. I have a similar vest to the J. Crew (No. 1) that I got a few years ago and it is a wardrobe staple that I wear pretty much all year long. I have even worn it during the Summer when I am in a location where the temperatures dip in the evenings. I pictured only black ones, but many of these come in fun colors and other neutrals. Besides keeping you warm with out the bulk, another great feature is the Patagonia’s, Eddie Bauer and EMS can fold into their own pocket or a travel sack, making them easy to store or carry when not being worn. I am thinking about getting the Eddie Bauer (No. 6) to wear when I am walking and/or running. I like the idea of the stretch panels and breathability for workouts. What about you? Do you wear a vest that you love or are you looking to add one to your wardrobe?
