In-between seasons, it’s nearly impossible to predict what to wear. The best way to look your best — without overheating or freezing — is to wear a vest.
Believe it or not, vests go well with everything. Cute dress? Check. Jeans and T-shirt? Check. Pant suits? Check. Plus, they can easily be thrown into your bag if the sun decides to shine bright.
Below are five different ways to warm up during the winter/spring transition with a vest (as modeled by our favorite fashion bloggers).
