I’ve always been a huge fan of vests. They give you that perfect layered look without the bulk of a coat. Especially living in AZ, a good vest is just about all you need to survive “winter” in the desert. Vests are perfect for those days where you want a little something, but aren’t quite ready to pull out the parka. The utility vest is my vest of choice this winter season.
Has anyone ever tried to wear a puffy vest in winter underneath a coat? You end up looking like the marshmallow man. While I’m a huge fan of puffy vests, they become hard to wear when the temperatures get closer to freezing. Now, that’s exactly the reason why I’m a fan of the utility vest. Since they are usually only one layer of cotton, they are super easy to wear underneath a coat, if needed. All the layers, none of the bulk.
I’ve worn this black utility vest multiple times since I got it. It is super comfortable, fits true-to-size, only $42, and I love the black color. I feel like most utility vests usually come in army green. I’ll admit, army green hasn’t historically been my color, but I’m starting to come around to it this year. However, I still was drawn to the black utility vest because it matches a good majority of the stuff in my closet. I know how to wear black and I know I’ll wear this beauty over and over this year.
While I love my black version, I linked to a few of my other favorite utility vests that are perfect for Fall and Winter. Click the arrows on the sides of the widget below to scroll through the options.
Are you a fan of the utility vest trend, or should it stay with the soldiers? Let me know in the comments below!!
