I posted a street style article about a week ago highlighting the puffer vest. I wanted to take the opportunity to showcase the diversity of the vest in a smart casual setting.
It's cold, I know. That being said, you don't have to wrap yourself up in a heavy jacket and scarf (unless you do it like this). Use a vest in place of a sport coat or suit jacket and stay warm in the process.
That being said, it's not smart to throw on a vest without a sweater first. The classic crew neck or v neck sweater over a button down shirt is a classy choice that shows you know your way around a closet.
- Smart casual can always benefit from a good vest.
- Grab a crew neck sweater with the V stitching. Cheap ones available here.
- Fingerless knit gloves are awesome. That, or driving gloves are the way to go for the winter.
