Today I’m featuring my new favorite clothing item, a red quilted vest for fall. Now that we live in the Mid-Atlantic I have been having a ball preparing my wardrobe for fall. There are so many gorgeous textures and fabrics in fall clothing items, and many of them feel simultaneously warm and cozy. It’s a mix that has always appealed to my sensibilities, and one of the reasons fall is my favorite season to dress for.
One of the pieces I am most excited to add to my closet is a puffer vest. They add warmth and style to any outfit, and I love that they can be layered underneath a jacket as well. Since red is my favorite color, the second I saw this red Barbour vest I was obsessed. Here are some of my favorites-
I chose this chili red Barbour vest. Barbour is known for making quality clothes that stand the test of time, and this vest demonstrates that. Everything about it feels well made - the zipper is sturdy and snaps are substantial and the fabric quilting on the inside is soft and sturdy. I’m also a big fan of the tailoring, which is so important when you have an hourglass figure like I do.
Finally, I also love plaid for fall - be on the look out for lots of plaid inspiration this season - and have had this J.Crew Factory plaid oxford (similar) for a few seasons. Here are some of my favorite plaid shirts I’ve seen in stores this year -
