Staple eco-friendly vests for layering
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, we’re living in The Renaissance of the Vest. A relic of the ‘90s, the vest has truly come back in all forms. While they continue to be worn as practical base-layers, enveloping our torsos in some much-needed warmth during the colder months, they have also been making an appearance as fresh streetwear—coming in all shapes and styles, including puffer, knitted, and even (vegan) leather.
As always, we don’t recommend shopping based on fleeting trends. But if you’re looking to invest in a chic, new practical staple for your curated wardrobe, look no further.
To help you do just that, below you can find a special list of 20 of our favourite vests with brands divided between performance and style. First up in the style category, we’ve got Mother of Pearl (UK) serving subtly feminine and chic classic vests in neutral colours. Also a must-see is the swathe of utilitarian style vests including one by Dedicated (Sweden). Finally, before wrapping up, check out a few puffy performance vests including a shining gold one by one of our faves, Girlfriend Collective (US).
With that, happy browsing.
