Happy New Year everyone! I hope your holidays were relaxing and enjoyable.
The months of January, February and March in Houston can either be very cold, somewhat cold or mild. You just never know what to expect! We have had a few mild days this month and that is when I like to take the opportunity to wear some of my favorite winter vests.
One of my favorite casual winter vests is from J. Crew.
It is made out of down and polyester and is super warm. I love pairing it with jeans and booties or it is perfect to wear with workout gear while power walking or just running errands. In addition to the black vest I also have it in white, which I love just as much.
Another favorite casual vest of mine is from Barney’s. I love it because it has a bit of a funky vibe.
I saw it when I was on a trip to New York and I just had to have it! It is made of a jagged faux fur that makes it a bit edgy, which is a bit different for me since I’m usually a classic dresser. I love pairing it with jeans as well, but black leather pants would look great with it too! A crisp white blouse under the sweater completes the look!
This next vest is another favorite, although it is a bit dressier.
This is a faux rabbit fur vest from Neiman Marcus Last Call. It is super soft and looks like the real thing. I like to wear this vest out for dinner or if it is a special occasion, pair it with black pants for a sleek all-black look.
As I said before, now is the time that most retailers are putting their winter clothes on sale! I get emails from Neiman Marcus Last Call almost daily about their sales. Right now their cashmere sweaters are up to 65% off, so now is the time to stock up on things for next winter. Happy shopping!
