Invest in Vests

What's better than clothing that can be worn with a variety of pieces that can be carried over through the seasons? Nothing, if you ask us! That's why we love vests! Vests are perfect for layering over a t-shirt in the beginning of fall, and they transition great as it cools down as you can easily throw them over a sweater or coat! We love how popular vests are this season and can't stop expanding our vest wardrobe, so here are a few of our favorites!

This classic combination tops our list of favorite fall-time outfits! The simply chic denim shirt paired with a dainty and feminine burnt orange bralette and shearling leather vest creates the perfect balance. Throw these pieces on with leggings or dark jeans and any length boot or bootie for a quintessential  fall outfit! 

If you're a dress lover like we are, you're probably thinking of ways to continue wearing your favorite dresses without succumbing to frostbite. We also are trying to think of ways to continue to show our school spirit because who doesn't love burnt orange and white! We opted to throw this suede jacket over a white game-day dress with high socks or tights and boots to keep our spirit going while keeping us warm! Plus, the gem necklace adds a little extra shine, don't you think?!

Is there anything more warm and cozy than a plush warm vest? We definitely don't think so! We love throwing on a fluffy vest over a silky, chiffon piece to balance the outfit and surround ourself in comfortable textures! The combination of the deep burnt orange with the chocolate brown is easily accessorized with gold, white, or tan and screams fall to us!

Knits and fur define colder weather months style to us, so in efforts to stretch our closet a little more, we paired this knit-fur hybrid vest with a thin long sleeve dress! By accenting the grey in the dress with the grey in the vest, this outfit looks cohesive without being too matchy! To dress this look up, throw on some cowboy boots or heels and a little bling and you're good to go!

This bohemian inspired dress is perfect for fall on it's own, but is extra cozy with our fur and knit vest! The light brown ties in great with the intricate detailing of the dress creating a cohesive look! To add a little sparkle, we paired this outfit with our gold Texas necklace, but our Dursy necklace looks great and dainty with it as well!  All you need is boots or booties and you're looking boho chic! 

We can't wait to create new vest combination with these favorites! Let us know which is your favorite and show us how you styled it by tagging us on Instagram (@longhornfashions)! Stay warm!
