I love this time of year in the northeast. The weather is cool enough to wear all my cute sweaters, but not so cold that I have to bundle up like the Michelin man. And a down vest is the perfect topper for fall. I have a black one that I wear almost every day (over a sweater, over a denim jacket, over a button-down shirt depending on the temperature), so I decided I’d invest in another one. Here are 5 down vests for fall I found. They’re all great, but I ended up with the metallic vest from Land’s End. It’s a great price and very chic. Look for a vest with quilting that is diagonal or a diamond pattern, so the fullness won’t make you look wider!
The North Face Thermoball Vest. Love this color. Also comes in light grey, black and black with a gold zipper. Free shipping and returns. $149
Land’s End Metallic Down Vest. I looove this vest! Land’s End runs big, so I ordered a size smaller than I normally would. $59
Land’s End Bright Down Vest. If you want a bright color, this is the vest to buy, and you can’t beat the price! Also comes in hot pink, red, bright green, bright purple, neon lime, orange, brown and ivory. $49
Patagonia High Collar Vest. The off-center zipper and high collar take this vest up a notch in style. Free shipping and returns. $149
Bernardo Hooded Packable Vest. A packable vest is ideal for taking a trip this time of year when you don’t know what the weather will be like. Also comes in black. Free shipping and returns. $118
