We’re at the point in the year where I get really sick of giant coats. I’m fortunate to live in a pretty moderate climate here in Portland, but it’s rare I ever go anywhere here without some kind of jacket. So, friends, I have to keep mixing it up or this gal just gets so bored. Time for another puffy jacket, but make it sleeveless and long! Heh.
This Long Hooded Puffer Vest Is Making My Comfy Street Style Outfit
I ordered this amazing long puffer vest from Zella recently on a whim, thinking it looked like a great transition piece and boy did I luck out! It’s fabulous. So I wanted to style it up quickly for y’all, since their pieces always sell so fast. Spoiler alert: it’s comfy, it’s good, and I love it!
At first I wasn’t sure how I’d style up the vest beyond just an over-leggings-and-a-sweatshirt sporty look. That would be a lovely way to wear it and one I’ll probably repeat often. But I wanted to mix it up a bit. What am I wearing these days besides leggings? Yep, sweatpants. I threw on heeled clog boots and finished it off with a blanket scarf, and it’s my new favorite go-to for everyday.
Zella Puffer Vest: What a pleasant surprise this cozy vest was! I thought it might be tough to style, but as I mentioned, new fav outfit combo. True-to-size, a great hood, super-soft and cozy, and a perfect layer for this time of year.
The Great Sweatpants: These keep selling out, as we know from my recent post styling them up. But I’m digging this pair from Free People and this pair from Etsy, that are a little less expensive. If you want a regular, non-slouchy version, these sweatpants at Nordstrom look great and are under $50. I’ll keep my eye out for other pairs!
Clog Boots: My No.6 clog boots have also sold out, but I’m digging these boots instead as a more springy version and for a similar vibe without the shearling. I also love the Dansko boots I got recently, though they have a much lower platform.
Blanket Scarf: The one from & Other Stories looks almost exactly like my sold out scarf from Everlane. Love this color, and it winds up working with everything.
Minkoff Backpack: I just can’t quit these bags. They’re the best and easiest to carry. Love this subtle zebra print. Currently on sale for almost half off!
Shop Long Puffer Vests
This is probably the wrong time of year to find long puffer vests since they seem to be selling out, but I was able to round up a few alternatives! This one from Buckle won’t work in the widget below, but it’s super cute and $60!
Would love to have you follow all my daily musings, donut pics and dance parties over on Instagram @laurajansenstyle I try to keep it real over there, with a side of fun and a good dose of social justice.
