While a warm fall coat can be an elegant piece in and of itself, one of their main problems is that they cover up whatever top you happen to be wearing. With a fashionable fall vest on the other hand, you can show off your favorite new sweater or top and keep warm! In the following you'll find out about the best women's vests for fall and where you can pick them up.
This fall, Neiman Marcus is stocking a ton of high end fall vests. While many of them break the bank, they're designed to last you for the rest of your life and even be passed down to your daughter or granddaughter. Neiman currently sells the Tasha Tarno Pocket Detailed Fox Vest, which goes for $1,190. This one has a black dyed fox fur body with a spread collar, hidden hook and eye closures down the front and full coverage through the shoulder. The vest also has angled welt pockets and a low hem that comes down past the traditional vest hemline.
If you like the look of fur but don't want to imagine animals being killed for fashion, get the Kay Unger New York Faux Fur Vest. This one sells for $290 and has a stone brown faux fur body with a stand collar, open front and slash pockets at the waist. The vest also has a straight hem and full shoulder coverage. They also carry the Isda & Co. Faux Shearling Vest, which sells for $238. This one has a chocolate body with faux suede detailing, a shawl collar, open cascade froth and a low hem that comes down to the mid thigh.
Lastly, for a real showcase piece from Neiman, get the Dolce & Gabbana Fox Collar Vest, which sells for $4,525. This luxurious item has a black suiting flannel body with black dyed silver fox fur from Finland on the peaked lapel collar. The vest has a paisley satin back with an adjustable built in belt, a double breasted button down front and a boxy look.
Nordstrom also carries a few fall vests, many of which are quite affordable. The Juicy Couture Puffer Vest comes in white and sells for just $278.
