Vests may not usually rank as high as, say, jackets on the list of pieces we covet each fall, but if there's anything that can give them a boost, it's a good street style look. Here, we've rounded up 22 outfits with vests that'll inspire you to break out the ones you already have sitting in your closet and even shop for a new style or two.
Because the underappreciated layer comes in just about every material you can think of, from tough studded leather to businesslike checked wool, there's something for every style (not to mention climate). Even the oft-maligned sweater-vest looks chic paired with some unexpected prints and stylish accessories.
Below, see how the fashion set pulls off vests all year round.
