When it comes to an item in my wardrobe that I like to wear in autumn, spring and winter, the quilted vest is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing. The biggest reason I like it so much is that it can look great with almost any causal outfit. In addition, I often only feel slightly cold and a quilted vest only gives me the slight warmth to keep me warm. I usually try not to dress too bulky unless the weather is freezing cold. Instead of wearing a really thick coat, I just put a quilted vest over a sweater or long-sleeved t-shirt. Now let me introduce you to some of the best ways to wear a quilted vest.
Red checked quilted waistcoat over black sweater
I know the black quilted vest is the classic color, but I’ll start with a unique and beautiful looking red plaid quilted vest to grab your attention. When you layer it over a long sleeved black t-shirt or sweater and then pair it with jeans, you get a happy and beautiful causal outfit.
Black quilted waistcoat over gray long-sleeved T-shirt
This is an outfit idea that is likely to make you look slimmer, taller, and easy to pull off too. Just put the black quilted vest over a long, gray long-sleeved T-shirt. The key to this outfit is that the shirt has to be slim and long. In combination with skinny jeans and sneakers, this is a perfect street outfit.
Dark blue quilted vest over a black striped T-shirt
You don’t always have to put the quilted vest over a plain top. Quilted vests are great for striped t-shirts, especially white t-shirts with black or dark blue stripes. With this outfit idea, you can see that a blue quilted vest and a black striped t-shirt make a comfy looking combination.
Long quilted vest
In colder weather, it’s a good idea to wear a long quilted vest to keep your body warmer. That’s the functional part. The styling part is that it can make you look slimmer, especially if you have a pear-shaped body.
Black quilted vest with a warm shirt and a refreshing hairstyle
So far I haven’t addressed the importance of your hairstyle. Now this outfit idea is dedicated to those of you who have refreshing short hair. If you’re one of the lucky little group that looks good with short and slightly wavy hair, you can try pairing a black quilted vest with a warm top and jeans. Although the combination seems easy on paper, you can’t imagine how gorgeous you will look when you pair this outfit with your short hair.
Light brown quilted waistcoat over denim shirt
I mentioned a lot of outfit ideas that combine a quilted vest with a solid color t-shirt or sweater. This outfit idea is more unique in terms of the use of color and texture. Putting a light brown quilted vest over a denim shirt and white jeans is a refreshing outfit idea.
Cream quilted waistcoat over black t-shirt
Cream over black is another color combination that will make you look more unique. This outfit has a more serious hue and is really for you if you want to be low key in the office.
Quilted waistcoat with faux fur hood
If you want to add a few details that can spice up your outfit, choose a quilted vest with a faux fur hood. Not only can it make you look more feminine, it can also keep your neck warm in cold weather.
Red quilted waistcoat over a cream-colored knitted sweater
Red is a color that can make you stand out especially in winter. The red quilted vest over the cream knit sweater is a great example of the use of color contrasts to attract eyeballs. This combination of texture, knitwear and quilted vest makes this outfit so easy on the eye.
White Quilted Waistcoat over Navy Striped Tee
I’ve talked about many ways to wear the black quilted vest. Let’s talk white now. When you put a white quilted vest over a dark blue, striped long-sleeved T-shirt, the result is a happy and refreshing looking outfit. This color combination is especially good when spring comes.
Team it with shorts and a brightly colored striped t-shirt
Now let’s talk about an outfit idea that you can take off in spring, including summer. Among this list, this idea is the most youthful outfit idea. You simply combine a quilted vest with shorts and a colorful striped T-shirt. That’s it. Try this outfit idea to look energetic.
Yellow happy look
If you have a happy personality inside you, you can probably wear yellow. I know you probably don’t wear a yellow quilted vest as often as a black one, but wearing a yellow vest every now and then can really make you stand out from the crowd. Often times, wearing yellow makes you feel happier. So, don’t look dark and cool every day, try to look sharp and cheerful sometimes.
Wear with a scarf and sweater
A quilted vest is so versatile that it goes well with different outfits. Team it with a scarf and sweater for a more stylish look in the fall.
Black quilted vest over hoodie
This is another classic outfit idea. It’s casual and very easy to pull off for all body types. Just put a black quilted vest over a gray hoodie. Sure, it’s no surprise, but it still looks great.
Heather gray quilted vest over white t-shirt
For a feminine, casual look, you can simply put a gray heather quilted vest over a long-sleeved white T-shirt. It’s a simple outfit idea, but the color combination works wonderfully.
