As it goes from warm 70-degree weather to cool 40s, getting dressed has become a daunting task. It’s cool but not floor-length-puffer-coat cool, and it's warm but not light-jacket-warm. So, I’ve recently tasked myself with finding an alternative that provides the same cozy embrace of my duvet, like a puffer coat, and lightness and versatility of my favorite sweatshirt, all without compromising style. The conclusion I came to was buying a puffer vest — more specifically, Banana Republic Factory’s Vegan Leather Puffer Vest. Every time I wear it, I get so many compliments because its soft and smooth faux leather makes it different from your everyday puffer vest. And I’m telling everyone who stops me to inquire about it to go and buy their own now while it’s on rare sale for 65 percent off.
The puffer vest comes in a warm brown color and sizes XXS through XXL. It features a funnel neck and sleeveless design, spacious front welt pockets that are perfect for holding the essentials, and a zippered front closure for easy on and off. The hem of the jacket falls high at the hip, snugly fits close to the body without being tight, and is fully lined for extra insulation.

This faux leather vest has quickly become a non-negotiable for my fall and winter wardrobe. It's the perfect fusion of a classic style with modern detailing that takes it to the next level. The faux leather not only lends a fresh, elevated twist to the staple transitional piece, but it’s also incredibly high-quality with sturdy hardware and a substantial weight, providing enough warmth to withstand pretty cold temperatures.
I also usually struggle with the pockets of puffer vests being too shallow with all of the extra material, although these are deep enough to accommodate my phone, keys, and wallet. But what I adore most is the rich color and buttery-soft faux leather — it instantly elevates a basic outfit and offers so much versatility. I've been styling the puffy zip-up over sweatshirts and long-sleeve tees with jeans and Chelsea boots for casual wear or loafers for a polished look.
