Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and Chic This vest is cool, literally! Not heavy like some vests, it adds a cute layer without the bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great layering piece I'm really happy with this vest! I ordered a small and wish I had been able to order an x-small for a slightly more fitted look but it still fits well. It's a great piece that can easily be layered under a jacket during the winter or over a dress in the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great vest! This vest is a great piece, makes ordinary jeans and a tee shirt look very pulled together. It is very high quality fabric and made well with lots of style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable + versatile vest This vest fits fantastic, and has an adjustable drawstring to help it become slouchy or fitted. Can be worn over anything. A total steal at the sale price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad that it worked out for me I know this vest doesn't match everyone's taste but I personally love it. I plan on wearing it with a gray maxi dress. i love mixing boyish with feminine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best vest Got this on impulse (on sale) and couldn’t be happier. Didn’t think I was a vest person, but sure am now. The vest vibe just feels cool and keeps you un-bulky on in-between days over linen or cotton Ts. Love the soft, texture-y fabric, snap pockets and where it hits just right on the back. I’m usually size 6, 36B and S fits perfectly, can zip or not but I love it open. Can’t wait for really cooler weather to wear it more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect addition to any outfit I love this vest!! It is the best addition to any summer/fall outfit. I will definitely be wearing this vest year around. I am so happy that I bought it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what I expected... but in a good way! I was expecting a lighter weight vest but was pleasantly surprised at the weight of it when it arrived. I had imagined wearing it in the summer but its more of a fall piece, with the weight and the color. For reference I am 5'2" and normally wear an XS at Madewell. I ordered the XS and it is a bit big in chest, but I actually prefer it like this so that I can layer sweaters, etc in the fall & winter. Definitely recommend adding this piece to your wardrobe!
