Must-Have Coats and Vests Show Stylish Outerwear Need Not Break the Bank

End your search for transitional outerwear right here.

The sleeveless style is great for those days and nights of in-between weather. While temperatures have not dropped enough for a coat just yet, a long sleeveless vest lends a chic finishing touch to jeans and a tank. When the colder weather rolls in, pair your coat with a turtleneck or chunky sweater; when winter finally arrives to stay, layer it inside your coat for extra warmth. This look can be worn seamlessly year-round; it’s sophisticated enough for the office yet cool enough to wear off-duty with a dress and sneakers.

Don’t worry about breaking the bank, either. Opt for styles from J.Crew, Forever 21 and Nordstrom for prices ranging from $27 to $250. The stylish options are endless: front flap pockets, button-front closures, notched collars and a variety of lengths and textures. Looking for a nice investment piece? You can’t go wrong with Alexander Wang’s wool and satin tuxedo vest and its structured silhouette (a flattering fit for every body style) and satin lapels.

We’ve put together a roster of must-have sleeveless vests, coats and gilets for every occasion, so happy shopping!
