The texture of leather has the magical ability to take us to places and decades we will never go without a time machine. It blends with any outfit effortlessly, making it look instantly retro sophisticated. Leather vests have been seeing a huge comeback in the past year, and the trend has no ‘season’. I am in love with the casual, camel colored ones with soft, suede texture – these are incredibly easy to incorporate into your winter wardrobe and make a statement without being fussy. Wear them over flannel or denim button downs, peasant blouses, and knits. You’ll find it difficult to make a bad combination.

This vest by Ryan Michael is the epitome of perfection. It is softer than suede or any other leather I have ever felt in my life while being incredibly lightweight. It moves with you without being bulky and adds just the right amount of warmth. Details always count, and this versatile piece does not disappoint. I love the zigzag stitching, distressed seams and front tie closure!

The AWESOME news is that you can WIN this very vest by Ryan Michael worth $385! Check out the details at the bottom!
