I’m partnering with Nordstrom again to bring you three plus size faux leather puffer vest outfits.

As you well know by now, I am low key obsessed with Nordstrom.

Trend Alert: Faux Leather Puffer Vests

A new trend for fall 2021!  The faux leather puffer vest

I am seeing these vests everywhere!

And despite my love of vests, I wasn’t completely sold at first.

But I began to think of ways to style them and the next thing you know, I’m totally smitten!

As you can see, these looks are pretty much the same with a few changes in the accessories.  

They all share the same base: a camel faux leather puffer vest, an oatmeal sweater, black skinny jeans, and cognac suede ankle booties.

They also share the same jewelry.  I kept things classic with a gold Michael Kors watch and gold hammered hoop earrings.

And of course, I threw in a lipstick suggestion.  I love that dark vampy lips à la the grunge-era are trending [again]!

I went for a very deep cool-toned burgundy, “Drop Dead Red” by Too Faced

I chose a matte liquid lipstick because I struggle to wear dark colors unless they’re transfer-proof.

I’m not sure if it’s just me or if others struggle with this, but I end up with lipstick on my teeth guaranteed.

The point being, if you prefer a satin finish in a bullet style, check out YSL’s “Prune Power.”

Look 1 Details 

For the first outfit idea, the variable accessories are the oatmeal beanie with faux-fur pom, black square sunglasses, and a leopard crossbody bag.

As you can see, I love adding in the leopard print to these looks to tie together the black and tan. 

Is that necessary?  No. 

But, I do think it really adds something.

In the second outfit, I swapped the oatmeal beanie for a cheetah trucker hat.  So cute!

And because I typically don’t like to be repetitive with animal prints, I traded the calf-hair leopard camera bag for a YSL Lou camera bag with gold hardware.

  1. Ooh press add to cart. Lol. If caramel isn’t my best color would you style the black puffer the same way even with black pants?

  2. I love these looks! I love the camera bag in look #1. I notice that the sweater comes in a shade that would match the faux leather vest. What would you think of a monochrome look over black? I was thinking that could be another option.

  3. I am glad to see they are not moving away from plus size. I was in a store recently and was told that “those sizes” are not in their target market and they wouldn’t be carrying them any more.
