Fall’s Best Denim Vests Under $90

Layering isn’t about piling on long sleeves. For a little insider tip, consider a vest. As a middle layer, it adds some major interest to your outfit without creating added bulk between your sweater and your coat. Plus, keeping your core warm is what you really need when the temps start to drop (and trust us, in SoCal, it happens once in a while).

We’ve got traditional truckers, DIY looks (without the actual DIY), bleached-out denim and even a drape-front option for those looking to soften the look. Whatever your style, be it preppy or punk, something as classic as the denim vest transcends trends and deserves a spot in your arsenal. Trust us, you won’t want to take it off.

Thakoon Teams with Clarks Botanicals for a High Fashion Gift With Purchase

Thakoon for Clark€™s Botanicals Travel Kit

We say blame it on Jason Wu, because brands are stepping up their gift with purchase offerings. After Wu’s collab with Lancome and its soft, dove-grey clutch threw down the gauntlet, we saw Thakoon took the challenge and dare we say…won? The designer’s colalb with cult-fave brand Clark’s Botanicals includes some of the brand’s most beloved products as well as a zippered pouch that can only be described as the lovechild of Astroturf and holiday tinsel. A makeup bag that we’d actually use as a clutch? Let’s just say the next designer to give us a gift has to step up.

The flimsy plastic pouches that normally come with a beauty buy are generally cheap, throwaway things that take up room in your closet and are a general missed opportunity for bonafide branding, but we’d be proud to carry this glam, shaggy pouch.

Thakoon chose his favorite Clark’s Botanicals products to include in the pouch, so for $65, you’ll be getting some of the brand’s most beloved items as well as a limited-edition gold-fleck lip balm that’s perfect for holiday soir©es. The travel-friendly items include a refreshing facial mist amped up with Swiss apple stem cells, as well as deluxe-sized samples of Smoothing Marine Cream and Clark’s Deep Moisture Mask, giving you the perfect pint-sized arsenal of skincare goods to get you looking your best.

Available at Clark’s Botanicals.
