Back-to-School with Kohl's: The Sweater Vest

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kohl’s. All opinions are 100% mine.

Pair a sweater vest with a basic top, skinny jeans and ankle boots for a cool back-to-school outfit from Kohl's.

With the first day of Fall just around the corner, I knew I wanted to style a look featuring something cozy and warm for my second back-to-school outfit with Kohl's. This season I'm seeing sweater vests everywhere, and I was beyond excited to find the trend going strong at my Kohl's store -- I immediately tried on this Mudd Colorblock Long Vest and fell in love. It's so soft and feels like you're wrapping yourself up in a blanket! But, it's actually a lot easier to wear than say, a poncho or blanket scarf. Don't get me wrong, I love a good ruana or oversized scarf, but sometimes I feel like I can't move around when I'm wearing one. With this vest, my arms are free, yet I still get the drama of a bold layering piece. It's the best of both worlds!

Anti-Tour Athleisure: Rihanna's Oversized Crewneck, Baseball Cap and Jogger Look for Less

Rihanna Look for Less

En route to the MTV VMAs to receive her Video Vanguard Award, and steal the show, Rihanna wore the perfect travel outfit. In head-to-toe designer, Riri wore an oversized sweatshirt from her European Anti-Tour merchandise (some similar pieces available here), black joggers and sneakers, and an embroidered baseball cap. In her hand are a pair of vintage round-lens sunglasses which she carried along with a black leather shopper tote and her rolling Louis Vuitton carry-on. Her shoes and joggers are from her own collab, FENTY x PUMA, which is set to drop its latest collection on September 6th. I've found a similar sneaker silhouette in Puma 'Fierce' Core Casual Shoes ($89.99), which blends seamlessly with the complete Rihanna athleisure aesthetic. Read on to shop my finds including her exact baseball cap for $12.99!
