You know what we love about winter vests? They’re cute AND practical—especially for travel. They’re lightweight so you don’t have to sweat to death in the airport, and, if you buy the right kind, have plenty of pockets for storing iPhones, Chapstick, maybe some tissues, and definitely every manner of item your kids pick up off the ground. These are our picks for the best winter vests for moms.
