Summer is over and you already know how to make cooler days much more enjoyable (with ORORO, of course). You’ve decided that you want a heated vest, but still haven’t made up your mind between the Classic Heated Vest and the Quilted Heated Vest. We know it’s not easy; they’re both great options! We’re here to help you decide.

The differences between the Women’s Classic Heated Vest and Quilted Heated Vest

Sometimes choosing the perfect piece for your wardrobe may feel a little like choosing a partner or a job. Why? It’s important that it meets certain criteria that are vital to your daily life. To make your choice easier, we’ve outlined the 6 main differences between these two vests:

1. Casual vs Classy

What’s your style? If you’re more casual, our Classic Heated Vest is the perfect choice. But if you like dressing classy most of the time, then you definitely need to try our Quilted Heated Vest

2. Slim vs Regular Fit

Do you prefer wearing slim clothes or looser ones? Remember that it's all about what makes you feel good. If you’re more into slim fits, the Classic Heated Vest is your choice.

If you’re not sure on which kind of fit suits you best, here’s some recommendations based on your body type:

Here’s a tip: according to “She Defined”, when it comes to choosing the right color palette for you, you must take three aspects into consideration: skin tone, hair color, and eye color. If you want to find out what colors look great on you, find out here.

4. Look

Do you prefer horizontal lines? Or do you like a diamond quilted design? If you voted for horizontal lines, get the classic version. If you’re into diamonds, go ahead with the quilted one!

5. “Puffy” vs Thin

Do you want your vest to feel like a bear hug or do you prefer it thin? If you’re looking for a thinner vest, the Quilted Heated Vest is the right choice for you. Did you know that it’s 50% thinner than our Classic Heated Vest?

Remember, it all depends on what’s important to you. 

6. Weight
