A vector field is a section of a vector bundle.
More specifically, a vector field is a tangent vector field which is a section of a tangent bundle. Hence this is a function which picks a tangent vector at each point of a manifold, such that this assignment is suitbably differentiable.
Equivalently this is a rank $(1,0)$-tensor field on $X$
For instance section 1.3 and 1.4 of
