This Just In: Sweater Vests Are Cool Again

We’re loving this unexpected layering piece for spring.

With the turn of each season comes a handful of new trends, and while I generally welcome any excuse to add new pieces to cart, there are always a few that raise an eyebrow. Sweater vests are no exception. Though it’s taken me a while to imagine them on anyone other than my darling grandfather, I’m officially a convert. Layer them over a basic white tee or an easy button-down for a polished look without too much-added warmth—the perfect layering tactic for spring. Below are three ideas for how to style.

Simplicity is often the key ingredient in looking chic, and this outfit is no exception. There’s nothing better than great basics, and adding a fun accessory or a pop of color gives some added excitement to the look.

Combining two trends in one, this Fair Isle sweater vest doesn’t need a ton of help to make a killer outfit. Layer it over a basic button-down, add some bold accessories, and you’re good to go.

The silhouette of a drop-waist dress is perfect for a sweater vest, and an edgy boot is the perfect twist to the otherwise ultra-feminine elements of the look. Finish it off with your go-to hoops or a chunky gold earring.
