Layer up this autumn with a knitted vest
The new wardrobe heroes
The sweater vest trend emerged last year, and sleeveless knits look set to be bigger than ever for autumn 2021. It’s the perfect in-between-seasons layer, giving summer dresses longevity and breathing fresh life into tried and trusted wardrobe basics. More versatile than you’d imagine, knitted vests can be worn atop everything from printed dresses and statement-collar blouses to T-shirts and button-down shirts, underneath blazers and, weather allowing, they look equally cool on their own teamed with wide-leg trousers. Try layering a navy sleeveless vest over a floral midi dress, cinch at the waist with a belt and finish with a chunky chain and platform boots for an on-trend look that’s as pretty as it is practical.
