TREND ALERT:

SWEATER VEST OUTFITS

Wondering how to style a sweater vest? Try this layered look and nail the key fall/winter trend

Try the sweater vest trend

The sweater vest trend emerged last year, and sleeveless knits look set to be bigger than ever for fall 2021. It's the perfect in-between-seasons layer, giving summer dresses longevity and breathing fresh life into tried and trusted capsule 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 pants. 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 chunky platform boots for an on-trend look that's as pretty as it is practical.
