Sweater Vests, when I say the word I remember my dad wearing them (still does) never did I imagine we will be embracing Knit Vests with such open arms, only 2020 could have made it possible.
Yes my friends, time has come when the sweater vest is not just your dad or grandpa’s forte but a complete fashion forward trend. It’s got the nod from all the leading designers and has been seen all over the runway for F/W. Even the likes of Zara and H&M have embraced it to the fullest.
I wont lie, styling a knit vest wasn’t as easy for me as it looks here. When I saw this vest online it really caught my eye but when it came I soon realised it made me look like the english cricket team. Which is why I always prefer to belt it and thats now my favourite way to wear it. if you stick till the end of the post I will add a 15 second clip of how this outfit was put together.
I styled this SHEIN vest (now on sale!) with the H&M black Poplin dress (also on sale!) – a summer staple absolutely wonderful to transition into A/W. I am wearing these with my dotted tights also from H&M (also on sale). My boots are from Debenhams and the bag is from a instagram store. All the jewellery is from Lovisa.
There are so many more ways to style the good ol sweater vest – (click on the picture description on below pictures to shop for these vests – there is no revenue in it for me )
If you are looking for a way to style a festive look try this glam knit vest with chunky sequin.
If you are looking for something simple try giving your basic top an upgrade with a superb Knit Vest in its stead
Or just pair a classic high neck knit vest with a printed top to create some drama in your outfit.
There is also the option of going with a fancy little knit vest , and if V neck is not your thing go for a high neck – I know I love this one from Zara.
Lastly don’t be shy with colours, I am already planning to take inspiration from this little outfit with a white shirt, straight jeans and sneakers.
Last but not the least here is a little video I promised of how my knit vest look was styled. If you decide to style it my way tag me on instagram I would love to visit you! Xx
