They’ve taken over TikTok and are a major hit with Gen Z. But are they worth buying? Well, that’s totally up to you.
If you’re wondering what fad I’m referring to, allow me to introduce the sweater vest. Sweater vests are making a huge comeback, and brands at all price points are coming out with their unique takes on the trend. This practical clothing piece is no longer just the cornerstone of your grandpa’s favorite fashion moment; it’s now your style breakthrough! Not only do sweater vests pull your look together instantly and provide just the right amount of warmth, but they’re versatile and come in so many styles and colors: high neck, v neck, crew neck, bold fuchsia pink, and even your grandma’s favorite — a floral motif.
You have infinite options for wearing something as simple as a sweater vest. I love the oversized look styled with a favorite pair of jean shorts, or even a wide-leg pant and some platforms (as I write this, I’m seeing all the outfits in my head). But if you can’t decide how to make this trend your own, just go for something simple like my casual brunch outfit.
Here, I chose a pastel purple. It compliments my skin tone, but I also just love the color. I paired it with a straight-leg jean with some rips to keep it stylish, my favorite wide-brim hat from Coral Boutique and the cutest closed-toe mule. It’s simple and chic, yet effortless.
