If you haven’t noticed, sweater vests are having a moment. And while the term “sweater vest” might make you think of your old school uniform or something only your grandfather (or Chandler Bing) wears, the knit style has gotten a modern update over the last season or two.
The sweater vests trending today are oversized (sometimes enough so to pass as a tunic or dress) and worn over a button-up shirt. However, regardless of how you style it, the end result has an effortlessly cool, slightly academic vibe.
Many sweater vests out there are plain enough to make them extremely wearable. Pair your favorite vest with a turtleneck tee and mini-skirt for a fun daytime look, or wear it with leather leggings and a collared shirt for an evening out on the town.
1. Dokotoo Sweater Vest, $23.99
This sweater vest has great cable-knit accents and flattering exaggerated shoulders. While this style comes in various colors, this deep green hue is so fresh for fall.
2. HOTAPEI Sweater Vest, $29.98
This sweater vest is on the longer side and can potentially pass for a loose tunic with the right styling. This on-trend vest features a ribbed V-neck and ribbed hem, too.
You can never go wrong with a classic houndstooth pattern! This oversized cream-and-black sweater vest is the perfect piece to add to an otherwise simple outfit that could use some pattern play.
4. Cowasto Women’s Oversized V Neck Knit Vest, $27.99
This basic sweater vest has a vintage feel to it, but also a fun shape thanks to its side splits. Plus, this style is super soft and can help keep you cozy all season long.
5. UANEO Round Neck Knit Sweater Vest, $22.99
If you don’t love a V-neck cut, this round-neckline sweater vest might be right up your alley. This style is machine-wash-friendly and has ribbing at the neckline, shoulders and hem.
