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.

This fall trend isn’t going anywhere, but luckily there are plenty of sweater vests retailing for budget-friendly prices. Below, shop five sweater vests under $30 from Amazon.
