Even though I vowed to cut down on screen time, Instagram just happens to be a really great source for outfit inspiration. And as we enter the new season, I can’t help but keep tabs on what all the cool kids are wearing. From lug sole boots to oversized blazers, fall’s biggest trends are an assortment of understated-yet-stylish separates. But, perhaps, the most unpredictable trend among the fashion crowd is the revival of the sweater vest.

According to Lyst, “knitted vest tops are the fastest rising product” in the knitwear category, “growing by 102% over the past few weeks.” In The Know’s style contributor and Bravo star, Paige Desorbo, recently weighed on the trend: “I know what you’re thinking, ‘Sweater vests are so country club dad.’ But I promise it’s one of the chicest trends for fall, and you’re going to want a few different styles.”

While we can’t help but think of our grandpa’s closet, every fashion person knows that everything old is new again. Knitted vests took over the A/W’ 20 runways of Christian Dior and Prada. Ahead, we scoured the web to find the chicest options. Style it over a button-down with your favorite pair of denim or pair it with a turtleneck for extra warmth. Scroll on!
