It’s Sweater Vest Season – Here are 22 I Love

So chic.

Last Updated on October 21, 2021

Sometimes it’s difficult to know whether a trend is coming or going, but it’s fair to say that sweater vests are here to stay.

After blowing up last year, the layering knitwear piece is making a welcome return for AW21 and this time around there’s an abundance of designs, prints and patterns accompanying its comeback.

Whether you’re into cottagecore-inspired scenic knits, printed or plain and simple vests, there’s something for everyone, which only adds to its versatility.

Winter fashion is all about layering pieces to create unique and comfy looks and sometimes I genuinely wonder how I ever managed without the knitted vest.

You can also wear it on its own on warmer days of course, but I can’t imagine there being too many of those in the near future. I hate to be cliché, but Christmas is coming!

So I’ve been searching the shops for the perfect one for my new season wardrobe and when I tell you I found tons, I mean it.

I spend literally every day keeping my eyes on the high street’s newest arrivals and this week, I saved over 20 of my favourite knitted vests from stores like Arket, & Other Stories and Mango and I’m sharing them with you here.
