One of the many things we can thank Alessandro Michele of Gucci for is the return of the sweater vest.
Gucci singlehandedly brought about the rise of “grandma” chic which entire genre of fashion. This new genre embraces clever eccentricity with a lived-in vintage feel.
As every fashion person knows, everything old is new again and this season it’s all about the sweater vest.
Thanks to intricate patterns and oversized silhouettes, these luxe sweater vests feel especially modern yet vintage at the same time.
The vests satisfy a trifecta of trends. Think winterizing a Cottagecore look or a sleek uptown vibe when worn with a button-down shirt. Rock it like an off duty model with nothing underneath or like a minimalist when styled in neutral hues with a turtleneck. Honestly you can toss them over almost anything and it works! They add serious style cred to non-binary looks and offer up a bevy of silhouettes from oversized and loose to cropped and boxy or fabulously fitted.
If you’re considering adding one to your wardrobe arsenal, there are plenty of unique one-of-a-kind versions to be found in vintage shops, interesting designer interpretations and fun high street takes on the trend.
