As if the past year wasn’t already full enough of surprises, somewhere along the way, sweater vests became cool. Actually, they became more than cool-- sweater vests have been gradually rising up to official ‘trend’ status since last fall. Available in tons of different colors and patterns, this new trend is the comfiest way to add some spice to your outfit. Read on to find out how to wear a sweater vest for any occasion this spring!


Casual Day Out: With your Boyfriend Jeans

Going shopping? Meeting friends for lunch? Take your trustworthy jeans-and-tee-shirt combo to a new level by adding a sweater vest on top. For cooler temperatures, opt for a long sleeve or mini turtleneck. On sunnier days, short sleeves will do. With the ability to mix-and-match the undershirt and sweater vest colors, your new go-to look gives you endless options. Keep things comfy with a pair of white sneakers, and you’re all set.


Coffee Date: With a White Button-Down

Score major points on elegance when you combine a crisp, oversized white button down with a sweater vest. Look sleek when you combine this look with leather leggings and a pair of booties, or show off your fashion-forward side with straight leg pants and a sneaker.


Meeting for Drinks: With All Black 

While everyone loves an all-black look, spring is the perfect time to add in a pop of color and sweater vests have made this easier than ever. Simply take your favorite black jeans and black boots, and throw a sweater vest over top. Add a black leather blazer if it’s on the chillier side, and accessorize with chunky gold earrings!


Out to Dinner: With a Midi Skirt

Be comfortable and look fantastic when you pair a flowy, silk midi skirt with a soft, oversized sweater vest. A favorite combination on the SS21 runways, this look is sure to make you turn heads. Go monochromatic for a minimalistic look, while the ability to combine bold colors or prints gives you the opportunity to stand out. Complete the look with a low heel and a cropped jacket if it’s cold, and voila! Chic has never been so effortless.
