February 9, 2021 8 Best Ways to Style a Sweater Vest

I would like to put it on record that sweater vests get a bad rap. Maybe it’s because we associate them with our dads and grandpas. However, I keep noting these days how stylish they can be, and in so many different ways. Not convinced? For your consideration, I present what I think are the 8 best ways to style a sweater vest.

1. With Your Favorite Tee

So simple, yet so cool.

2. Over a Dress

I’ve seen this look done with short and long dresses. The result is consistently good.

3. Buttoned Loosely

I’m on the hunt for one with buttons now! The half-buttoned styling here makes it more casual.

4. With an Untucked Button-Up

Let your button-up frame the whole vest.

5. As a Top

I don’t know why I never thought to wear it alone as a top!
