How to Style: Sweater Vests

Posted by Kelsie Nelson on

Sweater vests are a hot trend right now, and for a good reason! Sweater vests add an element of style and flare to every outfit. With the preppy style getting a permanent place in fashion, sweater vests are a staple to the preppy look. You can mix and match this trend with almost any style or vibe, and you will look 10/10 every time! Read on to discover ways that you may choose to incorporate sweater vests into your next outfit, complete with pictures! Shop all sweater vests here.



Classic Statement

One of the easiest ways to style a sweater vest in 2022 is wearing it by itself, as a dress. Oversized sweaters blew up the internet as a mini dress in 2021. Now, you can buy a sweater vest dress at any length! Some like the look of an oversized vest as a dress, and others like the ones that are longer and specifically tailored to wear as a dress. Either way you do it will look classic and trendy. If dresses aren’t your thing, you can also pair a cute vest with a classic blazer for more of a preppy business look! This is my personal favorite for work days because I can throw on the blazer for my meetings, and then take it off and wear it with cute jeans to dinner with friends!

Bright + Bold 

Bold colors are in every style guide you will see this fall. While neutrals still have a part to play, bold colors are the star of the show. Wearing a bright, bold sweater vest with a pair of jeans or a simple skirt will ensure your vest has its moment and fits the colorful aesthetic without going over the top. Another way to rock this trend is by pairing a neutral, classic sweater vest with bright colored, or bold patterned pants. Both options add flare to the standard sweater vest trend while giving you additional ways to pair different sweater vests in your closet!

Finishing Touch 

Maybe you already have a look in mind, but you want to add a little something extra to it. A sweater vest is a great option! For many years, sweater vests have been paired with button-ups for a classic, preppy look, but now we’re taking it to the next level as something to wear over almost everything! In pop culture, we see sweater vests styled over dresses, over turtlenecks (my personal favorite), over t-shirts, and over classic button-ups! This trend allows you to play around with the outfits in your closet and find what works for you!
