Meet the sweater vest, your new favourite layering piece for autumn
Layering made simple
The sweater vest has been a key autumn trend for the past couple of years, and the sleeveless knit looks set to be bigger than ever in 2022. It’s the perfect between-seasons layer, giving summer dresses longevity and breathing fresh life into tried and trusted wardrobe basics. More versatile than you’d imagine, the knitted vest can be worn over everything from printed dresses to statement-collar blouses and T-shirts, as well as under blazers and – weather permitting – on its own with wide-leg trousers. Try layering a sleeveless jumper in an on-trend Fair Isle design over a denim midi dress and cinch at the waist with a belt for a look that’s as stylish as it is practical.
