HOW TO STYLE A SWEATER VEST!

Hello everyone,


Grab your sweater vest from your closet because today we're styling one of the IT trends happening this season. If you don't own one yet, cut the sleeves of your favorite winter sweater and there you go! hahaha Just kidding! Don't do that, especially if it's your most favorite item. There are plenty of stores that offer really cute sweater vests, at reasonable prices. So, while you find YOURS, I'll leave you with some ideas on ways to wear it.  

What I really love about this trend is that a sweater vest can literally be worn during any season. In winter, as a cozy layering piece, and in the summer over a tee or even a dress. So many excuses to wear it over and over! And each time you can create a very unique look. That's the reason why in today's post I wanted to create NOT ONE but TWO looks. 

Also, for me, sweater vests take me wayyyy back to my childhood. I used to wear one during the cold winters in Bulgaria. I clearly remember having a beige wool sweater vest that I even wore on top of my pajamas to keep me extra warm. Yep, I had style from the very beginning!!! 😂 Do you have any similar memories or am I the only one?

So how would you style a sweater vest? Don't forget, if you aren't a fan of the knit vest itself, there is the option of a puffer vest which is a cool, outerwear choice to add instead of a heavy jacket. 






As you can see in the photos, I tried to go for two different styles. One on the more casual side and one that deserves a cocktail in hand. hahaha! Cast your vote...which one do you love more? The casual or dressy!

I identify with the dressy option more because 1. I love going-out (dressing-up) and 2. I love a sexy pair of over the knee boots (even if walking/dancing in them for hours can get tricky). And 3. I find that a knit sweater over a shirt dress looks most definitely STYLISH

If you have an oversized sweater vest, it would look awesome as a layering piece over your button-down dress. This outfit wouldn't be the same without the vest. I like the extra touch of detail. How about you? It's the kind of pairing I would wear again and again. In fact, now that I think about it...I have a green short sleeved dress shirt that I can wear next. Everything else can stay the same.
  

There's also nothing wrong with being a casual, comfy freak. If you love sneakers, jeans and tees, you can still add a sweater vest to the equation. In fact this second outfit is especially for you! 

Whether you choose jeans, skirt or shorts as your bottom, if your sweater vest is bigger, I would suggest tucking it in in the front. This will give you more shape and give you a street style kind of vibe. The way I have done with the second look above! 

Here I decided to wear the sweater vest bare without anything else underneath. It just looks good to me with a nice pair of jeans. However, you can always layer it with a turtleneck top or a fun tee. Go with whatever your heart desires on this particular day. Also, be mindful of the weather in your city. That way you'll know if you can wear it as it is or  if it's better to layer.    

Whenever I think of casual I'm always up for adding a cap or a beanie because that's an accessory I'm very fond of. Even more so during the fall and winter. So, I went for a cap and really wanted to add an additional pop of color. But not just any color...yellow (one of the pantone shades of 2021). Have you started wearing the pantone colors of the year? I will make a special post on them, soon!😉
 

Do you like the sweater vest trend? Will you be wearing it this season? If yes, what's your go-to way of styling it? I can't wait to read your comments. As always see you again next Tuesday! 💋

  9. You look very fashionable and attractive modelling both of these outfits in the lovely photos by @artisticspring!
    Adding a pop of cheery (Pantone) yellow to outfits in the year ahead sounds is a great idea!
    If I ever get around to doing a new outfit post on my blog I really love the idea of styling a blouse in a Pantone yellow with a complementary contrasting pair of Shadowline full briefs in Flamingo Pink, and also of styling a red blouse with yellow briefs.
    Adding sweater vests to the OOTDs sounds like a wonderful idea - it gets cold here in the NorthEast U.S. - especially when the wind is blowing.
    I especially love how the black and white sweater vest looks being modelled by you with the very stylish and classy shirt-dress and the the over the knee boots!
    You look gorgeous wearing it!
    Your hair and perfectly applied lipstick look very pretty.
    P.S.: Thank you so much for Following me on my Twitter!
    Wishing you a very fashiontastic, successful, and happy year ahead! xx <3 :D

  62. I'm always up for adding a cap or a beanie because that's an accessory I'm very fond of. Fashion is a popular aesthetic in a certain time and context, especially in clothing and you truly have a good taste of fashion and style selection. I’m a jewelry lover and I’ll definitely try this look with my Diamond Studs. Thanks for sharing this post.
