In this last installment of Fall & Winter essentials, lets visit the last sweater that’s most commonly overlooked and less likely favored.
Now when I mention sweater vests, what comes to mind? Most of you I would tend to think envision those ugly argyle sweater vests, that nobody likes unless if it’s for an ugly sweater party.
I mean I get it. A sweater vest is appreciated by few and hated by many. Mainly because it’s not as trendy, people really have a misunderstanding about sweater vests because they really don’t know how to wear it.
Yes, the argyle patterns looks unattractive, yes they give off a preppy vibe, and are very bland. But just like everything else sweater vests have different styles, you just have to be willing to find em to find the right one for you. Sweater vests add a touch of formality to whatever outfit you have on. Think of it like a 3 piece suit, it gives that extra polish.
Just like turtlenecks you can dress it up and down just as easily. Throw on a simple dress shirt and roll up the sleeves, to show that you mean business, it also shows that casual vibe even if you elect to wear it jeans or trousers.
One thing I’ve surmised is that layering shows a level of effort in dressing better. Sweater vests aren’t for the faint of heart. It’s either you rock with it or you don’t. Even if you’re on the fence hopefully this gives you an idea of how to wear them one day.
Now that you have an idea of what sweaters you can add to your arsenal, take some to look for those styles and patterns that fit your look.
