If you’re feeling more daring and want to opt for a more distinct outfit then this pattern might be your perfect match! This argyle patterned sweater definitely gives off ‘grandad’ vibes, but isn’t that the whole point of the sweater vest! The pattern can be found in a range of colours on almost every website at the minute, especially Shein which has at least 100 options for you to choose from. This vest can be found on the website for £16.50!

To style this vest into the perfect outfit, you can’t go wrong with a pair of light-washed baggy jeans, white chunky trainers and a white collared shirt. If you’re feeling even more adventurous, don’t layer the vest onto any other shirt. The loose fitted vest look is something everyone will try to pull off!

If you’re the type of person who prefers to wear oversized, loose fitting clothes 24/7, then these types of sweater vests need a place in your wardrobe! This oversized knitted vest from Zara would make the ultimate brunch outfit (since we have a 10pm curfew). This knitted vest is priced at £25.99!

Paired over the top of an exceptionally large collared shirt in a shade that is complementary to the sweater vest, this look will look absolutely chic! Strap on a pair of black high heals, add some silver jewellery and you’re all set to go!

Lastly, if you’re wanting to find a stylish sweater vest and looks professional enough to wear to your 9-5 job, then you can’t go wrong with the Houndstooth print. This popular pattern is ideal for the A/W months ahead, and can be styled with almost anything. This sweater vest can be found on the website for £34 (before any sales!)

TOP TIP: keep the outfit monochromatic! The print is already loud enough itself, any extra colours and prints will just clash. Again, a simple white shirt and leather or PU leather trousers will guarantee you to be the most trendy in the office!
