Walking around the glamorous and chic corners of Bon Marché, I came across two mannequins styled with knitted sweater vests, while salesperson was dressing, at the exact moment that I was passing by, another mannequin with a cream knitted vest over a striped shirt.
There is no doubt that the sleeveless knit sweater trend, also called the “grandpa trend” is taking over this fall. Prada, Gucci, Dior, and Marc Jacobs all presented this chic knit in their collections and Instagram is currently filled with styling ideas: from layering it over a white shirt or worn on its own as a top with jeans, or a pleated mini skirt. Whether you choose a vest with a crewneck or a v-neck, the most popular way to style this autumn trend is to pair a knitted vest alongside a white button-down shirt, but it can totally work with a long-sleeve midi dress, a blouse and leather trousers, or many other combinations. Here is some styling inspiration on how to wear the sweater vest, as well as a few shopping links.
