You can be forgiven for not utilising the sweater vest to the max! For most of us, sweater vests bring up images of stuffy old professors, not elegant women. So, why has this item become such a popular fashion trend of late? Well, the sweater vest is now far from a frumpy option, but rather an exciting addition to the range of items women can wear to keep warm and look cool while doing so. But where does it come in handy? That's the joy of it, the sweater vest is the perfect piece for layering. With that in mind, we have a range of different colours, styles and patterns for sweater vests available at NA-KD so you can choose one that will match all those items you need to layer up during a cold snap.
Synonymous with being uncool, the sweater vest is likely to be your favourite when it comes to getting warm in an everyday setting. What's great about it is that no matter what colour you choose, it can be matched up to something. When out casually, it can be thrown on over an oversized tee, a long-sleeved shirt, or even just worn on its own. Team this with a pair of slouchy jeans, a faux leather midi skirt or some wide-leg trousers and you're going to look warm and cosy while still maintaining that relaxed look you're going for. You need to choose the perfect neckline too - a roll neck just adds a touch of cosiness to the whole thing and is perfect for relaxing and lounging around the house.
As this item of clothing is so inextricably linked with professors, you will have no trouble getting away with wearing one at work. A lower neckline is the perfect option if you plan on pairing this with a long white shirt. Choosing this layering option, you will be able to get away with a range of different coloured vests too. Pair this with your pencil skirt or suit trousers and you'll look warm but also work-ready. A V-neck sweater vest can also work in this setting, though you will need to be careful not to look too much like a schoolgirl! With this type of neckline, steer clear of blues and greys if you plan on wearing a plain shirt underneath. As you choose your vest, remember, these are wool so will need careful cleaning care when it comes to washing.
