While wool jumpers in Winter definitely isn’t a big trend alert, with most of us happily bringing some of our favourite knits out from storage in the last couple weeks, the sweater vest is one new trend that has certainly grabbed our attention.

Yes, it may remind some people of their Grandfathers, but this comfy yet super cool trend has taken a sophisticated turn to add a bit of wool to the most stylish outfits.

You know that a trend is here to stay when some of the biggest style icons right now, including Daisy Edgar-Jones from Normal People and Harry Styles, are fans.

Knit Vest With Ruffles €29.95 

If you STILL need more convincing that a sweater vest is the one thing your wardrobe may be missing this season, then let me tell you that it may just be the perfect piece to transition your Summer wardrobe into Winter!

Providing that well needed extra layer can allow you to layer up your favourite Summer pieces such as dresses and skirts that would otherwise be abandoned until warmer days.

Just throw a vest over a dress, pair with tights and chunky boots and you have the perfect (and extremely trendy) new season look!
