We’re Calling Sweater Vests for Fall 2021
We’re missing fall fashion even though summer isn’t quite over yet. The neutrals, plaids, sweater vests, boots and aesthetic pictures of all things rusty and orange are what we missed out on last year. That’s why we’re a little too eager to plan and shop for our fall outfits already. No one needs a recap, but last year’s fall was spent pretty much lounging around in the standard 2020 uniform – sweatshirts and tracks. That makes this season even more important because let’s face it, everybody loves fall. It’s better than the dreary winter spell that won’t seem to end and much awaited after the summer spell.
The Fall/Winter ‘21 runways were full of some experimental trends. Designers really put in their creativity to breakthrough and cater to an audience that had been indoors for a while. We’re seeing sequins and sparkle for daywear, exaggerated fur coats, a parallel color palette and our personal fall favourite – sweater vests, reimagined. There are printed versions, deconstructed pieces, oversized ones and we honestly can’t pick a favourite.
We might just grab one of each to make our everyday style pop a little!
Fall and winter wardrobes usually translate to more neutrals and less colors. This year we’re seeing a (much needed) change to that trend. For instance, the Dolce & Gabbana sweater vest linked below is made from vibrant silk yarn on white and has the house’ popular bright design printed all across the front. This is a real game changer for fall fashion as we hardly see any white’s on our feed anymore. Pair it with beige pants or equally vibrant bottoms, but this single piece is worth investing in. Add a shirt under this but don’t add a layer on top of this as we feel the gorgeous print needs to see and be seen! In complete contrast to this piece, we have a pastel coloured houndstooth weave sweater vest by Balmain. This is a more chic and formal piece with an elegant embellished logo patch. The kind of piece you can style with skirts, pants and can just as easily be worn in the evenings as in the day. We love the oversized sleeve details too.

Gucci has nailed the preppy look time and again with their retro inspired pieces and tailored silhouettes. We’ve chosen an argyle-patterned sweater vest from the house that’s super chic. It’s made from wool blend woven with lamé threads and features an oversized silk collar that adds that hint of glamour. The waist is fitted and gives a classic look which we’re loving! If your personal style is more artsy and abstract, we’ve also featured below a Missoni vest that has the signature multi-coloured pattern. The design has a high-neck and great for adding a vibrant shirt or coat for layering. It’s an easy-to-transition piece from day to night. Add some knee-length boots and you’ve got yourself a winner. Fall fashion is a little bit of everything: cosy, fun, controlled and tailored. You can play around with these styles and give them a touch of your own personal style.
