Welcome Back, Sweater Vests!
You heard it here first: Sweater vests are making a comeback. One of the most neglected garments of the 21st century is here to stay! I’m not talking about the popular open-front knits that we frequently see. I mean the ones that vaguely remind you of your school uniform, your grandma’s homemade presents or a pleated-khaki-wearing golfer:

All right, it’s possible these are making a comeback only in my closet. But I have a sense that other rational women will soon join me once they realize what they’ve been missing all these years.
Want to know what I hate? When I put on my coat over winter layers and my arms feel like they’re being squeezed to the point of numbness. But toss on a light cashmere vest and—ahhh!—unnecessary bulk avoided. Also, I rely on button-downs as my uniform: crisp oxfords for the work week, sheer drape-y blouses for nights out. Unfortunately, I’m too lazy to iron anything, and supposedly there are places that deem it inappropriate to wear transparent, bra-revealing tops in public. So what can you do? Throw on your sweater vest à la Cher Horowitz and your problems are solved: wrinkles are covered, bra hidden.
Not to mention: It’s totally a sleeveless sweater. Amazing!
