The Knitted Vest Saving You From The Cold

The so called granddad trend has gained its cool, adding a vintage flair to a modern look.


It seems we may be borrowing our granddads clothes from now on as his knitted vests have become an essential piece in our closets for layering this Winter.

The knitted vest has been an accessory to tailor a range of varied looks, from preppy and formal to street style and vintage, this popular piece has been a must addition to layering this winter season.

Worn by men and women this trend seems to be the most versatile yet amongst the fashion fans.


Whether it’s a simple neutral tone, a pop of colour or a jazzy print, the younger generation have snapped up the trend along with many fashion bloggers and celebrities such as Bella Hadid.

Now that the trend has taken off, new variations of the knitted vest have come to play including cropped versions and deconstructed form fitting designs.

Below are 6 tips to wear the newly revived trend

1) Go formal and wear over a sharp shirt paired with a good pair of trousers. Dress it down with a pair of sneakers to add a sporty flair.

2) Add a twist to the formal and wear it over an oversized blazer

3) If you’re not feeling the cold, wear it on its own, paired with jeans. Changing the feel of the look by whether the knit is fitted or loose.

4) To create the vintage feel choose a printed knit or if you’re more into minimalism stick to the neutrals

5) There is beauty in simplicity. Pair your vest with a simple tee matched with a dainty necklace
