Sure, you can wear a sweatervest with a formal buttondown shirt and casual jeans, but you can also invert the fashion formula for an outfit that’s more visually interesting. Simply pair your sweatervest with a foundation of a casual tee and a pair of formal trousers. Here’s how to get the rest of the sweatervest look:
1. Start with a simple tee and a pair of wide leg trouser pants.
2. Layer on a cropped sweatervest over the t-shirt. Note how the texture of the sweatervest contrasts with the smooth knit of the tee.
3. Throw on a long tailored blazer. Note how the shawl collar of the vest looks so rich from underneath the blazer.
4. Accessorize with a bright pair of pumps and a casually chic tote. Don’t you love how the pumps visually pop?
