By  Emily Konatella

LAST UPDATED - December 15, 2022

Seemingly overnight, the humble sweater vest went from being frumpy and unfashionable to being one of the hottest fashion trends of the season.

But unlike the school uniform vests you wore as a kid, today's sweater vests are stylish, sophisticated, and surprisingly flattering. Thanks to their sleeveless— and often oversized— silhouette, they're incredibly versatile too. Layer them under jackets to keep from overheating, over turtlenecks and button-ups, or solo on a warm spring day.

So to help you find the perfect one for your wardrobe, we've rounded up twenty of the most stylish sweater vests for women of the season. From cropped turtlenecks to cozy cashmere to chunky cable knits, there's a vest for every shape, size, and personal taste.
