The return of the knitted vest!

Move over chunky cardigan, it is all about the knitted vest this season! The golfer vest came into my radar last year, it started making an appearance in various runways and editors kept wearing them for fashion week- of course I was convinced this trend wasn’t for me. I am petite and dress mainly with solid colours, I couldn’t see myself pulling off the contrasting diamonds until I was scrolling through Depop on a rainy Sunday night (a very dangerous hobby I know) that I bumped into a navy, sky blue and peach beauty. It was only £8. I bought it immediately. 

If you’ve seen the controversial IGTV Video where I styled it you will know I absolutely adore it and even though it was highly controversial, feel as though I managed to Toff-it-up for a night out. It is fun, easy to wear and makes me feel like Charlotte York in season 3 of SATC (yes, I am undoubtedly a Charlotte in a world full of Carries)- do I have to elaborate further?

The knitted vest is such a fabulous piece for autumn- it will keep you toasty whilst prancing around and it is also the perfect knitted piece to wear indoors without getting overly hot! 

The high street is full of options for different tastes and wallets but also remember that charity shops are a great place to start for this particular trend.

For maximum effect pair it with a white oversized collared shirt, it will give it a little edge but will still be appropriate for a smart outing or an important zoom call!

Lots of love,
