sweater vest on trend for Spring 2021

the countdown is on for Easter, coinciding with the last day of Passover on April 4th. T minus 6 in case you’re counting. it is just mind-boggling how quickly February and March flew by. at the rate we’re going, summer will be over in a nano-second. am i right?! so let’s make hay while the sun shines, and today, the sun is shining even though the temps are on the brisk side. no matter, that’s when a sweater vest that’s on-trend for Spring 2021 comes in handy. it’s the perfect third layer for this time of year.

this past weekend also went by in a blur. one of my kiddos recently moved to a new townhouse, so it was time for a road trip for a peek at his new digs. even with some key furniture pieces missing, his place is adorable. artwork is hung, two comfy chairs are in place, and there’s a mattress to sleep on. what more could you ask for at 32? and he took my advice and ordered the opens in a new windowAlways Pan. yesterday, he was steaming dumplings in the opens in a new windowSpruce Steamer that you can order separately. and i was informed that eggs are a breeze to make in the opens in a new windowAlways Pan and even easier to clean up. ha! mother’s do know a thing or two. enjoy!

sweater vest on trend for Spring 2021

spring and fall are the best times of year yet the worst times of the year due to fluctuating temperatures. that’s when a third layer comes in handy. opens in a new windowdenim jackets, opens in a new windowutility jackets, or opens in a new windowraincoats are always good to have on hand. but i love changing things up style-wise, and i know you do too. this Spring, nothing beats a sweater vest for a chic alternative to a jacket. a week or two ago, i shared a opens in a new windowslim-fit sweater vest from opens in a new windowJ.Crew. this time around, the sweater vest from opens in a new windowBanana Republic (sold out, similar opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new windowhere, and opens in a new windowhere) is longer and leaner. once summer rolls into town, it can be worn solo over a pair of bermudas or cigarette pants. wear it now and wear it later. now that’s bang for your buck.

today, i slipped this lightweight sweater vest from opens in a new windowBanana Republic (sold out, similar opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new windowhere, and opens in a new windowhere) over straight-leg jeans (old, similar opens in a new windowhere and opens in a new windowhere). the color scheme was kept neutral, so i decided a polka dot shirt (old, similar opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new windowhere, and opens in a new windowhere) would add a little personality. spectator flats from opens in a new windowJ.Crew (old, similar opens in a new windowhere and here) and my new favorite opens in a new windowhandbag from opens in a new windowCoach are the finishing touches. all-in-all this ootd is perfect for a chilly spring day.

    I love the way you accessorized this look. You have a gift. I’m not sure about wearing a pullover sweater vest for me. I’ve tried but they just never feel comfortable. I’m always adjusting the shirt. I can wear an open one just fine,

    That sweater vest is a treasure – can be worn in so many ways. You look pretty head to toe in this charming outfit. Particularly love how you chose neutrals, a polka dot and spectator flats. Pinned it.

    Proof positive, that classic styles last.
    I picked up two of these long sweater vests on sale well over a year ago. One, (Lord and Taylor) in light cool grey, fine merino, with a mock neck and the second is a Joe Fresh, a dusty coral with a v-neck, in a fine weight Acrylic. Both are mid thigh with nice long side slits. They are soooo versatile. I went with airy fine weight yarns so they drape and flow beautifully 💝. Your readers will love you forever if they invest in these, from either end of the price scale🌷

    Once again, you’ve knocked it out of the fashion ballpark. Love the entire outfit. Every piece coordinates, but not too matchy matchy! That’s a joke in my family because one time I said I don’t do matchy matchy clothes. My complete family looked at me like I was out of my mind.

    • that’s cute – no matchy matchy clothes. i so appreciate you stopping by.

    Hi Beth. I love how you incorporated so many items from your closet in this outfit that highlights the new vest. I’m working on creating a closet of classics that I can do the same. I’m eyeing a polka dot ‘perfect shirt’ right now at favorite website. I enjoy all of your posts!

    • once you have the classic wardrobe staples on hand it’s easy to put an outfit together.
      good luck!
