Styling An Oversized Sweater Vest

I am loving the oversized vest trend. So many cute chic ways to style! I knew I had to add one to my wardrobe. And then I found the perfect sweater vest for under $45! This sweater vest has an asymmetric hem which adds style to the drapey, oversized fit. And it comes in four different colors - Beige (the vest I'm rocking), gray, charcoal, and black.

Today on the blog I'll be sharing four easy ways to style this adorable vest. Get ready to be inspired!

For my first look, I layered my sweater vest over a shirt dress. Think of this dress as a long button-up dress shirt. Super easy and effortless to layer under any oversized sweater. I finished off my look with some over the knee boots and threw on a crossbody bag to give my outfit a little shape.

I've linked my exact shirt dress, as well as a couple other styles... all are on sale, so you gotta love that!

For my next look, I layered my sweater vest over a plain white button up dress shirt. Styled with leather leggings and some cute ankle booties, I have an outfit perfect for a night out. I'm wearing my favorite go-to leather leggings, but a killer pair of faux leather would work too. Don't forget a cute clutch - here I'm styling a black patent leather clutch, but a fun pop of color or pattern would also be so cute.

Next, I took a sleeveless dress and layered on the sweater vest. Because this vest is so oversized and loose, it lays effortlessly over the dress... showing the perfect amount of peek-a-boo at the bottom. I styled with black tights and a pair of combat boots for a little edge. Here, I'm holding a leopard print clutch... adding a little unexpected pop to my outfit.

Finally, I'm adding a little laid-back style with jeans and a basic v-neck tee. I love how versatile this look is. I added a baseball cap for a really casual vibe. Comfortable, put together, and ready for any curve balls life throws your way! For this look, trendy kicks are a must! And, once again, I styled with a crossbody to help show my shape.

This vest is just one of the many cute oversized vest options out there. Super versatile and at a great price point for a fun trendy addition to your wardrobe. I've linked my identical vest as well as some others that are equally adorable. Happy styling!
