In the world of fashion, we’ve all come to expect the unexpected, but your old geography teacher’s knitted tank top being this season’s must-have item came as a bit of a surprise to even seasoned fashion devotees.
That’s right: Grandpa’s woolly vest has had a thoroughly fashionable makeover. Prada, Dior, Gucci, everyone who’s anyone sent them down their Autumn/Winter 2021 runway.
Don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it
I’ve always found something quite endearing about a knitted sweater vest and they’ve been a huge hit with some of our bestdressed celebrities. Harry Styles was an early adopter. An unlikely style icon for middle-aged women perhaps, but you have to find inspiration somewhere. But I digress…
Layer over summer dresses
Cosy, warm and an easy item to layer with. Wear yours alone as I’m doing here with Jigsaw’s gorgeous navy knit on these nottoo-hot, not-too-cold autumn days or over your favourite summer dress for a perfect transitional outfit. If you like the idea of one over a white cotton shirt, then head to Next who sell it pre-styled (£40, next.co.uk).
Spoilt for choice
Your options are endless: chunky knits, lightweight cashmere, colourful Fair Isle or understated neutrals. Go for a genuine 1960s/1970s design by trawling your local charity shops, eBay or vintage websites like beyondretro.com. Otherwise the High Street have a huge range.
