Of all the autumn trends, the knitted-vest trend is easily the most prolific of the season. Although it started doing the rounds last winter, for 2021, it's being embraced on a scale previously unseen.
Having shaken off the majority of its grandad and Chandler Bing references, the knitted vest is perhaps the most fashion-forward investment you can make this autumn, and you need only consult the autumn/winter 2021 runways for proof.
Brands such as Versace and Etro gave the knitted-vest trend a whirl, layering it over everything from shirting and mesh long-sleeve tops to dresses or, simply, styling it on its own. Not only that, Instagram is already topped up with real-life styling inspiration that makes the somewhat divisive trend more wearable and less daunting.
