Fall Trend: The Sweater Vest

Happy Monday! Guess what? It’s the Madewell Insider sale this week and I’ve got a try on still in stories (it’s saved in my highlights!) and I’m putting together a favorites post too, for later this week! Right now everything is 20-25% off if you’re a Madewell Insider aka an email subscriber. So that means my top + jeans + jewelry are on sale! Let’s break it down:

I publicly declared last week that I love these jeans and that has not changed, in fact my love for them has only grown deeper. I’ve worn them everyday since I got them. EVEN ON THE WEEKEND ya’ll. I actually wore denim instead of yoga pants. If that’s not true love, I don’t know what is. The fit gets better with wear too, they’ve loosened slightly at the waist (yay) but are still fitted at the booty and hips, so they keep their shape. And I’ve noticed with heels they feel fancy, but with sneakers they feel intentionally casual. So these are going to be some favorites this fall for sure. I wear my typical Madewell denim size, 28 regular length. Find them here!

Ready or not, this fall is going to bring back some 90s trends. Throwback things I like: sweater vest, relaxed jeans, that little armpit purse look, hair clips, button downs as jackets. Throwback things I’m ignoring: low rise, bucket hats, baby tees, loose wide leg utility pants, Crocs — except for Gemma, I mean the list goes on and it’s starting to feel like this is just pure shade at this point. But the sweater vest I can get behind. A) it brings me good memories / heavy back to school energy and B) it’s the perfect Texas layering piece. We don’t always need a full layer here but this vest is perfect for wearing alone (as you can see), I can layer a short sleeve or long sleeve knit tee under it, or I can layer a button down underneath it (or perhaps this dress??). So many options! So that’s why I personally love this trend coming back.

This one from Madewell is a new look right? It’s kind of like a pullover but without sleeves. So it’s a half-zip with a very poppable collar (think oversized, dramatic!) but it folds down easily too. I am in the medium, it’s a loose fit but perfect for layering so I’m gonna say TTS! Find it here.

Editor's Notes:

I am in the medium of the sweater vest. It’s pretty thick! Slightly itch if wool affects you, but would be okay if you layered a top under it. I am in the 28 regular of the jeans. TTS! More fitted at the hips.
