It's always sweater vest season.

Once loved by geography teachers and librarians, the sweater vest might not have started out with impeccable fashion credentials. But cut to 2022 and everyone seems to have embraced the sleeveless knitwear style.

In theory, it's rather unsexy. We only need look, however, to the women who have managed to make them look effortlessly cool to be convinced that a sweater vest is a very good idea. Take Hailey Bieber, who watched her husband's latest show in a cropped sweater vest by FILA, no less, and low-slung cargo pants, taking the once stuffy sweater vest to a whole new level of sexy.

Elsewhere, Gigi Hidid styled hers super slouchy and super oversized with your friend and mine, tracksuit bottoms, and a pair of classic Converse.

Over on the spring catwalks, we were treated to some high-fashion knitted vests, justifying their spot in the style stakes. Molly Goddard's tangerine striped knit was worn on the baggy side over billowing maxi skirts. Philosophy's offering was tight, cropped and came with matching knitted trousers for good measure. Ferragamo's sweater vests were more demure; plain black knits layered over crisp white shirts.

And next season, the sweater vest's popularity still won't have waned. For AW22, we've already seen brands bringing back the knit for another round. Max Mara, Missoni and Rejina Pyo all offered up some super slouchy sleeveless sweaters, either worn over bare arms or neatly over shirts and long-sleeved tops.
