Not to brag, but I’ve become something of a sweater vest expert over the last few months. I went ahead and bought a few simple options as soon as they sprung onto the fashion scene in late 2020, but it’s safe to say that my collection could do with some updating this season—and ASAP. So, because I have a terrible habit of online window shopping, I’ve rounded up all of the new sweater vest styles that I have my eye on right now. And yes, some of these are in my checkout cart as we speak.

From bright green floral options from TikTok-approved brands like Lisa Says Gah! to sleek longline alternatives from the likes of H&M and Zara, this list is chock-full of sweater vests that are just dying to be layered over a thin tee or turtleneck this fall. Or, go ahead and wear one of the cropped options from this list with an ever-so-trendy pleated mini skirt for that classic preppy back-to-school look—even if you haven't stepped foot on a college campus in years. Keep reading for a complete rundown of this season’s most in-demand sweater vest styles.
