Like its cardigan cousin, the sweater vest is a divisive member of the wardrobe family. With most renditions mocked by your "you could have found that in a thrift store" friends, this outlier has ridden the fringes of fashion for decades, experiencing multiple renaissances while at it.

The sweater vest was everywhere at the pre-Covid Fall/Winter runway shows of the world's biggest fashion houses earlier this year and a healthy dose of those sweater vests have hit stores recently. We've rounded up some of the best sleeveless companions to warm your torsos as we transgress the edges of summer and welcome fall — a season ready and waiting for the sweater vest's layering prowess.

From a luxury offering by Grace Wales Bonner which also happened to have been worn by Harry Styles on a certain mag cover recently to affordable options by the likes of COS, everyone's showing love for the knitted vest, and we're here for it.

Scroll for some of the best sweater vests around right now.
