Fall Trend Alert! Making a Play for Sweater Vests

There is something rather preppy and cool about the sweater vest and it’s back for fall 2008. Whether it’s argyle, a long cardigan or a good old-fashioned school boy version, you can’t go wrong this season.

As you can see you can wear a sweater vest with pants, jeans or a skirt. Try a long vest belted over a dress (see Tuleh above) or an argyle vest over a bow blouse (another hot trend this season).
