How to style a sweater vest for 2021? 

Not just reserved for the likes of Kendall Jenner and Rihanna, sweater vests are easier to style than you might think. Often worn over a white tee, turtleneck or oversized shirt, they're like an accessory that's functional too as they also keep you warm. They pair perfectly with jeans or you could even wear one over a floaty long-sleeved maxi to sharpen up the silhouette.
