You won't have to wait for "sweater weather" to roll around to wear one of these.

Life in a tropical country breeds a whole new level of sartorial smarts. Since layering is often out of the question, we've had to flex our style dexterity differently, like, say, by print-clashing funky crop tops with abstract-print skirts, and overworking our trusty bralettes. We mourn that "sweater weather" lasts only about three months. We love our cami dresses, but miss the feel of chunky, huggy fabrics. 

That's why we're thankful for the knitted sweater vest trend– it's the best compromise, and is an easy way to add texture to an otherwise one-note outfit. London-born designer Molly Goddard subverted her tulle trademark by adding the said vests to both her Autumn-Winter and Spring-Summer collections this 2021, and we're enamored by the textile combo.

If the voluminous tulle motif isn't your cup of tea, don't fret! Instead, look into these casual OOTDs from local influencers to see how they styled the trendy sweater vest. Read on! 

1. Take a sweater vest with a zigzag pattern and wear it with baggy mid-rise jeans. A apple green scrunchie adds a welcome touch of color.

2. Oh, how we wish that AC took a full mirror selfie! Anyway, we're loving how she wore her houndstooth vest with a white collared polo and dainty mixed metals. We notice that she's clashing cool and warm tones, too: The true white polo and silver ring are cool-toned, while the vest and gold jewelry are warm-toned. Interesting!

3. Tap into hip-hop sensibilities and pursue a baggier take on the trend! Don a wool blend v-neck vest with languid jeans, and white ultra-chunky platform kicks. Forego the jacket on a regular day, but keep the 'fit in mind in case you'll be traveling soon.

4. Okay, we're convinced: We need a sleeveless collared polo to go with our knitted vests. The pairing taps into golfer, Korean schoolgirl, and academia aesthetics. Especially with these Doc-inspired lace-up platforms!

5. YouTuber Aika Agustin is based in Japan, which explains the coat. We guess you wear one, too, if your local grocery store is especially chilly. Wear it with an argyle-pattered vest, a kooky tote, and gray jeans.

6. Cow print has been hot for some time now, so it would be cute to use it a theme for your 'fit. Dress up your OG white tee with a black vest, and finish off the look with high-waisted baggy shorts.

7. You don't always have to wear a T-shirt or collared polo beneath your vest. You're totally free to wear it on its own. A pair of straight-cut jeans and Chucks complete the most relaxed outfit ever. (Peep Rhea's Dior Oblique Canvas shoulder bag!)

8. Say goodbye to having to wear a collared top underneath. This patterned green vest has it's own collar. Case closed! Ashley's wearing it with chunky rings and white cargo pants.

9. Take two! This one resembles Bea Marin's blue vest, but this time, it's in a coffee colorway. It suits the same pair of pants just fine, which is proof that white pants is a wardrobe must-have.

10. Lavender and apple green are best friends. Chi's advice: Wear an argyle vest over a white tee and green pants, and don't be afraid to accessorize. That Jacquemus Le Chiquito bag is also the cutest thing ever.

11. Krystal Brimner definitely knows her way with sweater vests. Here, she wears a cropped piece (argyle, again) and flared jeans with slits along the sides. We're eyeing those angular platform boots, too.

12. Commit to the schoolgirl aesthetic with knitted co-ords worn over a white mock-neck top. She finished off the look with white socks and white block heel sandals. So preppy!
