I’ve already talked about my love of the preppy style resurgence once on the blog, but today I’m focusing on a different preppy style trend: sweater vests! I made many trips to local thrift stores before finding one to add to my collection. I’ve found that they key to styling sweater vests is making sure they have v-neck neckline. I’m usually against v-necks, but they work so well with this style and adding a collared shirt underneath!
When styling your own sweater vest, you could also pair it with a pleated or flared skirt, but I chose to style mine with jeans since it was a crisp 38 degrees when doing this shoot. I also think the jeans make it so wearable and cute for day-to-day activities! To really play up the preppy vibe, I added a pearl choker and green marble hair clip.
