NAIL TWO TRENDS AT THE SAME TIME WITH A SWEATER VEST AND MINISKIRT COMBO

You know what they say: "Two is better than one."
27 August 2022

It’s back-to-school season and we all know what this means: Time to dress to impress. 

Miniskirts have been all the rage this year and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon. Accompanying this trend are sweater vests in an array of colours, prints, and textures, which elevate the viral skirts from risqué to preppy. Just take a look at AMI’s SS23 collection for proof.

You can’t go wrong with the classic argyle print and logomania present in this vest. Throw on a pleated skirt from Gucci’s Love Parade collection and you are set.

Let’s be honest, black is a safe colour. Hence, we should try to use other design elements to spice things up such as a deep V-neck vest and a ruched miniskirt with hip straps.

JW Anderson’s Flared Mini Skirt

Two words: Go bold. As creative director of both houses, Jonathan Anderson is a genius when it comes to incorporating offbeat elements to all his designs. While both glimmering pieces stand out on their own, they come together nicely to serve.

Cottagecore meets festival wear – this look is perfect for those who love drama. A true feast for the eyes, the oversized paillettes will capture attention from a mile away while the soft vest grounds the look – the last thing we want to be is a hot mess.

Let’s flip it and reverse it, instead of an ultra miniskirt, may we introduce the super crop sweater vest? This subversive knitwear from Doublet even features a charred hem. Pair it with a white button-down and an asymmetrical skirt and you’re ready to strut into school.
