Snug but stylish: 12 sweater vests to ease you back into office wear this January

Prolong the Christmas comfort dressing a little longer and get yourself a sweater vest; cute, cosy and Portia from The White Lotus-approved.

Christmas may have come and gone for another year but we’ve still got 500 days of January to get through before we can even think about packing some of the thermals away. The Irish weather is unpredictable at best (volatile at worst), so layers will be your best friend in the coming weeks – and there’s no better way to stay warm than with a colourful sweater vest.

One of the many 90s-inspired trends to have come back with a vengeance, it’s a garment many have passed off as “grandfather chic”. That might be so, but with the resurgence of platform loafers, patterned tights, and miniskirts, your combo could take you anywhere from Clueless to Chandler Bing to Portia in The White Lotus depending on how you style it.

Here are some of our current favourites. Shop our edit of sweater vests below.
