While a sweater-vest might be synonymous with all things dorky, dweeby, and other difference many mostly practical to Steve Urkel and concerned dads, it’s in a midst of a renaissance. From a critical 2015 catwalk turnout everywhere from Miu Miu Resort to Dior Pre-Fall, it afterwards done a rounds on a Spring 2016 runways during Gucci and Prada. This time, a reversion tack was some-more geek-chic, hovering along cool-granny during Gucci where it was fuzzy, nubby, and Lurex-threaded, layered over flimsy tops, while it perceived a sip of Dewey Decimal gift during Prada, thrown on tip of striped turtlenecks and pleated skirts for a desirable sip of librarian flair.

But a runways are one thing, genuine life’s another: Is it probable to give a sweater-vest, a nerd-alert staple, a lurch of punkish cool? Yes! Look to nothing other than Saint Laurent heavenly Grace Hartzel, who simply transforms a sweater-vest’s concerned reputation. The indication surfaced her black, long-sleeve weave with a retro crocheted sweater-vest and a front-button denim mini A-line skirt. The game-changing styling trick? A span of ripped black nylon tights. We told we she was a Saint Laurent girl.
