You really can’t beat some top-notch layering during the not too hot, not too cold months. The humble sweater vest is a go-to for me. It suits both short and long sleeves and can look just as good with a casual outfit as a more dressed-up one.
In my opinion, the sweater vest that COS have been stocking over the last couple of years is one of the greatest available. Its strong crewneck collar allows for an array of ways it can be worn and its super comfy, cotton-wool blend is easily worked into your in-between-seasons wardrobe.
Sustainably crafted from an organic cotton-wool blend, the V-neck vest features a mouline twist yarn for a melange effect. The relaxed fit make s this piece perfect for layering as it fits effortlessly underneath jackets and shirts alike.
What’s more, COS have recently released a slightly updated version of the vest, this time with a big alteration to its material.
COS’s newer vest is set apart from others on the high street thanks to its luxe finish: it is made with 100%, fully traceable cashmere, certified by the Good Cashmere Standard.
Designed to be layered or worn on its own, this 100% traceable cashmere knitted vest is soft to the touch and has been cut for a slim fit. The loose-knit structure adds texture to this sleeveless design. The ribbed trims lean in to its stylish look.
In my opinion, picking up a vest from COS for your autumn and winter wardrobe is a must.
