Ugly Sweater Vests Are Just *So* Hot Right Now

Love them or hate them, sweater vests are having their moment in the sartorial sun right now—seen on influencers, celebrities, and stylish nerds alike. This “ugly” ’90s outerwear style has made a comeback in a big way, and there’s no shame in embracing it. Of course, while the trend has been available in spades from straight-sizes-only brands for a while, they’re just beginning to arrive in plus sizes. It’s a damn shame—considering how cute sweater vests look on just about anyone—but you best believe any chic and shoppable plus-size sweater vests have made their way into this guide.

Whenever new trends appear in the fashion world, plus-size folks are among some of the last to gain access. Fast fashion brands typically offer trendy pieces in straight sizes first, and many slower, smaller fashion brands have their own aesthetic that doesn’t necessarily include fleeting, on-trend picks. So where does that leave anyone above a size 12/14?

Though there were far fewer options than anyone who loves the trend might have wanted several months ago, plenty of your favorite brands have risen to the occasion—from PrettyLittleThing to ELOQUII. So if you’re ready to slip on a sweater vest and join the ’90s nerd style bandwagon, you do have some seriously cute options. (!)

Go ahead and give this trend a whirl, babes. Your size shouldn’t limit what clothes you get to wear—and even though the fashion industry hasn’t quite caught on to this concept yet, there are ways around it. Keep reading to discover the cutest plus-size sweater vests available right now, and get ready to show the world that trends belong to all sizes.
