My mom and I are about the same size, so I sometimes let her “borrow” things from my closet with the expectation that I’d never see those pieces again. Something that had been on loan to her since last winter–one that I miss enough to order a replacement–is this houndstooth sweater vest from Amazon.
It doesn’t look like much, but I wear it a lot. Over button-downs. Under sweater-coats. This printed knit vest adds both visual and textural interest to monochrome outfits, without over-formalizing them. And the duotone colorway furthers its versatility.
