Fall Style Guide: Sweater Vest Season is Here!

Sweater vests are our holy grail of layering. These sleeveless slouchy vees make it possible to live in sweater weather year-round. There are limitless ways to style and accessorize your sweater vest, but the warmth, quality, and versatility of the Ash is unmatched. Who can resist a versatile vest that is practically begging to be dressed up and down?

Whether you’re sporting your vest over distressed skinny jeans for a modern-chic ensemble, or embracing your preppy side by tucking a white, crisp button-down into a pleated skirt and laying your Ash- it always allows you the best of both worlds. Ash’s versatility goes far beyond the realm of preppy or edgy. We asked founder and CEO Lauren Parrish Walker her favorite ways to style her slouchy vee vest and narrowed down our favorite, most replicable looks. It's safe to say we’re obsessing over the range of this piece! 

1. Keep it Simple 

Lauren loves to style the Ash with simple jeans topped off by eclectic jewels and big hoops, or something to draw the eye like a fedora. The simplicity of the vest’s silhouette paired with the colors and shapes of jagged jewelry makes a captivating combination! You ask, we over-deliver. We thought of every last detail when creating this garment, down to the side splits and oversized arm openings for a flattering cut. 

2. Go Bold 

Feeling bold? Turn things up a notch this fall and size up in the Ash for an oversized look, styling it with a wide belt, tights, thick socks, and either heeled boots or Doc Martens. The ease of this sweater will make you want to buy two- lucky you! 


3. Layers

This piece is perfect to layer both over and under, as it walks the line between casual and sophisticated. Perfect for attending zoom calls while still providing the luxurious fit and feel of athleisure. It goes perfectly under your favorite cardigan like the Lola to live out your layering dreams. Or, for texture play throw a silky lacey cami under the knit Ash, and layer our Jude cardigan for a more sultry-sleek look. Accessorize with a warm scarf and arm warmers to complete the cozy yet collected feel. 

Everyone needs a little Ash in their life. The only question is which color? Thankfully, Ash comes in black and white; renowned for being a knock-out year-round staple you don’t want to pass on.
