If you think sweater vests are just for prep-school types, think again. From traditional v-neck styles to shrunken lace-up versions, the sweater vest is a must-have for Fall 2006's layered looks. Go conservative by wearing one over a white dress shirt, or mix it up a bit with a flowing blouse or billowy t-shirt underneath. Plus, a sweater vest is warm—but not too warm—so it's a great piece for transitioning into fall. Here are some great sweater-vest styles at both designer and non-designer prices.
