These knitted pieces have been spotted on countless Hollywood it-girls including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid just to name a few. Paired either with a blouse underneath or worn on its own as a knitted tank top, these bright and playful pieces have caught the attention of major fashion publications like Vogue and many more.

These elegant pieces have been popping up all over Instagram, with fashion influencers debuting both the fitted and oversized vest look.
