Summer Knitwear | GS Knitted Vest



The knitted vest is a hard-working essential in your seasonless wardrobe and a must-have for those summer months when you need that extra layer on those chiller summer evenings, smartening up a work outfit or when the temperature drops.
I would love to share with you how GS friends have been styling their GS sleeveless knitted vests.

Nikki from @styleinthestix shows us how to style the GS Laide vest in Jade with a tailored smart aesthetic, perfect for work or mooching around town.

“Far from just a throw on, it’s an outfit changer. The knitted vest is a favourite & works so well layered over a t-shirt.  ”
Nikki has paired it here with culottes and an oversized blazer.

“Summer is…. Azure blue knitwear & crisp white linen & skipping down the lane footloose & fancy-free ☀️ ”
Penny from @styleinthestix shows us how to style the GS Laide vest in Azure Blue with a voluminous, floaty white linen dress.

Transporting me directly to the sandy beaches of Greece with this epic summery look.
Layering the Laide vest over a summer dress is a great way to add a pop of colour and to have that extra layer of warmth when the sun sets at the beach or late evening at a BBQ.

Love the double knit, two-piece vibe, that becomes almost a scarf with the wrap-around of the Leslie Sweater. 

Proof that layering your GS knitted vest over a dress is a summer gamechanger!

With soft hues of raw linen and the Laide vest in jade melange, I love  @_liullland effortless nonchalant style, textured with a pop of colour from her summer red shoes. Every day, timeless, a summer essential.


Such a versatile essential knit for a menswear capsule wardrobe, here the Laide vest in Smoulder works effortlessly through the seasons. A complex melange of charcoal grey with hints of steel blue and burning amber, transforms the vest from day to night, from work to play. Layer with a crisp white T-shirt, paired with tailored trousers for a sartorial feel in the week, then your favourite denim at the weekend for a pared-down feel.

Ready to transform your summer wardrobe with the GS Laide vest? Wear now layered over your favourite summer textures, then let it transform your capsule wardrobe through the colder Autumn months.

The Laide sleeveless sweater vest is designed for versatile, all-year-round wear. A modern relaxed unisex style, based on a menswear silhouette complete with a classic crew neckline and ribbed trims. Made in the UK and traditionally linked for a premium finish.

Knitted in super-soft wool, brushed with dried thistles to give an almost felted effect, perfect for adding a cosy layer to your work from home style over a white tee or base layer

As the Laide vest is a unisex style, I recommend women take a size down and men take their standard size for a refined fit.
