This soft sweater vest makes a nice extra layer especially in transition seasons. It is very comfortable and washes well. Something to note is that I got the sage green color. It is very pretty but really more of a seafoam, on the blue end of green. It does not match a single top in the National catalog, but it does look well with solid colors. My only complaint is that it is just slightly small. I generally wear a 24, and since 3X covers 24/26 I expected it to be a little loose, which I like in a layering piece. This just barely buttons and there are slight gaps between buttons toward the bottom. It looks all right and I am keeping it, but I would have liked a slightly more generous shaping.

Color Not what I expected

I have not washed the garment so don't know how well it washes but the color is more grey than I like.

    Comments about Classic Sweater Vest by National®:

    In mid-winter I'm wearing one of these lightweight vests over a cotton turtleneck. At home, the vest adds warmth to the turtleneck without encumbering my arms and hands (as a sweater would.) At work, casual is OK, but I like to look more businesslike than just a cotton turtleneck with a pair of black pants. The color-coordinated vest with a nice scarf or piece of jewelry completes the business-casual look very nicely, without adding too much warmth, as a jacket might. Perfect! Wish I had gotten one of these sooner!

      I have several of these vests and wear one almost every day - they give a "finished" look to pants and ultrasoft knit tops. An ideal look for a "mature lady" who still wants to look put together. If you had more colors I would buy more!

            I have this vest in almost every color. As an elder person size 2x is perfect for me and the lightweight knit keeps my shoulders warm in all seasons. The colors complete or provide contrast with my monochromatic color preferences. Comes out of wash (hang to dry) looking new.

                              I have these vests in every color! They are perfect for using over blouses or tops when a sweater is too much, or when an extra layer is needed in winter. They can really tie an outfit together too!

                                Bought several of these vests to provide a light layer of warmth plus a touch of color for chilly days. A nice choice of colors to fit most any wardrobe. The perfect solution to brighten your day!

                                  These vests are soft, flattering, and very useful for layering. They can be worn over a long-sleeved tee shirt or blouse, or an elbow-sleeved tee shirt. They wash and dry well. I now have two. It's hard to restrain myself from ordering more.
