Ah, the Christmas vest. Perhaps not as well known as the Christmas sweater, or its bizarro cousin, the ugly Christmas sweater. But, indeed, the women’s Christmas vest and the men’s Christmas vest are a solid bit of holiday fashion that you may want to make part of your Yuletide tradition (if it’s not already).

As we scoured the web for intel on the Christmas vest, we noticed that it tended to be lumped in with ugly sweaters. And the ugly Christmas sweater — or tacky Christmas sweater — has a venerable history. True story: it’s documented in Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Book: The Definitive Guide to Getting Your Ugly On. But let us not tether the underpinnings of the Christmas vest to the uggie sweater. We are here to assert that the Christmas vest for women and the Christmas vest for men can stand on their own.

Fun or Fashionable

The two categories we’re breaking this into are simple: Christmas vests that are fun (these are kin to the ugly sweater) and Christmas vests that can be excellent members of the wardrobe. You’ll find a selection of each for women and for men. Because of the dominance, and popularity, of the ugly Christmas sweater, you’ll note that many of the fun Christmas vests may be, well, funny…but they’re often good looking, too.

A benefit of the Christmas vest is that it’s part of a holiday ensemble. Layering — when done well — always looks good. A nice shirt, a nice pair of pants or a skirt, and the vest: you’re gonna be the brightest ornament on the tree when you hit the Christmas party. Take a fun Christmas game for adults. Bring along a nice fruitcake. It’s the holidays and you’re the complete guest or host, who happens to be wearing a KA Christmas sweater from the Top 10 Best Christmas Vests.


Women’s Fun Christmas Vests

1. Women’s Penguin Knit Vest

Amazon

This 100 percent soft acrylic sweater vest is from V28. It’s a V-neck knitted piece with a slim fit. The colors are very fun sweaterish: lots of red, blue, yellow and white, which is all set against the black color foundation. The neck, arm holes and waist of the vest are all ribbed red material. The image is of a colorful penguin, wearing ear muffs or wireless headphones (it looks like the penguin is busting some moves, so probably the headgear is Beats by Dre). In addition to the main penguin image, there are several baubles, candy canes, holly leaves, stars and more. Machine washable in cold water with mild soap, lay flat to dry. You can get this Christmas vest in other colors or with an image of Santa on the front.

Price: $9.99-$14.99 (depending on size/style selected)

This 100 percent cotton button-front jacquard sweater is done in a sort of color block style. The front of the sweater features six panels — three in black, two in red and one in green. Each panel has a different design on it: four of them are gingerbread peeps (two gingerbread women, two gingerbread men); one is a Christmas tree and the other is a star. Scattered among all the panels are white snowflakes of varying sizes, as well as some candy canes. The arm holes, placket and waist are ribbed. The back of the sweater is solid red. Note that the sweater requires hand washing. This one gets very positive reviews.

Price: $18.15-$20.30 (depending on size/style selected)

A fun and smart looking plus size V-neck sweater vest from Blizzard Bay. It’s 100 percent acrylic and is machine washable. The sweater has great length to it, ending just a few inches above the knee. Predominantly black, this women’s Christmas vest features continuous white bordering at the placket area, armholes and bottom of the piece. The white bordering is itself bordered and accentuated by a sparkly fabric gold border. Each side of the vest features a long vertical and, at the bottom, horizontal “twirled yarn” affect: on one side it’s red, the other it’s green. There are two large front pockets in green and red, with more of the twirled yarn motif — in white — on the pockets. There are also a few candy drop designs affixed, as well as a candy cane and reindeer. Festive, to put it mildly.

Price: $22.40

4. Women’s Faux Fox Fur Vest

This open front women’s Christmas vest has the look of a richly dyed red fox fur, but it is faux fur. The piece is collarless, but the fabric on the back — near the neck — is very full and gives an appearance of a collar. Overall, the vest is very fluffy and soft. One reviewer says “Just love the fit and thickness of this vest. Very warm worn with a long sleeved sweater.” Indeed, because this is a solid red, it can be paired with a wide range of tops and would look great with black or blue jeans.

5. Women’s Reindeer Zip-Up Sweater Vest

This is a great looking zip-up Christmas vest from Lisa International. They make a variety of colors, designs and styles in this vest (see below) and you can’t go wrong with any of them. This one is black with six tan colored reindeer toward the bottom of the vest. The description from Lisa International calls them reindeer prints, but they almost look like appliqués. The reindeer are detailed with beaded stiching and they’re accented with gold baubles around their necks. There are six bead swirls on the chest area of the vest, along with a scattering of individual beads. What really sets this vest apart is the faux fur collar, which is also in the same black colorway. The arm holes and placket are also in a contrasting black material, so there’s lots of great detailing going on with this piece. Material makeup is 51 percent ramie, 41 percent cotton, six percent rayon and two percent acrylic.

Price: $54.99 (45 percent off suggested MSRP)

6. Women’s Snowman Button Sweater Vest

Another super cute Christmas vest for women from Lisa International. This one features terrific contrasting colors: the main body of the vest is in black; the placket, waist and arm hole trim is in red; and the collar is a soft white faux fur. Affixed to each side of the front of the vest are four snowmen, two on each side. The snowmen are each wearing different outfits of different colors and they’re surrounded by gifts, snowflakes and a Christmas tree. This one features a six button front closure.

Men’s Fun Christmas Vests

7. Men’s Santa & Reindeer Sweater Vest

christmas vest, womens christmas vest, mens christmas vest

This is one of those men’s Christmas vests with a strand of ugly Christmas sweater DNA running through it. That said, we’re of the firm conviction that this pullover sweater vest has plenty of good looks going for it. It’s a V-neck with red ribbed material around the collar, arm holes and at the waist. The background of the vest is black and the image of Santa’s face (three of them at chest level) is in a sort of reverse-image black and white with a red stocking cap. The reindeer are in a rust color and they’re prancing (what else do reindeer do?) in one line near the collar and one line toward the bottom of the vest. Additionally, the vest features horizontally configured, alternating design elements of snowflakes, stars, Christmas trees and holly. The back of the vest is solid black, with the red ribbing at the collar, arm holes and bottom of the vest. Again: fun, but also with solidly good looks. If you’re looking for something really in the ugly (or tacky) Christmas sweater genre, this men’s Christmas vest features an image of Jesus and the words “Birthday Boy.”

Price: $23.99-$24.99 (depending on size selected)

8. Men’s Cartoon Reindeer Vest

This pullover sweater vest is from the Christmas Ugly Sweater Co. While it is true that the cartoonish reindeer image on the front is not exactly a picture of the most handsome buck in the herd, the sweater itself is good looking. It’s white 60 percent cotton, 40 percent acrylic and features a V-neck. The neck, armholes and waist hem are in a contrasting green ribbed knit. The back of the vest is plain, with no imagery but the ribbed knit neck, arm holes and waist hem are prominent. Back to that reindeer: Christmas Ugly Sweater Co. calls him “cheerful.” Who can argue with that?

Price: $19.61-$24.99 (depending on size selected)

9. Men’s Solid Button-Front Sweater Vest

Amazon

This is a very rock solid, classic piece that works great as a Christmas vest, but can also be worn year round. It’s a slim fit button front cardigan, featuring five buttons. (The bottom button is spaced very closely to the button above it, allowing you to follow the pro fashion tip of keeping things neat while leaving that bottom button UNbuttoned.) The V-neck, placket, arm holes and waist hem are all ribbed. This men’s Christmas vest is 100 percent acrylic and you can’t machine wash: either hand wash or dry clean.

Price: $18.99-$26.98 (depending on size/style selected)

10. Men’s Padded Fleece Vest

christmas vest, womens christmas vest, mens christmas vest

We dig this vest because it can be worn as an outdoor garment, but it’s light enough to work indoors, too. This men’s Christmas vest is from Southpole. It’s predominantly a solid black vest, but the shoulder area features a red, white and grey pattern that echoes traditional Christmas and snowflake imagery. The five-snap button vest features diagonal zippered front pockets and a collar that can be worn raised or flat. It’s 100 percent poly and machine washable.

Price: $17.87-$34.99 (depending on size selected)
