September is all about transitional wear, so make a good in-vestment this season! Jeanne Beker has selected the best suit vests, this season’s hottest trend — wear it on its own or layer it into the cooler weather. 

A. ONE-SHOULDER SMOULDER

“This has such a charm to it; with that one shoulder, it would look great with a jacket on top. There’s such charm and whimsy to the unexpected.” Freda’s, $115, 45 Elm St. 

B. DENIM DREAMS

“This has a great faded look and a beautiful neckline. This looks like something you could have brought back from your wardrobe from the ’70s!” TNT, $395, 87 Avenue Rd. 

C. EXTREME LEATHER

“This is really edgy, really sexy, and would look so hot with nothing underneath. This will add an edge to any outfit you pair it with.” Thursdays, $345, 1130 Yonge St. 

Yellow linen suit vest from 100% Silk Shop, Checkered vest from Smythe, one-button vest from Envy & Grace

D. GO FOR GOLD

“I love the colour of this; it’s great for day or night. And those brass amulets hanging from it bring something unique to a traditional piece.” 100% Silk Shop, $360, 1558 Dupont St. 

E. POWER SUITING

“This vest goes down to the hip, which is great for people who don’t like that crop. This has a ’70s vibe to it, and is a forever piece for sure.” Smythe, $425, 1116 Yonge St. 

F. BUTTON UP

“The lapels are great on this; it’s a really strong look. This would look great layered. Such an elegant look, especially in the beige.” Envy & Grace, $22.25, 1 Bass Pro Mills Dr.
