Knitwear isn’t just for your winter wardrobe. With unique antibacterial, moisture-absorbing and anti-odour properties, woollen wear is also a practical, versatile and style-conscious choice for the summer months. Classic, timeless and a worthwhile investment, quality knitwear can be worn all year round no matter what turn the British weather may take. Here are our top knitwear trends to try this summer:
Summery and sleeveless
Sleeveless knits are bang on trend this season. A slouchy sleeveless vest in a neutral tone is perfect for dressing up or down. Pair it with jeans or denim shorts for a laid-back summer look or dress it up for a night out with leather-look trousers or a skirt. Crochet-style sleeveless knits are also making a return this year. Add tailored trousers for an eye-catching contrast or cargo shorts for the ultimate in casual cool.
Mens fisherman sweaters
For summer nights or cooler days, a fisherman sweater is perfect for pulling over your outfit as an evening outdoors closes in. Choose moisture-wicking Merino wool mens fisherman sweaters to help you keep warm in winter and sweat-free in summer. A traditional fisherman sweater can be paired with tailored trousers or your favourite denim jeans, and worn as a relaxed, slouchy fit or accessorised for summer office style.
The longline cardigan
Ideal for layering over your summer outfit, a longline knitted cardigan in a lightweight knit fabric adds effortless style to your ensemble. Choose neutrals for a versatile look or add a patterned cardigan for a pop of colour. If you are not sure which colour cardigan will best suit you, there are resources to help.
Rib knits are trending this summer. Lightweight fitted knit dresses have been making an appearance on runways, and rib knit co-ords and sets have been featured across many fashion blogs.
A knitted top and skirt or shorts set is the height of casual cool this season, adding style to a comfortable ensemble. With many different options available, you could opt for a cropped top with shorts or a cosy jumper set.
