Knitwear is one of our favourite trans-seasonal pieces, with a vast range of thicknesses and styles, from chunky knits to keep you cosy in the middle of winter to lightweight fine knits that are ideal for throwing on over your bikini in summer, there’s an endless array of pieces out there that will keep you looking on trend all year round.
To get you feeling inspired and prove that knitwear isn’t exclusive to the cooler months, we’ve curated some outfit ideas with our favourite knit styles for every season.
From chic midi dresses that can be dressed up or down, to loose fitting mini dresses that are perfect for the warmer months, you’ll find a knit dress for every season and occasion. In autumn and winter, pair a knitted midi dress with gorgeous heeled leather boots and a long line trench coat; and for days when you need a little something extra, drape a knitted scarf around your neck. Switch up the knit density for summer and opt for a fine knit or crochet finish with a relaxed fit mini dress that you can slip on over your bikini to take you from the beach to the bar.
Depending on the style, knit cardigans can be layered over an outfit or worn on their own as a top. For the perfect layered look, choose a long cardigan that finishes between your knee and ankle and slip it on over a mini or midi dress, adding western inspired boots and a coordinating bag to create a gorgeous springtime look. If you’re looking for a cardigan that doubles as a top, opt for a cropped cardigan that can be buttoned up and pair it with a floaty mini skirt in the warmer months or your go to pair of jeans as the temperature drops.
Another firm favourite, a knit top can be styled for an effortlessly cool look in spring, summer, autumn or winter. Explore knitted sleeveless tops that can be worn alone or layered to keep you warm, or versatile cropped knits with long sleeves. For the ideal summer fit, pair a sleeveless top in a fine knit with wide leg pants in linen or lightweight cotton and finish your look with a pair of leather sandals and an oversized beach tote. In late autumn and early winter, combine a cropped long sleeve knit with a slinky maxi skirt as you head out for a lowkey dinner with friends.
Knit sweaters come in an almost endless array of styles and thicknesses. If you’re heading off on a winter vacation in the snow, check out oversized fits with a turtle neck and chunky cable knit, or stay warm either side of summer with something light weight; think fine knits and cashmere inspired pieces. Layer up with an oversized leather jacket as afternoon turns into evening.
No matter the season, knitwear pieces can be tailored and paired with your go to staples to create the perfect look. Update your trans-seasonal wardrobe with flattering knit dresses, snug knit cardigans, versatile knit tops and must have knit sweaters and you’re set for seasons to come!
