Spring weather calls for lightweight knits.
When it’s sunny but cool, reach for a fine-gage sweater and don’t be afraid of a little pattern and color.
Here’s three examples.
1. Cotton Jersey Cut & Sew
There is a difference between a knit top and a sweater, they are different departments of design.
A knit top, or “cut & sew” garment, is typically thinner and made using cut patterns that are sewn together. A sweater, on the other hand, is usually thicker, warmer and knit together.
This cardigan is jersey cotton, like a t-shirt, so it’s super comfortable and cool.
A cardigan works over a henley, but a band collar button-down gives you the same neckline with a little more swagger, in my opinion.
An age-old trick: use the trousers to pick up one of the subtle tones in the sweater.
