STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Can't Escape the Knits

Even when it’s hot outside there is no way to shake the love of knitwear. Just about any occasion can warrant a knit jumper or cardigan. This Fashionista proves that there is a place for this warmer fabric no matter the temperature.

This trend has both aesthetic and practical uses. Knitwear comes in just about every possible color and pattern combination while also varying in the type of yarn used. The varying levels of thickness are also a great way to make sure you’re always covered, no matter the weather. The bonus of this trend is that it can also provide an extra layer between cooler winds and that unfortunate wash of coldness that runs over you when the sun suddenly dips behind clouds. Knits add a great texture that brings dimension to a more back to basics outfit, which is especially great for on the go college students who don’t always have time to think out outfits.

So how exactly does one wear a bulkier top such as a knit? Well this Fashionista tucks hers into high-waisted shorts which shows a great juxtaposition between winter wear and summer wear. By rolling up the sleeves she gives a cute, temporary cut to the sleeve which gives another interesting dimension to the look. I think this is such a great trend because it allows one piece to be useful all year long instead of sitting and collecting dust in a closet during the summer.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I think that high-waisted shorts are so great because they keep it all tucked in while being a variation from the normal, low-rise shorts that are usually worn. But they’ve got to be comfy if I’m going to sacrifice leggings for them.”
