TREND: Knit Picks

Summer in New York can be quite hot and humid which is why lightweight knit tops are a smart trend to invest in. This Fashionista’s outfit drew me in because I thought it was very relatable, and it is a simple outfit for any Fashionista to replicate. Also to note about this outfit is how the Fashionista demonstrates that two loose pieces worn together can look tailored without being tucked in. While her outfit is pretty simple, she adds some spark with metallic gladiator sandals and funky sunglasses. To transform the outfit from day to night, the knit can be worn tucked in with a pleated midi skirt or with bright colored jeans and heels. This summer, there are endless shopping and styling options for the perfect knit top.

Hint: Knit tops can be worn in so many ways that you really only need to invest in a few, and play with styling options. Following this Fashionista’s lead, you can easily make a simple outfit stand out by accessorizing with jewelry, shoes or sunglasses. For a metallic knit, this Zara option would look great layered over a black maxi dress or eyelet white shorts. For a cropped style, this 3.1 Phillip Lim splurge can be worn layered with a patterned tank underneath or with just a bra for a sexier appeal. My advice is to purchase a few knits in different styles in neutral colors and a fun metallic style. While summer knits are light and breezy for the hot weather, the styles can be layered and easily transitioned for those colder months. Purchase knitwear this summer, and you will be able to wear and style it differently for plenty seasons to come.
