There's no doubt that cardigans and knits are a closet must-have. If anything, 2020 has basically cemented its staple status—especially now that everyone's after comfort and style. But given that we live in a tropical country, wearing chunky knits are not always the most clever choice.
Hence, we're giving you style tips on how to wear your fave knitwear pieces all year round.
Wear cool, neutral-colored knits.
Science tells us that wearing light-colored garments feels more comfortable because it reflects sunlight better than dark-colored clothes. It also looks softer to the eyes and cooler to the body since it absorbs less heat.
Don lightweight fabrics.
When choosing the right knitwear to purchase, make sure that you’re buying a light fabric type since light fabrics are more breathable to wear than heavy, close- knit fabric. Pair with shorts or a flowy skirt, to levate your cozy casual outfit.
Layer over a white tee.
When you want to spice up your basic white tee and pants combo, you can choose to throw on a light knitted vest or a bright cardiagn over an oversized white tee to help you achieve that relaxed street style look.
Opt for sleeveless knit vests or crop tops.
Knitted tops, cropped cardigans, and sleeveless sweaters are not only aesthetically pleasing to look at, but will also allow for more ventilation.
Pair it with light trousers and flowy skirts.
When looking for pieces to pair with your knitwear, keep in mind to maintain some balance. If you’re sporting neutral-colored knits, team it with the same color family. That said, you can also team your knits with flowy bottoms since sweaters and cardigans tend to look chunkier.
Wear it as a dress.
When all else fails, you can always rely on a pretty lightweight knit dress if you’re after a dainty little outfit.
