It may sound like an oxymoron, but lightweight knitwear really is a summer-evening savior – just look to this season’s offerings by insider-favorite labels such as Stella McCartney, Co and Joseph for proof that this essential layer can be worn all year round.
Styling-wise, wear over a dress with some barely-there sandals or this season’s flip-flops, or go for a full knitted dress or tank top. Choose a plunging neckline or cropped option and pair with a floaty skirt or loose pants for the perfect alfresco dinner outfit. If you go for a bolder design, throw on with a pair of slouchy shorts for a no-brainer look that will keep you on-trend all summer long.
