Knits have always been considered casual wear — until they began to compete for a place in the fashion world. This season, the runways, social media, and photo booths were dominated by the art of workmanship, with knitwear becoming the new must-have this summer.
Knitwear may seem counterintuitive to wear in the summer, but when done correctly, it can be an overall fascinating look. Knit or crochet stitching can give an outfit a lot of texture. Regardless of its aesthetic quality, anything knit is guaranteed to be comfy, which is always a plus.
Thin knit fabrics can be worn in a variety of ways to help you stay cool this summer. Because of this rise of knit, crochet swimsuits and swimsuit coverups are surely being reintroduced this summer, bringing an old trend back into the spotlight. Need more convincing? Here are the top knitwear summer outfits worn by your favorite celebs and social media influencers.
