5 Reasons Your Wardrobe Needs Knit Tops

Let’s get down to the knitty-gritty. Having a few knit tops in your wardrobe is an absolute essential for when the temperature dips. Whether you are frolicking in fields picking pumpkins, heading to Starbucks for that trusty PSL, or curled up on the couch with a throw and your latest T.V. show binge, having a few knit tops that match with everything is a necessity.

And if that’s not a vibe enough, here’s five key reasons we’ve threaded together as to why you need knit tops, and ASAP.

1. Knit tops are a great foundation for your wardrobe

Knit tops are a must-have basic for your wardrobe. They’re perfect for throwing on under your thick sweaters and overcoats for a base layer that will keep you warm and cozy. But this paints an unfair picture of your knits being plain and boring. They don’t have to be, especially if you live in climates where you peel off your layers when you enter indoors. We love our Split-Hem Heathered Top worn with black or denim jeans or a gorgeous pair of tan pants. Wear this by the fireplace for a casual, cozy look.

2. They’re classy enough to rock as business casual

If you’re heading into the office and need to look profresh but not uber-corporate, knit tops can be the nice in-between. Throw them on with a pair of dress pants or a mid-length pencil skirt to give you a classy edge. Our Surplice Ribbed Knit Top is the perfect choice. Tuck her into your high-waisted skirt, slip on a pair of wedges and some hoops, and go make that money.

3. You can rock a knit top as evening wear

A-hem! Knit tops are not just a casual day piece. You can easily dress them up for a night out, whether you’re hitting a classy dinner or dive bar. Our Ribbed Twist-Back Sweater is the perfect example. Wear this taupe knit tucked into high-waisted black jeans, and polish off the look with some gold jewelry. For dinner, throw on a pair of strappy heels, and for the dive bar, rock it with some chunky black boots.

4. They look phenom with jeans

For a fun weekend look, throw on a cute knit top with your denim jeans. We love this vibe for hitting up a market, going on an impromptu getaway or heading to brunch with the fam. Our Cropped Cami & Cardigan Sweater Set in camel fits these briefs perfectly. Pair it with high-waisted black or blue denim jeans, and you have a fun and chic weekend ensemble.

5. They come in sexy prints!

That’s right. Knit tops aren’t always just plain boring sweaters you throw on for casual day looks in cooler weather. No, the knit top has been revamped considerably over the years with so many twists and turns. But aside from the fun cuts we see emerging, there are also some funky prints to choose from too. We are vibing this Smocked Floral Peasant Top as a prime example. If you love a femme-chic look, this knit is the right one for you. Keep it casual and wear it with jeans or add to the femme aesthetic and pair it with a satin slip skirt.
