Who knew that wearing knits would be an ideal summer staple?

It’s not wrong to think that the only time to flaunt your knits is when you’re in a cooler climate. These days, it’s all about wearing what you’re comfortable in, as long as it’s in your desired style. We noticed a rise in knits lately during this Spring/Summer season, from oversized to chunky and cropped to sleeveless. To make it easier for you, we’ve narrowed down what your stylish content creators are pairing their knits with and how you too can ace it flawlessly.

Trust Daiyan to exude the look in a chic way. We love how she styles her knit sweater by tying it around the shoulders for a cleaner look. The trick is to keep your ensemble on the minimal side and match your top with bottoms that stand out. In this case, hunting for dual-coloured denim jeans is just enough to make a statement.

Yaya Zahir has become an inspiration to many with her bold-meets-preppy style, and we love this number she’s wearing. The checked cardigan in neon blue and orange works well for a day-to-night affair, especially when paired with neutral-hued bottoms to match. Finish the look with gold danglers and chunky rings.

Have a sleeveless knit sweater stored in your closet? Go loose and flowy for your bottoms to create a proportioned look. Roselyn paired hers with belted pants to prevent her look from looking too relaxed and simple. You can even wear it on its own, or by layering a denim jacket in a similar colour.

Crochets are in, and Nana sure knows a thing or two about styling a halter top like this. With dreamy hues in orange and purple, you can style your checked top with beige denim for a clean balance. Keep the ensemble lively by accessorising with pearl jewellery and dainty gold necklaces.

Nia is here to show you how to ace the deep v-neck vest this season. If it’s oversized and boxy like hers, think about layering an oversized white button-down beneath. You could also pair it with a button-down dress or keep the look breezy with shorts underneath. The fedora adds a classy touch while keeping you cool when you’re out and about.

With a fitted knit vest top, it’s best to keep things simple and cinched to match your bottoms. Follow in Batrisyia’s footsteps by donning high-waisted skinny jeans, and finish the look with a pair of combat boots for a rugged edge. Keep in mind that you can always match your shoes with the colours printed on your vest for a co-ord ensemble.

Need some inspiration on how you can elevate your checked pants? Cheng is here to show you that mixing colours from bright to warm can be the best option. Go bold with a vividly coloured cropped sweater, or cinch the waist with a black belt and complete the look with sneakers for a high-street finish.
