7 summer knitwear pieces to cover up now that the weather’s turned

by Erin Lindsay
03rd Jun 2020

The sun has hidden away after a week of scorching weather, so these summer knitwear pieces are finally making their debut

The weather has finally taken a turn from its beautiful sunshine of late, but through our tears, we’ve realised this means the chance to change up our outfit choices.

While your WFH wardrobe may have consisted of tracksuit bottoms, and then running shorts as the weather improved, now’s your chance to switch things up. Light summer knitwear is the perfect solution to this slightly chillier weather. Cover-ups that do so in style, choosing from different shades of crochet and airy knitwear is just as fun as picking out your midi dress for these summer days.
