The knit list: 6 spring jumpers and cardigans to see you through the season

During the transitional time between spring and summer, we still need layers of warming knitwear to combat the season’s chill. Our Fashion Stylist, Lynda, shares six of her top spring knitwear picks for an effortless wardrobe shift. Shake off winter’s grey skies and embrace colour-drenched styles that reflect the blossoming new season ahead.

1. The boxy knit

Perfect for anyone who likes a looser T-shirt shape, our new fluffy knit has shorter sleeves and a relaxed cut. In the softest pink shade, pair with a contrasting silky skirt or washed-out blue jeans for a springtime palette. ‘Wear it untucked for a cleaner silhouette,’ suggests Lynda.

2. The wrap cardigan

This super-soft knit has a fresh feel that’s ideal for spring. 'We love the versatility of this cardigan shape,’ explains Lynda. ‘In our shoot we styled it as a top, but it could easily be layered over a strappy dress or vest.’ As green is the colour of the season, you can’t go wrong.

3. The knitted polo

Defined by its retro feel, this knitted polo has a slightly cropped waist and blue wave pattern for a fresh take on the classic style. A great spring update to the regular jumper, style with casual denim trousers or shorts in the summer.

4. The tie waistcoat

A knitted waistcoat is a great shape for lightweight layering – wear solo in the warmer months or pair with a dress or top in spring. This style comes in a cardigan too, so you’ve got options. The tie front creates a flattering V-neck, with a pretty lace stitch and metallic trim.

5. The bomber jacket

Our favourite zip-up style has been given a neon update for spring. ‘Always a go-to for an off-duty, casual look, this looks best with denim and a pair of statement earrings,’ advises Lynda. Knitted with a subtle sparkle, the pastel palette and OB-designed shell motifs make this a standout layer.

6. The knitted top

This feminine knitted top has a Parisian look and feel, with a delicate open-knit stitch and deep scoop neck. ‘Easily dressed up for a special evening or down for weekends, the monochrome palette and classic cut make this design a transitional wardrobe staple,’ says Lynda.
