Knitwear is most commonly associated with winter, but let me politely remind you that this is Britain, and you can be pretty sure that 350 days out of the calendar year will likely call for knitwear. I know this all too well, as I currently reside in Edinburgh, which frequently comes out on top as one of the UK's chilliest cities. Even though my mind is firmly fixated on spring, knitwear must still play a pivotal role in my outfit planning. That, dear readers, is where this article comes in.
I've scanned the S/S 20 catwalks to bring you the top spring knitwear trends this year has in store. Yes, you read that right—spring knitwear. One of the key looks of the new season is easy layering, and nothing is as easy to layer as a loose-fitting cardigan that slides delicately off the shoulder, or a cable-knit jumper worn neatly over a pie-crust collar blouse and tucked into jeans.
While there are plenty of knitwear looks you can try right now, we're taking our cues from the catwalk by honing in on these five runway-approved trends. Scroll below to see (and shop) the top knitwear to stock up on for spring 2020.
