I Live in Knit Tops, and These Are the Ones I'm Debating Buying for Summer

Knit tops are a wardrobe essential in every sense of the word. Basics are clearly staples, but I'd argue that the trendy styles are as well—especially in the summer when fashion tends to be a little looser and more fun. At the moment, I'm kind of overwhelmed by how good the knit-top options are, so I've spent some time narrowing them down to my personal favorites. 

As much as I try to diversify my wardrobe, the thing I wear the most in the summer is knit tops, hands down. They're easy and versatile and usually resistant to wrinkles, which are all good things when it comes to deciding what to wear during the most carefree of seasons.

I scoured the internet for all of the most useful, trend-forward, compliment-worthy tops and found 30 that are really excelling in every single way and come in at a variety of price points. Scroll to shop them along with me.

It's summer (well, almost)—wear the pink top.

Just the thing to wear with denim shorts.

Crochet in the summer? Groundbreaking. (JK, it never gets old to me.)

I already bought this top, and I have zero regrets.

I'm such a sucker for embroidery.

I ordered this recently, and it's quickly become one of my favorite tees.

This pretty top is a feast for the eyes.

As far as cropped tank tops go, this one is perfect.

You can't go wrong with a little '90s minimalism.

This is the coolest T-shirt I've seen in a while.

I think we can all agree that the best thing to say here is "pretty in pink."

You can never have too many striped tops.

I predict you'll find yourself reaching for this a lot.

A good example of why fashion people love Dion Lee.

Another excellent striped tee for your consideration.

This is so affordable and comes in many excellent colors.

This is technically a workout top, but it's too good to reserve just for that.
