Fashion Trend: Why You NEED Summer Knits In Your Life

3. The Crochet Dress.

Why you need it: So we'll probably never get to do any 'Coachilling'  in a dress as beautiful (or expensive) as RHW's Chloe number - but we can damn well try! Knitted dresses make for great coolside cover-ups - the holier the better - and are comfy as hell! They're a bit weighier than your average floaty summer dress so you'll avoid any embarassing windy moments. 

How to style it: If it's really loose knit then you can add a slip underneath for a night out, or flaunt your assets in your most statement-making bikini. Sandals or cut-out boots and a teeny tiny bag. Perfect.

LOL! 8 REALLY RATHER BRITISH SUMMMER TIME PROBLEMS

1. The Poncho.

Why you need it: No not the rainy day kind, the knitted kind - although a clear plastic rain-poncho over the top would look SO festi-chic! They're a really good throw over and let's face it, has anything ever looked so comfy?? They keep the chill out but still let the air in. PERFECT!

How to style it: Go bare legged, short skirt shorts/dress, any combination will do! Stick on some wellies for the festivals or rock the Birks for some allout hippy styling at those summer evening BBQ's.

2. The Knitted Crop.

Why you need it: Is it over-kill to merge 70's and 90's style? Naaaah! The knitted crop top is basically just a more unique alternative to those standard old cotton things we've been teaming with or mini skirts for years now. It's all about the texturs people!

How to style it: Denim A-line skirt FTW! Or a floaty maxi skirt (with a thigh high split perhaps? if you're not feeling putting your pins completely out there just yet. Hippy-grunge perfection!

THE HOTTEST CELEB SUMMER OUTFITS TO GET YOU INSPIRED FOR THE SUNSHINE

5. The sleeveless cardi.

Why you need it: Much like the more structured sleevelss jackets that we've come to know and love this year, the cardi version has one purpose - to complete your outfit! Sometimes your dress needs a partner, your jeans 'n' tshirt need a pal, and most of the time that friend can be found in the staple leather biker. But summer calls for something else...

How to style it: Not sure you peeps even need our advice here, they go with just about anything! But we'll be teaming ours with some denim flares, platforms and some hella-huge sunnies.
