Top Five Clever Spring Cover-Ups!
Spring can be a difficult season to dress for, particularly with the weather as changeable as it has been. It’s very rare to see snow in March, and its appearance is likely to have thrown many spring wardrobes into a quandary. While sundresses and shorts might usually have been making an appearance, we’ve instead had to cling onto our winter wardrobes for a little longer than usual.
Hopefully April and May will see the weather warming up, as they did last year, but an occasional chill in the air is to be expected. You can still bring your spring/summer outfits out to play though, with the help of a clever cover-up.
Fine knit cardigans and jumpers fit the bill perfectly, and will enable you to wear your summer outfits earlier in the season for maximum value for money. Choose from these fantastic five clever cover-ups:
The Crochet Cardigan
Crochet is the perfect type of knit for warmer days. Light and airy, but giving that extra layer of warmth and coverage, the crochet knit is a great warm weather choice of cover-up.
The Moda Crochet Cardigan £16 at George ASDA fastens at the neckline and then skims curves for a fluid, relaxed look – or why not give crocheting a go yourself an create a homemade original?
The Open Knit Jumper
An open knit jumper is ideal for slipping on over classic vest tops, when extra warmth is needed. The George open knit Jumper in burnt orange £14 would look fantastic with classic denim cut offs or beige chinos and a simple white cotton vest.
The Half Sleeve Cardigan
The half sleeve is a summery update on the full sleeve cardigan, perfect for wearing over jeans and a vest for an easy to wear layered look. The George Half Sleeve Cardigan in coral will add a fresh shot of spring colour to denims, and its longer length makes it ideal for wearing over leggings too.
The bolero cropped cardigan is a good evening option, for when you want to smarten up your knitwear slightly. You’ll find a range of colours to choose from at ASDA, from just £6, meaning you can have one to suit every evening outfit.
The Classic Fine Knit
The fine knit is a spring to summer staple, whether you prefer cardigans or jumpers. Ideal for allowing you to wear those shorts and vest top combos for longer, a simple fine knit is a comfortable, cosy addition to spring outfits.
When choosing your cover-ups, look for knitwear with a high cotton count, to keep you cool and comfortable when the temperature rises, yet warm when there’s a slight chill in the air.
You could also use your cover-ups to add interest to your spring/summer essentials – choose animal prints, florals, colour or bold designs to update a simple wardrobe with new season style. The G21 Animal Print Cardigan and the Peplum Knitted Jumper at George are perfect examples of fashion forward knitwear.
Add some clever cover-ups to your spring/summer outfits and stay stylish and warm through the changeable weather.
