must have

BASICS:  TOPSHOP black grunge jumper (here)     |     TOPSHOP knitted zip jumper (here in grey)
STRIPED:  DAY BIRGER ET MIKKELSEN striped jumper (here)    |     LINE b&w striped  linen knit
NEON:  VILA neon sweater     |     WEEKDAY listen knit  (see an outfit featuring a similar one here)

Even though spring and summer are fast approaching I am still finding myself wearing some of
my favorite knits every day. Summer in Iceland is not as warm as other places, as you can imagine
so it's a necessity for everyone to have some of these pieces to grab on to for a sunny day. During
the summer I use my lighter knits and store the chunkier ones until the winter season hits us again.
Here above or some of my favorite knitted sweater trends that I think everyone must have in their
closet. First of all there are the basic sweaters that make any outfit look casual and effortless at the
same time. I love how you can really play with these basic pieces by adding a statement necklace
if you feel too casual. Another favorite of mine are neon sweaters. They are so fun and especially
during the summer time. The last trend that is really hot right now are stripes. B&W stripes will be
everywhere this summer and fall and it's also a trend that never really goes out of style.
What is your favorite kind of knitted sweaters?

P.S. Thank you all for your lovely comments on the last blog post. It seems you guys 
loved the dress just as much as I do and I can't wait to share with you how I style it.
I am taking the weekend off to celebrate easter with my family as well as eating way
too much chocolate - in the meantime follow me on Instagram @alexsandrab.
