There are many versatile pieces that spring to mind when picturing the contents of our wardrobes: cardigans, long-sleeved tops, the loyal friend that is your favourite pair of jeans, perhaps. However, nothing screams “multipurpose” like sweater tops do. Sweater tops have the ability to transform themselves according to your needs; combine one with an elegant skirt or those trusty jeans; wear under a jacket or over a dress.
As well as being very easy to pair with other pieces, sweater tops are also a very practical item to which you can always turn when the temperatures aren’t in your favor. Think Glastonbury, or any other festival for that matter. Throw one on to cover up and you’ll immediately feel boho-chic. Barbecues, balmy evenings drinking sangria on the balcony, early evening walks; sweater tops will be your go-to item this season when there’s a cool breeze in the air.
They are also a key top for the whole year, taking you through autumn and winter. Sweater tops will be your must-have party piece when paired with some killer heels or striking jewellery; they’ll ooze understated glamour like no cardigan ever could. Similarly, dress them down with some boots or stylish trainers and you’ll look effortlessly stylish.
There’s more than a fair share of celebs who have embraced the sweater top trend recently, too. Miranda Kerr is a fan of the laid-back look, pairing hers with denim shorts and suede ankle boots, whereas Olivia Palermo glams hers up with leather trousers, a fur vest and burgundy boots. Sofia Coppola loves her sweater tops so much she wore her striped-design on the red carpet recently with skinny trousers and open-toed heels.
However you choose to wear them, sweater tops are guaranteed to be the shining star of your wardrobe this summer – and throughout the year. Watch this space this autumn… V and V are putting the final touches to our exclusive sweater tops (made in the UK) that you won’t be able to resist.
