Women's Knit Tops Trends For Every Look

There are so many styles of women's knit tops available at retail that sometimes the choices can be overwhelming. Styling options cover a wide variety of silhouettes and fabrications and are constantly evolving to include the latest trend details such as cut-outs, all-over prints and color-blocking. Knit tops looks can start with a basic tee and transform into intricate styles that include ruffles, bows, ties, shirring and  every type of embellishment.

In this article, I will focus on some of the more feminine knit tops that will enrich any woman's closet. Some of my favorite details for women's knit tops include lace trim, color-blocking, fabric-mixing, cut-out detailing and rhinestoned embellished tops. Even a simple style can be made into a luxurious item by adding a fabric such as lace or tulle and embellishing it with trims such as embroidery or sequins.

Fabrications such as jersey and rib knits provide a comfortable option to woven shirts and conform and shape to a women's body. Styles are generally easy to care for and can be worn casually or dressed up depending on the occasion. Even a graphic tee with a novelty screen print or appliqué can be worn as a statement piece. In addition to tees, tanks and polos, knit tops come in a wide assortment that includes different lengths, hemlines and sleeve & collar styles.

Some of the current design elements that were highlighted in the recently unveiled Spring/Summer collections included sheer looks, ruffles, pleating and metallic fabrications. Cropped tops and athletic influences were also on display in collections from Balenciaga, Jill Sander, Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Versace and Prada.
