Knits in summer? That’s right, sweaters needn’t be quite so, uh, sweaty, thanks to lightweight yarns and loosely spun fabrics. But what about fashion’s love affair with functional outdoor gear, is it more than just a fling? It is, according to Chris Elvidge, Marketing Editor at Mr. Porter. “It’s the perfect vehicle for bright colour and an easier way to get in on the neon trend,” he says.
In short, chunky trainers, small bags, tech fabric and a measured dose of Day-Glo will keep you on the stylish side of practical (and comfortable) this spring.
