Signature Look: Lightweight Summer Knitwear

John Smedley

One of my signature summer looks is lightweight knitwear. It was basically all I lived in during London Collections: Men this week.  My love for this simple look comes from the fact it is easy to wear, is a great crossover look merging smart and casual and is comfortable enough even in warm weather.

The good news for me is that both the high street and designers have really embraced this material for SS14.  You will find lightweight knits in polo shirts and t-shirts sitting as part of most menswear collections.  I have selected a few of my picks from the styles available right now.  I think subliminally I may have given away a clue to my favourite colour of the season too.
