Sleeveless sweaters also nick named tank tops are not as common as sweaters but they are still very stylish, you can get them in a crew or V-neck too, one of my favourite types of sleeveless jumpers are cricket knit wear in a stylish cream with a colour full knitted neck line, they are also stylish during the warmer months, they look stylish with trousers or jeans even chinos, they to also come in many different styles and fabrics, one of the best stylish looks with a sleeveless sweater is pairing it with tweed blazer in a V-neck.

Roll neck sweaters are one of my favourites they are also called turtle necks or polo neck sweaters, the origins are not quit clear where this design came from, but they have been worn by fishermen and the British navy, a roll-neck is essentially a sweater but with a close-fitting round high collar that folds over, they became stylish in France due to French philosophers wearing them, they became a hit in the US as a part of the preppy style amongst students, roll-necks became famous for bucking the trend where men went to restaurants wearing this item in stead of a tie, they also make the wearer look very masculine, you can wear a roll-neck for work and then afterwards slip on a blazer and make it look very dressy.

The V-neck cardigan is another type of knitted garment, it gets its name from a James Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, he wore a knitted waistcoat during the Crimean war, a cardigan is like a sweater the only difference is it has an opening on the front usually with buttons but some have stylish toggles on the front, the cut and design creates a V-neck shape that’s very chic and stylish, they also come in many different materials and patterns, they are great for creating a sartorial layering effect. cardigans are more stylish in plain colours and patterns but you can choose what you want.

So you now know what stylish knit wear is, and some of the major pieces you should have in your wardrobe, the question your now asking is what should I have in my wardrobe, to me you should have at least five pieces in your wardrobe and they are.

  • Two sweaters in a V-neck or crew neck the colours I would choose is medium grey and a navy both are neutral colours and would look good with jeans or trousers.
  • V-neck cardigan in a stylish black this is a great piece to wear to the office, and you can wear it under a blazer giving you a classy layering look.
  • A classy sleeveless sweater in a vivid colour like an electric purple, a tank can be worn with a oxford shirt then add some dressy chinos finished off with a bow tie you have the preppy look.
  • The final piece that you need is the stylish Shawl neck cardigan, they are truly the most stylish piece of knit wear ever invented, if you want to dress down, you simply wear a T-shirt and some indigo jeans add the shawl neck cardigan your looking stylish and dressed down.

Like with all clothing if you want to look stylish in your knit wear, you need to know how to mix it with your exciting wardrobe. so I’ve included some street style pictures to give you some ideas and food for thought.
