A Basic Guide To Wearing Knitwear With Shirts

We can all agree that it's hard to be a fan of knitwear in our slice of the tropics. Aside from the not-so-ideal climate, you don't want to be that guy who wears "cold weather" outfits in this wretched heat. Pick the right ensemble, however, and you've got a look that can transcend the seasons. Here are some of your options:

The V-Neck Cardigan
Made from soft Cashmilon fabric, the v-neck is a timeless knit that you can wear all year-round. Wear it over a collared shirt and you're good for any occasion.

The Seasonal Sweater
If you're looking for a more traditional color, you can wear a dark green top and layer it with this red llama sweater.

The Textured Knit
Having a complex knit texture is key if you want to look smart when layering with a knit. Made with pure cotton, you can dress it up with a pique polo or a tee.

The visually striking "ladder stitch" is a favorite for the sartorially inclined. Accent it with an equally bold print, like a checkered shirt-peeking out from underneath.

Thinking of something more casual? Lose the layers for once. Keep jumper detailing to a minimal and go for something as comfortable as this cotton textured jumper.

If you want something that would add a smart finish to your look, don't be afraid to go for a printed jumper. A plain polo shirt underneath should be able to neutralize the bold pattern.
