It’s that time of year when everything becomes transitional. Basically, it’s too warm for your winter pieces and too cold for your spring/summer pieces. Great. That said, a few items in the modern wardrobe stand out as bastions of year-long effectiveness. The best of the lot — in our opinion — are light sweaters.
Simple, effective, and versatile, light sweaters are applicable to every season, making them one of the best things to invest in. Whether you’re sporting it as a mid-layer for the coming weeks or whether it becomes your only line of protection during summer, there are no seasons when the humble crewneck sweater is not a staple.
With the help of Farfetch, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best light sweaters that we’re trusting to carry us into the warmer climes and beyond, finally descending into winter again with our trusty crewneck in hand to complete the loop.
