When it comes to this time of year and the weather is getting just a little better, I love to shop for light knitwear. Knitwear, in my opinion, is certainly not just for Autumn/Winter and there are some beautiful pieces in stores right now.
I love a really light, slightly fitted knit for this time of year, something that you can easily layer with if needed. I still think that a crisp white shirt under a sweater can be so stylish and help you look polished even if you have just rolled out of bed! And if very cold, you could always pair it with a polo-neck for some warmth.
There are also so many stunning patterns to choose from that you can really put your own stamp on it and again this is a trend where you can spend a little or a lot. Personally, I think that stripes will be big this season and the one below from Chinti and Parker is bang on trend. I will say that this is somewhere that I would spend a little more on a more basic, classic piece, as if you look after your garment, knitwear can be timeless.

Irish Designed Knitwear
There are two Irish Designers in particular that I want to mention and would recommend that you check out before going to the high street. The first is Lucy Nagle whose Star print I think now is well known the Island over. And the second is Caroline Mitchell, her pieces are just stunning and timeless. We have featured both of them on Floralesque before – Lucy here and Caroline here
