With the weather up to all sorts, it’s been difficult to know what to wear over the past few weeks. With our Autumn/Winter 2011 sale offering a warm option for colder days, an introduction of Spring/Summer styles indicate John Smedley’s Sea Island Cotton will soon be the knitwear of choice. With this, I thought it was about time to talk about what looks are going to be a hit for Spring/Summer 2012.
Guys will be shying away from plunging necklines with round necks making a BIG come back. Our extra-fine New Zealand Merino wool sweater ‘Lyndhurst’ is the perfect answer to this trend, soon to be available in a wide range of colours. To take on this trend and make it an even bigger hit wear in Spring Summer 12’s hottest colours, pastel blues, creams and pinks.
For women, a trend of contouring in knitwear with strategically placed stripes and motifs help to accentuate and flatter the figure. Our striped sweaters which are soon to launch see varied stripe detail which create visual interest and compliment the figure beautifully.
Lace is also big for 2012 not only in knitwear but footwear and accessories. A range of styles in the new collection offer a feminine alternative to knitwear with lace placement adding beautiful detail to classic styles that have been bought bang up to date.
Be sure to keep an eye out on the website for the rest of the Spring/Summer 2012 to go live!
