Today, I wanted to share my favorite casual knit looks from the past. These are all styles that work wonderfully for shopping, or just visiting friends. Cute looks like these three are actually my favorite ones to create: they’re the kind of outfits that can be worn pretty much anywhere on an ordinary day, and they add a lot of fun to said ordinary days.
For the first of today’s casual knit looks, I picked a style with a simple dress, and a show-stopping top. This Raglan Top is our most deceptive knitting pattern. It looks like a pretty basic ribbed sweater, but withholds many unique features. It sports button details on the raglan seams, an asymmetric collar, and a hi-lo hem. I love-love-love this pattern, and was thinking about making another variation of it for large needle size.
For this look, I paired The Raglan Top with our Jersey Dress. A basic dress works beautifully with an eye-catching top, and feels comfortable to wear. To top off this look, I wore wedge heels embellished with silver skulls.
This look is my favorite of this bunch. I chose our Chunky Seed Stitch Shrug for this style, and wore it over a cute and comfy look. The Shrug hides our Spaghetti Strap Top worn over a long-sleeved mesh top. I wore our Crinkle Skirt with this look, and paired it with a lace petticoat for a more romantic vibe. Double buns and black pearls give this lovely look an even more feminine feel.
Despite so many layers and details, this look is surprisingly comfortable. There’s nothing constricting in it, and the whole ensemble is really warm. It’s perfect for those cold winter days!
The last of our casual knit looks is the most casual of the bunch. I wore our Faux Cable Shrug over our Jersey Dress to achieve a simple, elegant, and super-comfy look. I totally succeeded in the comfy-department!
This is the kind of style I most often go for. With very little moving parts, this outfit is easy and comfy to wear. It’s simple enough to wear around the house, and put-together enough to run errands in. The Shrug gives it a surprising amount of warmth, and also adds a touch of color to the otherwise dark look.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s casual knit looks!
Until next time.
