Perfect Knit Crop Top
There is nothing as quite satisfying as finding the perfect seasonal transitional piece and this knit crop top from For Love and Lemons is just that. The fit is amazing and the fabric isn’t too heavy or too light; making it a great choice for the less cool last days of winter and the beginning of spring.
I have a special love for good quality cable knit sweater tops. I was immediately attracted to this top when I first saw it online. It is best to pair this type of knit crop top with something a little more minimal, so it’s not overshadowed. What’s great about this sweater is that it’s suitable for an evening of lounging or a day out and about.
I personally have worn it to a family friend dinner and paired it with high –waist black trousers and a pair of pumps to dress it up.
