The 10 best light knitwear pieces for this awkward in-between weather.

Summer is gone and we’re now in that awkward, in-between season meteorologists call ‘Autumn’.

One minute it’s freezing cold, the next we’re sweating our long-sleeved top off. Oh, and then five minutes later there’s a rainstorm to battle.

It can feel like you have to carry your entire wardrobe with you 24/7 just to be prepared for what the weather throws your way.

Unfortunately I don't control the rain clouds, but I do have a 'for-now' solution - light knitwear.

Hear me out. Warm enough to have your back when the temperature drops but not heavy enough to leave you drenched in your own sweat, it's the perfect medium piece for mild days. Plus, it's not only light to wear but also light to carry, meaning you're not burdened down with a big, heavy jumper all day.

Here are our 10 favourites in stores right now.

1. Trenery Zip Breton Knit, $149

The lightweight merino wool and the classic Breton make this an easy piece to wear every day.

2. Bella Freud Prince Cashmere Sweater, $668

Yes, the cost of this jumper is close to a month's rent (or two weeks if you live in Sydney) but it's so soft! And in millennial pink! And with a nostalgic slogan!

3. Monki Fishnet Drawstring Jumper, $69

This has actual holes to let the cool breeze in. You can wear proper clothes underneath (or show off your bra or crop top) and it has a bang on-trend athleisure feel.
