Spring Knits For Women

*This blog post contains affiliate links. You can read more here.*

Spring often makes you think of losing the heavy chunky neutral knits in favour of more colourful lightweight knits.

But if like me you’re not really into wearing bright statement pieces, I have looked for spring knits to share with you that are in colours of browns, creams and greens.

The beautiful pieces in this post are classic timeless knits that will go with anything you feel like wearing.

The warming accessories in neutral colours are great no-brainers for wearing with jeans, boots and light spring jackets.
