Knit tops are a staple garment of clothing, being functional, versatile, and fashionable. Made of fabric which will stretch, knit tops will form to the shape of your body and your movements. Knit tops are made for all seasons and occasions, you’ll always find cheap knit tops in various styles. The first hand-knitted tops were the 'gansey' or 'jersey' worn by sailors mid 19th century. By the end of the 19th century, fashionable clothing became relaxed as outdoor and leisure pursuits grew in popularity and knitted underwear transformed into outer-wear. The masculine 'sweater' was adopted by women’s fashion for their sports. The 'bloomer,'a fitted knit top, formed an outfit which gave unprecedented freedom of movement. Evolving forms of knit tops became symbolic of their time. During the 1920s and 1930s, key events influenced the sweater in women’s fashion, like Coco Chanel's infamous use of knitted jersey fabric for relaxed but sophisticated style; the Fair Isle patterned pullover knit top worn by the Prince of Wales; and Elsa Schiaparelli's famous hand-knitted sweaters. Tailored hand knits of wartime thrift; the glamorous styles and provocative image of the Hollywood 'sweater girls' of the 1940s; golfing argyle-patterns and the twin set of classic sophistication have all become standards for women’s knit tops. The black polo-neck sweater of the avant-garde, the beatnik's 'sloppy Joe' mohair sweater of the 50s and the ravaged punk knit top of the 70s have also become iconic.
