Knits: Warm weather knits are loosely woven, to help you stay cool. These loopy yarns can get snagged by your watch, longer earrings, bracelets, or even a fingernail. You may find yourself disengaging your accessories from your clothing and disappointed by the appearance of “pulls” you can’t immediately fix.
Snazzy Suggestion: When you find “the” summer sweater in the store, take a moment to think about where you’ll be wearing it and what accessories you may want to add. Will it withstand the wear and tear of your life? If not, look for a similar style in a stronger knit. (You can also take your Snag Nab-It tool with you – they are available for around $3 in your local fabric store.)
Try before you buy is great advice when it comes to clothes – you can save money and fashion frustration.
