  • 40’s era knit tops and shirts: Nautical-inspired, short sleeve sweaters are a timeless staple of 1940s women’s knit tops. Pintuck detailing, flutter sleeves, and embroidered collars were becoming all the rage during this era. 

  • 50’s era knit tops and shirts: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and the halter top has been stealing hearts ever since. This is the fashion era when Peter Pan collars and fitted button-up blouses first made their debut! In the 50s, darling cutouts, plaid shirts, bateau necklines, sweetheart silhouettes, and pussybow neck ties all challenged the status quo in women’s fashion.

  • 60’s era knit tops and shirts: In the 1960’s, cottagecore smocked tops became mainstream, and sleeveless button-up tops, and short sleeve cardigans were all the rage! Tie-waist knit tops in bold geometric prints hit the runaway, and tie-neck knit tops won many a heart. 

  • 70’s era knit tops and shirts: Sassy knit surplice tops, striped knit tops, woven button-up blouses, and swishy tunics can be traced back to the 1970s fashion era. Gingham print shirts, baseball tees with elbow-length sleeves, long sleeve tees, and bold floral prints joined the revolution in casual tops and knits. Sleeveless knit tops and short sleeve sweaters became a mainstay for shirts in the 70’s, and button-up tops were often adorned with flare sleeves, pintuck detailing, and beautiful embroidery. 

  • 80’s era knit tops and shirts:  Vibrant polo shirts, henley tops, peplum tops, and collared button-ups went to the next level in the 1980’s, and knit tops with dolman sleeves were all the rage. Graphic t-shirts became ultra-cool, and puff sleeves became a wardrobe staple! Bold neon prints and short sleeve button-up tops were everywhere and Peter Pan collars made a major comeback. 

  • 90’s era knit tops and shirts:  It was all about the bare midriff during the 1990s fashion era, so knit crop tops and cropped tank tops made a major comeback. Graphic tees, Over-the-shoulder tops became a mainstay in casual nineties shirts and tops, and mock neck tops got lots of love too. Sheer and mesh shirts hit the runway in the 90’s, and plaid button-up tops were everywhere. When your wardrobe craves a ModCloth knit top, indulge it with knit from our curated assortment of cute tops. Be it a pretty peplum, puff sleeve top , blouse, a super-cute cardigan, a staple tunic, or any style in between, our knit tops satisfy with details and silhouettes that cater directly to your palate!
