Woah! Sitting Down ‘Coz The Barely-There Sweater Trend Is Making Us Weak In The Knees

Call it the barely-there sweater, the bolero knit or arm warmer, the fashion forecast remains the same—this micro trend ought to be on your radar for winter. Forgoing the body, read the knit detail that covers the chest and the back in a sweater, the offering deals with only sleeves (yes, you read that right) and that’s exactly what’s so eye-catching about it. For those of you still on the fence about this up and coming styling idea, you will want to take note of your favourite Bollywood+ Hollywood celebrities who have already dipped their toes in the micro trend a couple of seasons back. 

Barely There Sweater: The ‘IT’ Trend

Barely-there sweater- micro trend for winter


Mostly veering towards a polo neck style, the barely-there sweater style is one that you can wear in a plethora of ways; keep it casual with a comfy cami top or layer it atop a knit of choice to cosy up for winter! Of course, there was no forgetting the style notes from celebrities and so we picked out some dependable tips for acing the micro trend.

Add Some Colour

Janhvi Kapoor's neon barely-there sweater


Perhaps the first from Bollywood to try out this new look on our radar, Janhvi Kapoor’s neon iteration from Black-owned label Wesley Harriott stole the show last year. Styled by Mohit Rai, the actress worked her vibrant pick with a crop top and a body-hugging skirt, a versatile outfit to bookmark ASAP for socially-distanced meet-ups and Zoom calls alike (before winter hits in full swing). Don’t forget to add a swipe of that striking lip colour as well!

Keeping It Casual

Towards a more casual note was Disha Patani’s bolero sweater that incorporated a blink-and-miss logo detail on the front and came with a classic crew neck. Teamed with a pair of printed trousers, the actress’s look is best-suited for an outing during the transitional weather. For those who like to opt for chunkier knits, there’s always the alternative of indulging in cable and bobble knits along with other techniques for colder weather. 

Going-out Fit


It’s not just Bollywood celebrities who have the hots for this in-vogue sweater trend. Well ahead of the curve, Kylie Jenner wore hers in a pristine white colour, teamed impeccably with all-black co-ords to make for the ideal going-out look. There’s a reason neutral tones are deemed timeless!

Now that you are in on this ‘IT’ trend, how about making it work for those virtual meets during the in-between weather and winter alike?
