Does the term “summer sweater” sound seasonally confused to you? Well, if you’re picturing the bulky, wool pullover that keeps you toasty on a ski trip, then yes, you are correct. However, as presented by this Fashionista, sweaters can be appropriate for the summer months. This information gives those of us with a niche for layering a new found hope that this technique doesn’t have to be put away with our long johns and winter coats, come March.
This Fashionista included a summer sweater as part of her well executed outfit fit for a summer evening. It has been said that by starting with a pair of patterned shorts, all you need is a tank top and something to protect your feet and voila, an outfit. This has not only proven true, but has been expanded upon. On top of the plain tank top, throw an extra layer for added interest, and you can keep the rest of your details as simple as (or more simple than) before.
Like all good things, the summer sweater can too be done in many ways. As pictured, a crochet coat that goes down to the floor feels like nothing’s there while making a bold statement. On the other end of the spectrum lays a cropped cardigan, the perfect fit for high-waisted shorts and a crop top. Lastly, a summer sweater reminiscent of your winter one is a summer cardigan in a lightweight material.
