This is the fourth installment of my Summer Must-Have series. These are modern, versatile items that will carry you through the Summer. Check out previous posts: Nude shoes, Striped dress, Light colored jeans.
A sweater may seem like the last thing you need during the Summer but whether you live in a place with mild Summers, cool nights, or blasting air conditioning, having a lightweight sweater comes in handy. You’ll want to choose fabrics and colors that are light and comfortable so you don’t overheat or look out-of-place. In locations like Seattle where the temperature stays in the 60s and 70s, you’ll get a lot of wear with these chic sweaters:
Armani Exchange Cardigan
This is a lightweight cardigan perfect for throwing on over a tank top or Summer dress. It comes in several fun colors with contrasting back. My favorite is the citron which goes well with blues, mint, grey and browns.
TopShop Mint Mesh Sweater
This sweater is pretty thick but the bright colors and light neutral beige make it a Summer appropriate sweater. Throw on a pair of light-colored jeans or pants, a casual sandal and you’re good to go.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Animal Print Sweater
I’m not usually a fan of animal print but this light grey cheetah pattern is modern, simple and perfect for the Summer. It’s an easy way to add interest to your outfit and the grey/white combo makes it a neutral that can go with any color in your closet. Add a pair of jeans or a pencil skirt and you have an easy Summer outfit.
