Summer Sweaters…No Sweat

As we reach the hottest month of the year, considering sweaters as a fashion choice does not seem too appealing…but think again. There are several reasons to love summer sweaters. First…they are almost exclusively 100% cotton which is very breathable and breathable equals less sweat. After 50, less sweat is a biggie!!! Second…a sweater can make shorts or a pair of jeans look more chic. Third…it’s a great change from the endless t-shirts that seem to be the go-to choice during the summer months. Last but not least…when the temperatures get cooler, layer with a jean jacket or blazer and they work for the fall and winter months. Word of advice…take great care of them. We recommend dry cleaning over hand washing. This retains the shape and weave of the garment.

There are two things we really love about this sweater (unfortunately no longer available but here is a similar option)….the color and the side tie detail. Most sweaters are a solid color so a touch of interest make it stand out. This outfit is perfect for lunch to date night or anything in between. The sweater looks great with these fresh hem jeans but would work with regular denim, tailored slacks or shorts. The gold sandals look great but other choices could be heels, wedges or sneakers. Get creative…anything goes!

The ability to pair this sweater with the full color spectrum makes it (or anything similar) a wardrobe absolute must. We love the look with the paint splatter jeans but try it with regular denim, shorts, slacks or a skirt. The neck and armhole detail is really pretty (a little difficult to see in these pictures due to the light color but the merchant website shows it off beautifully) and adds that pop of interest that any outfit needs. Have fun with it…let your creative juices flow.
