A Case for the Summer Sweater - How to Find the Perfect One

by Figandrosesblog

Are you the type of person who gets chilly in A/C, or likes to have something to cover up with just in case the night gets cool? I always bring layers even when it's in the 90s for exactly those reasons. The beach especially gets windy and cool at night once that sun goes down and your body has been warmed by it all day. I find the summer sweater comes to the rescue perfectly.

While not only being versatile, a cute summer sweater also can add a bit of chicness to any outfit. It elevates your look more than a sweatshirt and I find them more breathable than a jean jacket in summer. Here are some tips to find the perfect summer sweater:

How to find the perfect summer sweater

1 \\ Look for light and breathable fabric - open weaves will give you breathability, but also offer warmth. I also really love cotton or silk for a lightweight fabric option.

2 \\ Grab a neutral color - Neutrals go with everything. You can save packing space by only needing one sweater all summer. My top choices are white, grey, or beige.

3 \\ Choose a style that you will get the most use out of - I find pullovers to be more comfy than button downs, so I usually opt for a pullover or hoodie type sweater. Maybe you prefer the ease of a button front cardi that you don't have to pull on? Ponchos and sweater tees are a cute option too.

I found this adorable sweater on Amazon and I knew it would be the perfect summer sweater. It looks super cute paired with some denim shorts and heeled sandals for a date night. I love the belled sleeves, the ruching in front and the lightweight weave. Since it's a little looser, I like to pair with something slim fitting on the bottom like these denim shorts or skinny jeans and my favorite Tory Burch bag.
