Stylish Summer Sweaters

Summer in England is always unpredictable, but one thing I’ve found in my travels this season is that the weather for Summer 2013 is pretty unpredictable everywhere. It’s hard to know what to wear when the temperature is constantly varying by dozens of degrees. Thank goodness there are so many stylish sweaters and cardigans in fashion this year. Soft unstructured jackets, waterfall cardigans and bright boleros mean you can be fashionable and comfortable whatever the weather throws at you. Here are some of my favourites:

This colourful floral blazer from Anthropologie reminds me of paintings by Monet.

April Anthropologie Jacket
It works really well with a simple white top. For the smart casual look pictured at the top of this post, I chose a navy tank. Although the jacket is an investment piece, any of the colours in it would be a great contrast in a tank top or t-shirt to wear underneath giving you lots of variety for a relatively low cost.

I couldn’t resist this turquoise, royal and yellow cardigan, also from Anthropologie.

Blue and Yellow Cardigan

I adore the colours in this piece and the funky retro pattern gets me compliments every time.

A patterned waterfall cardigan in two of my favourite colours pairs with a matching tank, both from Chico’s.

I shopped my closet for this next look from last year’s Tommy Bahama collection.

A waterfall cardigan is flattering whatever your shape and wide straps on the cute tank top mean that you can remove the cardigan with confidence if things do warm up. White jeans are perfect for summer and help to keep the look fresh.

Regardless of what the weather is, you can’t go wrong if you have a stylish summer sweater or two in your wardrobe. Add a couple of tanks and tees and you’ll get lots of looks even on a budget. Shop your wardrobe or treat yourself to one of the myriad sweaters and cardigans on offer at every price point this season. There really is something for everyone.

  1. The cardigans are great (I’m a cardi addict as I’m always chilly in air-conditioned spaces) but can I just say how much I LOVE your hall???

  2. Love the anthropologie blazer! You look lovely.

    Have a great week!


  3. Love the waterfall style and all the prints. Cardis are so versatile. Love to travel with them.

  4. Thanks so much, I was looking for some ideas for summer sweaters when it gets cold at night.

    All of them look expensive and luxurious. Especially the flower print one and the blue one. But I like the one with stripes the most.

    You got good picks. Thanks!
