OOTD: How to Wear a Summer Sweater

Summer Sweater
A light-weight sweater worn with shorts makes for a perfect casual combo. Instantly turn it into a summer night’s party outfit by pairing it with pumps or wedges and your favorite bling (of course ;)).

A few tips on finding a summer sweater:

  • Choose a light-weight fabric.
  • Go for a light color such as white or a bright summer shade (pink and yellow are great choices).
  • Short sleeved sweaters with an open-weave are obviously more suited for warmer weather. A longer sleeve may work better for a cool summer night.
