Fashionable Sweaters for Summer

by Anna P. | June 22nd, 2012 | Women's Fashion

Sweaters are essential components in any fashionable wardrobe. You can wear sweaters by themselves or over your favorite tops and dresses.  You could dress them with jeans, pencil skirts, or basic trousers.  Why save sweaters for fall and winter? Here are some must-have styles you should stock up on now.

1- V-Neck Pullover Sweaters

The v-neck sweater is perhaps one of the most flattering styles. A chic v-neck elongates the neck and slims the upper body. You can stock up on a variety of styles and colors like black, brown, red, green, pink, and more. You can never have too many of these classics.

2- Striped Sweaters

Summer is the season of preppy chic, and you can’t get more preppy than with a striped sweater. Stock up on various styles in cool color combos like navy and white, pink  and silver, and green and white. If you’re worried that horizontal stripes will make you look fat, you could choose v-neck styles.

3- Light Cardigan

If you love the cardigan style, you’ll want to buy a few chic sweaters that you can wear with crisp tees, sundresses, fitted rompers, and other summer essentials.  Light cardigans make terrific alternatives to jackets and blazers. Purchase one in a classic shade like white or grey, and another in a fun color like lavender or rose.
