Generally when we think of wearing a sweater, cold winter months come to mind. However, there is such a thing as a summer sweater. Speaking from a sweater designer, trust me when I tell you they exist.

Even though its the last thing you want to wear, there are ones designed just for warmer weathers. I know. It sounds like an oxymoron!

In this outfit I’m wearing a chunky cotton pullover sweater, I designed a few years ago. Although it sounds heavy in weight, it actually is light and airy. The thick and think (known as a slub) construction of the yarn allows little air pockets to form.

The benefit of cotton fiber helps keep you cool (in temperature of course) when wearing. It has breathable and moisture-wicking characteristics. The slub yarn creates a texture to give it stitch interest. And how can you say “no” to a pop of fiery red color for summer! It’s also a perfect throw on over any bathing suit during the cool summer evenings by the beach.

I restyled the tie dye denim jeans on this post and wore them this time with a pair of suede sandals. The fringe details make this a “business in the front and party in the back” kind of shoe.

The medium stacked heel makes it easier to walk all day on. It’s so versatile! I can wear them to work with a cute summer dress or weekends hanging out with friends and family. The neutral color keeps the color balanced and lets the  bright sweater do all the talking.

Do you have a favorite summer sweater? Please do share.
