As we head into the latter half of the season and temperatures start to dip when the sun goes down, summer sweaters (yes, that’s a thing!) become a wardrobe essential. Check out Fashion Fabrics Club’s recommendations on what lightweight fabrics to use to make the best sweaters for summer.
The Long Cardigan
Perfect for taking you from summer to fall, a long cardigan in a lightweight sweater knit makes for the perfect top layer on cooler summer days and a cozy addition to a fall ensemble.
The Cropped Sweater
The crop top trend shows no signs of stopping, and it’s showing up in sweater form as we head into the new season. For something you can start wearing right now, opt for a lightweight ribbed sweater knit like this ruffle-embellished button-up here. It’s the perfect mix of warm and cool for getting through in-between season.
The Loose Knit
This sweater combines breezy airiness with cozy comfort thanks to a loose sweater knit that teases a little skin exposure. This is just the thing to transform your tank-and-jeans summer look into a fall-ready ensemble.
The Short Sleeved Sweater
If you’re not ready to dive into long sleeves quite yet (no judgement here), go for the short sleeved draped sweater in a loose sweater knit. It offers a little layer of warmth, but has enough slouch and openness to keep things airy and light.
The V-Neck Sweater
An essential year round, the V-neck sweater makes for the perfect piece for transitioning from summer to fall. In luxe cashmere, it’s at the same time lightweight and extremely cozy—a major win for battling the temperamental late summer weather.
