Howdy and Happy Monday! We made it through another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! THANK YOU to everyone who supported me by starting your shopping right here on my site. Now on to today’s riveting conversation. You may be thinking… a sweater and shorts... in the summer?! I know it seems crazy, but think about how many times you go from 100 degree weather into a freezing air conditioned building and wish you had warmer clothes! This is why I am going to tell you how I wear a sweater and shorts in the summer. A sweater look is perfect for shopping, going to the movies, or even sitting inside a restaurant. Let’s look at how to style your favorite sweater for a chic summer look.
How to Wear a Sweater and Shorts in the Summer
If you want to wear a sweater in the summer without sweating to death, then you need the perfect lightweight sweater. A cardigan is an especially great option because you can easily put it on or take it off depending on the climate. I love this crewneck cardigan because of the 3/4 length sleeves and cotton blend material. It comes in several colors. If you want a similar patterned sweater like I’m wearing above, then I recommend this animal print cashmere cardigan or this heart print cardigan. Another option is to wear this short-sleeved sweater (comes in 13 colors and is on SALE) for an extra layer of warmth.
I also love Sail to Sable sweaters! I wore one on my Disney trip HERE. Typically I wear a blouse underneath the sweater so that I can easily take it off and tie it around my shoulders for two cute options depending on the weather. Note, I’m wearing the sweater with shorts on that trip in February. Clearly, I do this often…
A tip for wearing a sweater in the summer is to pair it with shorts or a skirt. This still gives your sweater look a summer vibe. I love wearing these girlfriend shorts because of the length and comfort. They are my absolute favorite shorts. I own them in three different colors! Right now they are on major SALE. In Texas we wear shorts through October, so you still have another 2-3 months of shorts season.
Below are all my favorite sweaters and shorts for summer. Anyone else get chilly in a cold room? xoxo – Tanya
