During colder weather we often find ourselves feeling a lot like Goldilocks as you want something warm, but at the same time you don’t want something too warm so that you have to wear layers of clothing in case you end up too hot and need to start shedding some of those layers. The short sleeve sweater is the perfect solution to this problem and is a great way to incorporate lots of alternative options for warmer weather. To give you an idea of some great ways to incorporate short sleeve sweaters into your wardrobe, here are a few examples of great short sleeve sweaters that will help add that versatility into your cold weather wardrobe and frankly many can even work in warmer weather too.
Cardigans and wraps are ever popular this season and for good reason. They are great layering pieces and have really become main stream as a basic long sleeve top. Many modern cardigans feature long sleeves and now range from heavy sweaters to light weight knits. Consider the Rumba Puff Sleeve Cardigan / Wrap from Laurie B. The Rumba short sleeve sweater is a great example of a short sleeve sweater that we wear year round. It works great over long sleeve tops in the winter and over tanks and short sleeve tops in the spring and summer months. We love the shorter length in the back and the longer flared front. Of course another great touch is the puff sleeves that give this sweater a unique feminine look.
Another great short sleeve cardigan is the Cotton Bamboo Cardigan by Splendid. This cardigan is long and features a more classic, traditional cardigan look. The distinction for this short sleeve sweater is the great navy blue color and the contrasting white stitching design that complements the front and a pattern in the back. This cardigan features front pockets and slightly gathered sleeves for added detail. A great versatile piece again this cardigan can be worn over long sleeves in the winter and over short sleeves in the summer.
We love the distinctive elements on the Cotton Bamboo Cardigan and another example of a short sleeve sweater with similar attention to details and a third distinctive short sleeve sweater style is the Venice Keyhole Back Sweater by Laurie B. Featuring lots of details including the layered keyhole back, the flared short sleeve, and the fitted waist in back giving it an added twist this top looks fairly standard from the front, but as you can see the back is loaded with detail. The fabric is a cashmere blend and also feels very soft. Of course our favorite piece of this sweater is the surprise details in back that really do make this sweater a perfect statement piece and certainly something you won’t find every day.
As you can see from these great examples of unique styles for short sleeve sweaters that you really can find a lot of stylish, versatile options for short sleeve sweaters that can work in your wardrobe practically all year round.
