Sweaters for summer

Sweaters for summer? I know you must be thinking that I am nuts, but hear me out. Light weight, breezy sweaters are perfect for summer outings and layering for summer nights. I am also really digging sweater vests for summer, such an easy way to look chic. This 1×1 Pocket Cardigan by Splendid is cute, this picture shows how it could work well for a cooler summer night. It would also be great for day with a short sleeve shirt, bermuda shorts, chunky necklace, and metallic strappy sandals. Love this look!

Another great way to make sweater work for summer is to do something really sheer, then put on a bright tank top underneath it. I like the Textured Rib LS Hoodie by Splendid for this look. It would be great over a swimsuit, or even with something warmer underneath it for cooler weater.

Another great light weight summer sweater option is the Loose Knit 3/4 Sleeve Tie Hoodie by Splendid. I love the oatmeal color and the sleeve length is perfect for warmer weather. The banded bottom with tie gives this sweater a more casual laid back look which pairs perfectly for summer.

Splendid’s Stripes

Stripes are everywhere this season, from handbags to blouses, stripes are making a fashion statement for spring and summer. Most women{myself included} probably have heard at some point that wearing stripes horizontally makes your body look wider. This is false! Well, let me clarify that, some stripes may do that, but not most. Focus on a great fit and stripes that hit your body in the right area and stripes can actually make you look smaller! That’s right, you heard me, they can actually make you look slimmer. Now that I have your attention, look at these Splendid tops that are perfect and striped! This lightweight 4 Band Long sleeve Boatneck Top by Splendid is ultra comfortable and perfect for the transition from winter to spring to summer.

Next is the super cute Navy Slub Shadow Waist Tie Top by Splendid. I love the long fit of this shirt, which makes it perfect for a casual swimsuit cover up all well. I also think this shirt would be great with bermuda shorts and metallic sandals. This top is also available in a cheery red and navy stripe.

This 2×1 White Stripe Hoodie by Splendid {these people know their stripes!} is a great fit with a banded bottom, which is always figure flattering and buttons down the front that would be great open to show off a cute tank underneath. The 3/4 length sleeves are ideal for the weather right now and the hood adds a bit of a fun, casual vibe to this top.

Lastly, look at the Variegated Stripe Loose Jersey Wrap by {you guessed it} Splendid. I loved the variegated stripes on this wrap, and wraps are so great because they can be worn with so many different things for so many different looks. With the economy how it is, it is nice to have something that can really work for casual, dressed up, or even a cover up.
