It's Always Sweater Weather

We’ve all been there. In fact, this particular problem tends to happen every year without fail. It’s the first properly hot day of the year – finally. You’ve been out all day and have reached that pleasant level of ever-subtle perspiration. You’ve even treated yourself to a frozen yoghurt / iced coffee / insert cold treat here. You've also got a small tan, how delightful. Evening arrives and you decide that your newly bronzed self should go out bare-armed, naturally. And naturally, you are a shivering mess come sundown.

The problem is, of course, that you forgot to bring a sweater. And perhaps the issue we’re all guilty of is that we over-associate knitwear with winter and neglect to embrace the transitional summer sweater.

There’s something inherently elegant about the summer sweater. It requires a balanced blend (such as our cash-silk), the right weight and it evokes that sought-after look of effortless together-ness that some ladies seem to possess.

Timeless style icons in the vein of Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn knew the virtues of the summer sweater, as seen in their many jet-set photos. Whether you wear it, tie it around your waist or shoulders, or use it as a blanket a la BB (above), the summer sweater is a beloved between-season style solution.
