Sweaters in the Summer?

Posted in Fashionistas by Sarah on August 13, 2010

Let’s face it, it’s been a hot summer for most of you.

Most days all you want is ice cold water, watermelon, or ice cream.  Or all three at once!

But for those of you who work in an office, or those of us living in San Francisco (where it’s been a miserable 58 degrees most days), you may be freezing during the workday!

In fact, your boss may have offered you a Snuggie because, regardless of the weather outside, the office is a veritable icebox.

I say:  Resist the Snuggie!  Request cashmere instead. 😉

Seriously, even during summer months you may find a need for a sweater that you can wear around the office.   You’d like to not be freezing, but you’d also like to look like a grown-up, thankyouverymuch.

I’ve collected a few sweaters that I thought might do the trick to keep you cozy but not looking like an infomercial.  In my opinion, cashmere is the best to strike this balance.  But, it’s not always “in season,” or in budget, so the collection includes a little of everything.

Here’s a pretty little cashmere sweater from J.Crew that can keep you lookin pulled together.

Or you could try a White & Warren Cashmere Twist Top (not pictured) or this one, that’s on sale!

Nightfall Cardigan by Modcloth


Or go a little ruffly with the Modcloth Nightfall Cardigan, or this beautiful Subra Sweater by All Saints (shown below)

BR's Hidden Placket Sweater

I also love this long buttoned cardigan from BR (shown on the right), which looks lightweight and perfectly packable for your summer tote!

Here are a few more sweaters I found that are reasonably priced and office appropriate

Anthropologie's Outdoor Cafe Wrap

Taupe Couture Cape

Kimono Wrap from Arden B.

Metallic Cardi from J.Crew (for more casual offices)
