In my part of the world, it’s hot. Really hot. It’s been hot for months. And while most people don’t think to layer in summer, I’ve found that open cardigans are a year-round staple. Of course in the rare occurrence of me playing in the sun in my current city, the cardigan comes off. But the other 98% of the time when I’m out but indoors at a restaurant, retail store, or grocer, perhaps, the cardigan does its job of keeping me just warm enough to be comfortable. For those who live in a city that actually has cool mornings or nights or breezes, the open cardi becomes a practical topper piece for any look. Choose a loose-fitting cardigan in a light, breathable fabric, and you too will reap the benefits.
My collage features a beautiful open cardigan style jacket that completes this trendy nightlife ensemble. Although it’s made from airy silk, I still like the idea of wearing it with a thin tank so I’d have no excuse to take it off. And the best part is it can be dressed up and down, and utilized across the seasons.
