Proof It’s Already Sweater Weather

One of the great things about fall is getting to stock up on sweaters, coats and the like. But we’ve got news for you. You don’t have to wait until autumn to get your knit fix. Enter summer sweaters you can wear with everything from miniskirts to Bermudas. Even Angelina Jolie is getting in on the action.

A warm-weather sweater may seem like an oxymoron, but it does exist. Made of lightweight fabrics (think cotton and even linen), you won’t break a sweat in these stylish sweaters. Some of the more popular iterations include extra ventilation via perforations or due to their cropped hemlines. They also serve as great swimsuit coverups.

We’ve been encouraging you to brush up on your layering skills and summer sweaters are one reason why we’re pushing so hard. They’re the perfect canvas for fall since you can add layers on top or underneath. So they’re more than just one-season wonders.
