These Lightweight Knits Are Made For Summer Lovin'

If these don’t scream, “SUMMER!” we don’t know what does.

Anyone who thinks that sweaters are meant for freezing temps can go stand over there. In the corner. With my kids who are also in a time-out. Because this simply is not the truth. That’s right, I’m referring to the summer knit—that loose, lightweight sweater that is perfect for throwing over a bathing suit after a long day at the beach or pairing with cutoffs and espadrilles for a Sunday funday in the city. More elegant than a sweatshirt but less cumbersome than a jacket, the summer knit is the answer to your solstice layering prayers.

And there’s more: This knit is not exclusive to long-sleeved sweaters. Below we’ve rounded up plenty of those, as well as halter tops, dresses, cardigans and even an apron vest for good measure. In soft creams and vibrant hues, these are the sweaters that you should be cozying up to this summer.
