During the summer I like to stick with shorts and dresses, so I find that throwing on a summer cardigan is a really easy way to change up my basic look. I usually find myself gravitating towards the light cotton, oversized sweaters after a long day at the beach. I’ve found that the open-knit and drape cardigans can be great for wearing to special events. Here, I’ve put together some of my favorite sweaters and cardigans that keep the madness (and heat!) of summer in mind by being both pretty and practical.
