earlier this summer, we devoted an entire week to my search for the perfect summer dresses. just like summer dresses, i’m always on the hunt for summer tops. unlike dresses, separates are versatile, so it’s easy to mix and match for endless outfits all summer long. this week, we’re talking my favorite summer tops. each day, we’ll feature a top i’m loving with some inspiration on how to style it.
today, we’re featuring a three quarter sleeve sweater from Nordstrom. the colors and stripes make for a bold, standout piece that pair perfectly with these kiki ballet flats. we’re loving color and bold patterns this summer, offset by a solid neutral base. i’ve paired this sweater with a denim pencil skirt (and here), but this sweater would work just as well with a pair of shorts.
wear a sweater during the summer? obviously depends on where you live, but this three quarter sleeve sweater is airy enough to wear comfortably in the southern heat, particularly when paired with a skirt like today’s.
we’ve talked—and continue to talk—about how to wear denim this summer. i’ve pulled in a white denim skirt today (and here). i love white as a neutral base, particularly in the summer. it’s flexible and can virtually be paired with anything: a tee, blouse, button-up, or sweater. and although i don’t wear as much denim during the summer as other seasons, you just can’t go wrong with a denim skirt. it’s durable and flexible giving you endless possibilities to mix and match.
