The Underrated Summer Staple We’re Buying in Bulk
Just because the weather is warming up doesn’t mean you can’t wear sweaters anymore. After all, sweater vests and cropped knits provide plenty of ventilation. It’s also prime time for short-sleeve cardigans.
The cardigan is an essential layering tool in fall and winter. The shorter-sleeve versions provide the same type of service once the temps go above 60. They even work as swimsuit cover-ups.
Many of these cardis are cropped. But don’t worry about exposing too much flesh. Simply slip a tee or tank underneath. (A handful even come with matching tops.) You can also rock them solo. Especially when wearing jeans or slouchy trousers.
