Sleeveless Sweaters are my Summertime Saviors

It’s always so bitter sweet when summer starts to come to a close. I know I’ll miss the warm days spent swimming and evenings having BBQs and dinners al fresco. But I also know it means fall is coming and as an Autumn baby the season of pumpkins, colorful foliage, sweaters and boots is by far my favorite. But before we can jump into crisp-cool air and warm cups of cider we need to talk about the in between season. Flummer (fall and summer) is the weird period that occurs between summer and before the cooler temps of fall. The biggest question: what does one wear? Well, I’ve found the perfect solution: the sleeveless sweater aka the sweater tank.


I mean, it’s perfect for this time of year am I right? You can get that sweater fix without the long sleeves and the sweat part. Best of all? If you get one in a classic color (meaning try to steer clear of corals and pastels) you can make this piece work for your wardrobe year round.

I’ve been noticing this trend here and there all summer long in classy creams and nudes and while I did try a few on I couldn’t pull the trigger. It may have to do with the fact that I own far too many white tops or it could just be that the ones I tried just weren’t impressive enough… Either way it was good I waited to stumble across this dark blue beauty with a front knot by Alice and Olivia. The deep color is perfect to take into fall and it is just so on trend right now with the cropped tied up waist! I’ve already styled it with dark blue denim and cognac here. And now I’ve found another great way to style it and get some extra wear out of my lace white skirt.

I completed the outfit with my favorite new leopard slides (are you sick of hearing about these shoes yet? Ha), a velvety deep blue cross body bag, and my favorite suede moto jacket. The perfect outfit for this funny in-between weather that has me feeling cool and comfortable while also feeding my need to start wearing fall clothes.

I’ve linked a few other sleeveless knit favorites for you as well. Stay cool in this heat my friends. Xo, jules
