Cute Outfit for Summer
Summer is almost over so let’s pack in as many cute summer outfits in as we can! Even though today (Labor Day) marks the last day of summer, Autumn officially begins on September 22nd. This means there is still plenty of time to wear your favorite sandals, shorts, eyelet dresses and bright flirty skirts.
In today’s summer outfit, I wanted to share a cute and comfortable way to wear printed shorts and a sweater. I remember wearing shorts with a sweater during high school while attending Friday night football games. I always got funny looks because many people don’t think a sweater and shorts go together. Yes, it’s a style oxymoron but I’ve always loved when these two pieces came together to create a unique outfit.
I’ve shared with you these printed shorts before in, It’s Summer, Wear Fun Shorts, I wore it with a white chiffon blouse. These shorts could have been the center of this summer look too but I wanted to pair it with something a little more unique, like a lace sweater.
This neutral lace sweater is perfect for summer because it doesn’t really cover much therefore you won’t get hot. I wore it before with a bandeau bra but this time I opted for a white tank top. The only way you can wear a sweater with shorts during the summer is if the sweater breathes, like the one I’m wearing, or if you live near the coast or mountains where it gets cooler in the evenings. In valley, where I live, it’s nearly impossible to even wear a blazer outside because it’s so darn hot.
When I brought these pieces together to create this look I paid particular attention to the details. The detail in the lace sweater matches the lasercut detail in the handbag and both match the detail in the printed shorts. The cohesiveness of the individual pieces create a stylish and unique summer outfit.
To my US readers, I hope you’re enjoying your Labor Day!
Is it cool enough where you live to wear shorts and a sweater?
