How To Wear Cardigans And Shawls For Summer - Just Style LA

As for today’s style feature, I want to show you how you can wear a light-weight cardigan or shawl during the summer months.

Both of those category items are best known for fall, however you can still wear them for summer as well. Here is what to look for:

  • Light weight fabrics or knits
  • Open weave or crochet items
  • Short sleeve or sleeveless cardigans
  • Lighter or brighter colors
  • Find different ways of wearing them as kimonos or cover-up

For my first look today I have restyled our Tangerine Crochet Knit Cardigan with Fringe, which I first styled for you here. I am calling this pretty orange shade, tangerine, however Pantone has a trend color for this spring and summer called “Marigold” that is very similar to it as well.

Our Tangerine Crochet Knit Cardigan is made from a soft yarn with a very pretty open pattern. The back has a circular floral pattern in the middle making it unique. It is finished off with a self fringe that makes it fun and trendy.

I am showing you all two ways you can wear it today. The first one is just like a regular cardigan. For the second way I have tied the bottom of the two fronts (mostly the fringe) together to give it a different look.

As for the second topper, I am showing you how you can wear a great light weight shawl for summer. This is a new scarf/shawl for us and I personally love it. The fabric is soft and medium weight and the background is printed with a houndstooth print in gray/ivory combo.

Then there is a secondary orange floral bouquet pattern printed on the two ends of the shawl, making it so beautiful. And as if that is not enough, there is also touches of gold metallic streaks in the floral pattern.

This shawl can also be worn so many ways and I have shown a few of them below in the photos. One of my new favorite ways it to tie it in the front so it almost looks like a shrug.

Since it is summer, I wore both items over our best-selling Ivory Rayon Modal Tank Top. I finished off the look with our Gold Chain Necklace with Intricate Gold Teardrop Pendant.

All four pieces I am showing you today are part of our Summer Sale. Below you can see the link to each item.
