Who says you can’t wear sweaters in the summer?
Sweaters and shorts make for a really cool summer outfit– weather permitting, of course. This white fringe sweater was a late-last-summer score, and I’m just getting around to wearing it. It’s lightweight and has a definite summer boho vibe, which made it perfect with faded black denim shorts. I love the contrast between the longer sleeves and the cutoff shorts, plus the black and white color palette factor. To keep things casual, I slipped on my Taos canvas sneakers– the comfiest pair of casual sneakers I own. These bad boys are built for walking (I took ’em to Greece; they were perfect for our all-day explorations of islands like Mykonos and Santorini). The low profile and contrast stitching are cool elements.

How to style this fringe sweater? Well, denim skirts are back in a big way, and this sweater would look pretty cool paired with one. (So 90’s!) Skinny jeans are an obvious pairing, too, to make this sweater work for chilly casual offices or cool summer nights. A pair of heels or wedges would dress things up a bit, as would adding a statement earring and a bright lip. But I’m really loving the way this sweater plays super simple + casual.
