Lightweight sweater for the summer
Does anyone still live in a climate with warm days and cool nights in the summer? We lived in Colorado for a few years, so I’m now a pro at navigating those cold summer nights. But even if you live in the HOTTEST climate (my Texans and Floridians)… you still need a lightweight sweater. I know, I know, some of you think there is NO WAY you will wear a sweater in the summer. But you’ll be wearing it morning and night, and you’ll want it in the HEAVY air-conditioned restaurants. I always felt cold in Texas summer because of all the AC! Below I share a lightweight sweater that I will wear all summer and that is perfect for those cool summer evenings…

Brochu Walker Lace Trim Sweater
You may remember I was talking about Brochu Walker sweaters in this post. They’re the perfect pre-layered sweaters that don’t add bulk like real layers do. Plus, the 2-in-1 style element looks super chic, sleek and sophisticated! This Brochu Walker sweater is perfect for summer because of the beautiful delicate lace details. I’ve tucked it into my jeans in the photos above so you can’t see it, but the lace details around the flattering v-neckline are also around the hem of the sweater. There are also some subtle ruffles on the shoulder that add another interesting style detail.
For a less expensive option, try layering two pieces yourself. You probably already have a lace cami and a V-neck sweater in your closet!
How to Style Lightweight Summer Sweaters
I styled the sweater with white wide leg jeans from Maje. These jeans are the perfect spring/summer item. If you don’t already have white jeans that you love, give these a try! They are stretchy but still feel secure, are not see-through and are the perfect length. I’m 5’4″ for reference. The wider leg silhouette is on-trend too! They’re running TTS.
A few more ways I’ll be styling the sweater this summer…
Pair it with denim shorts for a relaxed, casual summer look. If you missed my post on finding the best denim shorts over 40, check it out! Throw it over a dress for a chic, lofty look. You can also take it off and tie it around your shoulders or waist if you get too hot. Pair it with a streamlined skirt for an effortlessly cool outfit! For a trendy option, try baggy, loose-fitting pants with your lightweight sweater. And for the casual weekend-at-home look, just wear leggings with your lightweight sweater!
