Summer party season is almost here! Graduations, weddings, showers, pool and beach parties, outdoor concerts – the list is truly endless! And, of course, the age old question – “What am I going to wear?!?!?!”
Well, this is the year of the cardigan sweater – not the heavy cable knit, button-front in dull colors that my Aunt Ethel wore with her brown sensible shoes, but the updated, fun and fashionable new take on this old fave.
There are so many types of cardigans it’s hard to choose; but consider all the possibilities.
The Shrug – mid-upper arm sleeve with a just below the midriff length – flattering on almost every body type.
The cardi is a piece you can buy that will update your whole spring/summer wardrobe. Wear it with a white tee shirt, jeans, crop pants, shorts (not on MY body – but may be on yours!), skirts or over a dress. This is also a great way to dress up a maxi dress. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean it doesn’t cool off in the evening, unless you’re in the desert. Even in the desert, when you go inside, it’s always cool. So you gotta have a cardi!
When outside during the summer, do protect your face with a hat. Big-brimmed straw hats are VERY “in” this season – plus this popular style of hat will protect your beautiful face.
Happy parties, ladies!
