When you think of summer, you don’t necessarily think of sweaters. However, if you spend a lot of time by the water, then you just might.

Seeing this sweater on the mannequin, I knew it had to go home with me. Through my eyes, this piece is reminiscent of spring sports and the varsity tennis sweaters from the 1920’s. Feminine with today’s trendy deep V-neck but with a hint of masculinity in its boxy/slouchy fit.

Though the sweater may look heavy and chunky, it’s anything but. The stitch or shall I say gauge that is used is larger than what we usually see, especially during the summer months. However, the yarn used is a thin cotton, which lends to being lite and airy.

Purchased back in March, I’ve worn this sweater plenty of times now. Come fall, I might just pair it with a crew neck tee or possibly polo shirt. Only time will tell…
