The Budget Babe: Lightweight Cardigans

A lightweight cardigan is a staple during the summer months!

Since summer is so hot and muggy, a heavy knitted cardigan can make you feel frumpy and sweaty, although very chic during the fall and winter months, not especially so when it comes to summer. You want a more lightweight cardigan that will still let the breeze flow through but still compliment your outfit.

These three different cardigans here are great for wearing to work or during the day for running all your daily errands!

'Claire' $19.75 - on sale!

This white cardigan is sheer and has short sleeves to keep you cool. The snug bottom hem and v-neck cut will let your top peek through. The mini pockets and buttons down the front make this cardigan all the more cute and special.

Outfit Idea: Pair this cardigan with a high waist pleated skirt and some mary janes for a professional workplace look or with some colorful skinny's and ballet flats for a cool day outfit.

'Carissa' $22.50

This burgundy cardigan is also sheer with wide three quarter sleeves to give you some air. The kimono style of this cardigan has an open front and a cinching on the back for openness and added structure.

Outfit Idea: Wear this cardigan with shorts for a more daytime look or throw a belt around the middle for a more professional pulled together look.

'Macy' $29.00

This beige cropped cardigan has a romantic touch to it with the crocheted shoulders that continue through the back. With wide half sleeves and a waist tie, this cardigan was made especially for those hot summer months.

Outfit Idea: Pair this cardigan with some light washed shorts and flat sandals for a beachy look, or wrap the waist tie around to the back and wear it with a short pleated dress and espadrilles for a flirty daytime look.
