Although we are in the midst of summer, certain countries are renowned for temperature drops when the sun is setting. That means that the dress you were wearing during the hot summer day won’t suffice in the evening. Here, knitted cardigans and sweaters come in handy. Not only do they look so good layered over summery pieces, it is also a perfect way of adding a pop of color to your (maybe?) otherwise boring or one-colored outfit. As it is the summertime, we don’t want super heavy or thick knitted sweaters, rather lightweight and breezy sweaters have come to play – the perfect combination of a warm sweater, with air ventilation, for those slightly cooler summer evenings.
These are the three sweaters we are wearing this summer, after (hopefully not before) the sun has set. Click the picture to be transferred to their instagram page.

Okay, we’re fully aware that a sweater during the summer is not needed in certain European/American countries, however, if you find yourself in Scandinavia or England it may very well be a necessity. That is why we have picked our very favourite cover-up sweaters for those slightly colder summer evenings, and shared them with you. We hope you love them as much as we do, and knit your very own for those chillier nights. If you do, please remember to share your amazing creations with us on Instagram.
