The weather is finally changing and as it warms up and the days get longer, it’s time to treat our sweater wardrobe to a summer makeover.

Yes, it is finally time to change our cosy winter clothes to lighter, breezier options that can be both fun and practical. Although sweaters are considered mainly winter or near winter clothing these can also be a fine option for a transitional period. Here are some simple tips to help you make the switch seamlessly, and add some sweaters for warmer weather as well.

What do you already have?

When it comes to clothes, we have a lot of it we just need to sort it out from time to time and see what is usable and what needs changing. Try to figure out which pieces are suitable for warmer weather and which ones are not. Focus on lightweight fabrics like cotton, linen, or lightweight wool that will keep you comfortable in the summer heat.

Layers are good

In transitional periods, layering is key. Instead of wearing heavy sweaters all the time, opt for light layers that you can easily remove as the day heats up. You can wear a thin sweater with a breathable tank top or a lighter blouse for a style-packed and practical summer look.

Choose brighter colours

Nothing screams summer and warmer weather than vibrant colours. Dark and moody tones are a past and it’s time you go with lighter pastels, neon, or bold primaries to compliment the sun rays. We all know that these colours will help you stay cool, and they’ll also brighten up your summer wardrobe.

Experiment with silhouettes

Experimenting with sweater silhouettes is not that difficult and everyone should do it regularly. Throw away those bulky turtlenecks try some sleeveless vests, and go for fun cropped sweaters or off-the-shoulder styles. All of these breezy styles will help you remain cool and look stylish all summer long.


Accessorizing can make all the difference when it comes to transitional periods. Here you can focus on different types of scarves, a necklace, or a wide statement-making hat to bring your summer sweater game to another level. Make sure to keep accessories light and breezy to complement your summer style.

Breathability is key

Since it is the transition period where everything is warming up and you will soon be in the summer time make sure you choose sweaters for summer that are light and breathable above all. Go with those fun open-knit designs, mesh panels and similar for maximum airflow. These fabric types will help you stay cool and comfortable, even on the hottest of days.

Get some transitional pieces

These pieces of clothing can be anything and these will come in handy when you want to go from winter to summer seamlessly. Sweaters with removable sleeves or any other convertible designs that allow you to adjust your look based on the temps fall into this category. You can also use layering here as a transitional option but make sure you do not overdo it because it will lose its meaning.
