Lightweight Sweaters to Add to Your Summer Rotation

The solution to your office A.C. dilemma.

Despite summer’s guaranteed warmer temps, the plight of the office A.C. unit continues to thwart our rotation of breezy dresses and tank tops. Couple that with cooler evenings (at least on the east coast), and it's safe to say you can’t stow away all your sweaters after Memorial Day weekend. Ahead, shop our summer edit of the best lightweight sweaters to keep on-hand for those chillier warm-weather moments.
