When you think of it, sleeveless cardigans and pullovers make a lot of sense and are becoming the unsung heroes of transitional dressing.
When it’s warm outside, wear the cardi with a tank top; when it gets cooler, wear it with another sweater underneath; when it gets downright cold (like now), wear it as an extra layer with a coat on top.
Basically, it’ll carry you from summer to winter seamlessly. A sleeveless pullover or vest can be and is just as flexible a garment in your wardrobe.
Layering works on so many levels. You add texture and color interest to your outfit as well as the ability to add or subtract warmth.
Long or really dress length looks fresher but if you prefer jacket or fingertip length, that can look equally as stylish with the right accessories.
Personally, I do like the tunic length, worn with a t-shirt, skinny jeans and slip-on patterned runners. You can't go wrong.
All of these ideas can be made from any drop shoulder pattern as this is the basis of your sleeveless, edgy sweater.
