Although this trend seems simple, it is one I am very excited to be writing about. When cardigans became a thing again sometime last year, I instantly joined the bandwagon, swapping cropped tops for cropped cardigans, wearing them more as shirts and less as an extra layer. The look always came across as smart and forward—two things that are always a goal in my book.
Well, fast-forward to today and the spring/summer version of this must-have sweater trend is here. It’s basically the same, but a bit more seasonal: short sleeve cardigans. No, this is not that revolutionary, but it’s a top style that once you try, you won’t be able to quit. Come summer, I plan on wearing short sleeve cardigans with everything from jeans to slip skirts buttoned up as a top. So whenever you get tired of your white T-shirts, tank tops, or fussy blouses, rest assured that short sleeve cardis are your new best friend and you can thank me for that singlehandedly. Just kidding. Kind of.
Ahead, shop a handful of some of my favorite short sleeve cardigans—ones that if you don’t buy today, I will tomorrow, so act fast.
