How to Style a Lightweight Spring/Summer Cardigan

When the weather is up and down, and it’s supposed to be spring, but it’s still a bit chilly, what do you wear? A jacket can feel kind of bulky, so how about a lightweight spring/summer cardigan? Today I’m sharing a cute pink one from Talbots that also comes in a gorgeous coral color. Have a look and see how  I styled it to look fresh and modern.

If you haven’t already noticed, bright, cheery colors are where it’s at this season. ( Check out my latest color report) We’re seeing lots of bold mixes like pink with red and orange with a fun, playful vibe. These colors are as bright and clear as a spring garden and look fabulous when you pair them with white.

Florals are always popular this time of year but even more so in 2022. A floral ruffle neck top like this is a great starting piece for an outfit. You can see the cardigan (similar & here)  has a fringe hem which is a popular trend right now. I like that it’s a fine type of fringe, not overdone, and very classy.  My gorgeous Dean Davidson jewelry, my two-tone linear bracelet, and linear earrings add some gorgeous sparkle to this look.

White jeggings are crisp and fresh this time of year and make these brights pop. These are nice and stretchy, and I love the summery crop leg and the way it highlights your ankles and a cute pair of sandals. I’m wearing a bit of a heel, but this outfit also looks fab with cute slides for every day.  talbots pink cardigan

A straw bag adds a cute summer vibe.  And don’t forget a great pair of sunglasses. I love these fine double bridge ones, which have a bit of European flair!

Here’s that darling ruffle top. Small details like this make the difference.

Did you notice the gold belt? I’m crazy about this because it is always difficult to know what to wear with white jeans. A white belt seems too tacky, and a dark or black belt is too dark. Navy doesn’t work if you wear these colors, and tan seems a bit earthy. The gold is very chic and up levels this outfit.
