Fall is right around the corner and lightweight sweaters are one of my number one must-haves for fall. They are the perfect fall transitional staple because they are great for when the weather cools down, but are easily removed if the day heats up. Sweaters come in all different fabrics, textures, and can be so soft and cozy, but also lightweight and easy to throw over any outfit for an additional layer and warmth, making them the perfect transitional piece to add to your wardrobe. And once fall starts to transition into winter, they are perfect layered under a winter coat for additional warmth. There are a variety of different ways to style them from casual to dressy looks, and I’ll be sharing a roundup of different lightweight sweaters that are perfect for your transitional outfits this year from summer to fall.
