No one can deny the cozy (not to mention, comfy) appeal sweaters have. While you wish you could sport them all year round, the tropical clime is a big reason why it isn't an option. Lucky for you, the -ber months make the heat a little more bearable for your sweater OOTDs. Below, we've rounded up some cool tops from Marks & Spencer's Knitwear collection that are perfect for your tropical weather-friendly sweater looks-and you can easily wear them whatever the occasion.
If you're heading to a chill coffee sesh with your best girl friends, opt for this sweater-and-jeans combo for a casual vibe. Grab your favorite sweater (avoid one made with a fabric that traps heat, like wool or cashmere) and pair it with mom jeans and sneakers. Finish the look with a pair of statement earrings for extra flair.
A chunky sweater helps add cozy vibes to any look, even for the office. Wear a thick, chunky piece with a skirt to keep things cool and breezy. After all, with such a warm top, it helps to keep yourself well-ventilated by keeping your legs bare.
Wearing a slinky party dress might be difficult with the slight drop in temperature, but the solution is easy: If you're looking forward to an evening with your closest friends, grab a cocktail dress and pair it with a lightweight turtleneck. It will help keep you warm enough from the cool night air, but not too warm so you can still dance without breaking a sweat.
Out for Brunch
A daytime event requires a little less glitz and a lot more flair. For this feminine daytime look, team a light-colored sweater with your favorite skirt and slip on a pair of boots. Forego chunky accessories (like bib necklaces and bangles) to help stave off the heat, and opt for a pair of dangling earrings instead.
Look sophisticated with a pair of high-waist trousers and brightly patterned turtleneck. If you're worried about feeling too warm, here's a tip: If you're sensing a little drizzle (and cooler weather through the night), break out the thicker knits. But if it isn't raining, wear a pair of sandals or any well-ventilated pair of shoes, then skip the cute mini backpack (which has the tendency to trap heat) in favor of a small crossbody bag.
