I happened to be wearing this last week when I read a fabulous post from Patti at Not Dead Yet Style about holding out for those items that make you swoon. And I had to smile, because I felt so good in this outfit. It hit my Style Sweet Spot with comfort, movement and the “zing” that black and white always gives me. (Coco Chanel was on to something…)
Yes, a sweater in summer. It’s linen, and handles going from warm, slightly humid conditions outside to sometimes over-enthusiastic air conditioning inside. I will concede though that unlike most women my age, I run cold. When everyone else is fanning themselves, I’m reaching for a sweater. The tank underneath is linen too, so everything breathes and adjusts to temperature fluctuations. Another thing I love about linen is that it has a weight and swingy-ness that cotton just doesn’t have. Those are the pants that I wore pretty much non-stop during our visit to Hong Kong last year, made from a tencel fabric that I love for both the movement and lightness. (Tencel is made from wood pulp, so yes it breathes too.)
Do you wear black in summer? Do you find it difficult to maintain your style in the heat?
