10 Lightweight Sweaters for an Evening on the Beach

Lightweight knits that stand up to an ocean breeze.


Believe it or not, sweaters are actually the best summer layering pieces. They’re perfect for a weekend getaway at the beach where the temperatures are likely to fluctuate from day to night. If you find yourself feeling a little cool, reach for a light sweater — linen, cotton blends and lightweight cashmere provide an additional layer that’s breathable. They’re not too warm for wear by the fire, yet they’re hefty enough to combat the cool of an ocean breeze.
