In fact, summer is the perfect time to find some more fun sweater silhouettes; short-sleeved sweaters, the perfect lightweight sweaters, and those mood-boosting colorful and pastel sweaters.

If you are looking for a summer sweater to add to your wear-to-work arsenal, consider this short-sleeved Gucci piece. It is made of a wool-cotton blend that makes it warm enough to wear on it's own, but also can be dressed up further with a collared shirt.

Sometimes all you need is a little extra warmth. This Simonette style has a similar silhouette to a bolero and includes just sleeves. Not only is it functional for warming up quickly, but the styling opportunities make for some interesting outfits.

Shop Peche

Tis the season to indulge in a bit more color in your wardrobe than you have before. This ribbed top from Shop Peche is just thick enough to be considered a sweater, but has none of the bulk of our favorite cozy-sweater counterparts, though we will happily save those for fall.

Summer sweater meets avant garde with this artsy silhouette. Don't be fooled by the cut outs, this mohair fabric will be a perfect layering piece to keep you warm in chilly situations, while being way more fun than your basic sweater.

Rosie Assoulin

Aptly named the "Thousand-in-one-ways Sweater", this innovative piece appears to be two different sweaters but are cleverly attached for you to get extremely creative with styling. If you're feeling cold, make use of the pull over top half. If you're feeling a bit warm, use the convertible silhoutte to reveal the tanktop underneath the initial layer.
