Summer is definitely in sight, but floaty dresses, cut-off shorts and cute tanks will only get you so far on breezy nights and cloudier days (LA inhabitants know the June gloom is real). That’s where the perfect seasonal sweater comes in and we’ve just spotted a celebrity-adored version from LA-based brand Ragdoll LA.
From weekends at the beach to camping excursions, this versatile and cozy style comes a bit oversized with puffy sleeves, a mock neckline and a stylish slouch that pairs flawlessly with jeans and leggings or as a layer over sunny staples like dresses, skirts and swimwear. The poppy hue sets a cheerful tone whether you style with straight-leg jeans and flats á la Alicia Vikander and Alexa Chung or wear with your favorite jean shorts and sandals if it’s a leg-baring kind of day.
Ahead, shop the summer-perfect sweater before it sells out. We even included a handful of pieces you can pair with it—from raw-edge denim to linen pants and feminine frocks.
