Summer Scoop Neck: My Lightweight Go-To Sweater

Introducing part 2 of my 3-part blog series about the Summer Scoop Neck Sweater, an essential transitional layer, allowing you to create many comfortable outfits with fewer items in your closet.

This blog is about perfecting my summer wardrobe with my Summer Scoop Neck Sweater. Check out how I mixed and matched some of my favorite staple pieces with my new sweater to create different outfits.


Every closet needs a few things to make it well-rounded. I’m here to let you know what is best to add to your capsule wardrobe and why they are important. The end result of adding clothing to your closet should be to create outfits that you enjoy and want to wear on repeat.

Having at least one thing from each category will make it so much easier to create multiple outfits. Creating a wardrobe like this really makes you take a deep look at your clothes and use your creativity when it comes to putting outfits together for yourself.

Starting Your Capsule Wardrobe With A Smart Casual Sweater

I used this opportunity to create a capsule wardrobe around my Oliver Charles Scoop Neck Sweater.

It is a classic 3D-knit sweater made from yak wool that I wanted to incorporate with some of my other favorite pieces. The whole idea of a capsule wardrobe is having items that can be interchanged with one another to create a variety of different outfits.

Each category that I have listed below is something you want to have in your closet or maybe two or three of each to give yourself even more options.

Having these items in your closet will allow your creativity to run wild and make outfits that you didn’t even know you’d fall in love with and you’ll end up wearing them again and again.


Perfecting My Minimal Summer Wardrobe With A Casual Sweater

With certain minimal clothing items in your closet, the outfit possibilities are endless. I have created two different outfits using my Oliver Charles Scoop Neck Sweater in combination with other items from my capsule wardrobe.

The first outfit is perfect for the transition from summer to fall. I paired the Scoop Neck sweater with a pair of jean shorts, sneakers, and my black hat. This is an outfit that I can see myself wearing during a casual day running errands or hanging around with my family.

The 3D-knit sweater is comfortable, stylish, breathable and versatile. I can imagine I will be wearing this outfit again and again.

My Go-To Sweater For Fall And Winter

This next outfit will be my go-to during the fall months. I layered my Scoop Neck Sweater under a plaid sweater vest and I love that it looks just as stylish layered as the sweater does on its own.

I wore a pair of jeans, my sneakers once again, and the black hair bow. It is great to have accessories in your capsule wardrobe to further elevate all the outfits you create. I can see myself wearing this out to a casual dinner or running errands.
