+We have been spoilt with some fine weather this June and July.  Nevertheless, I always pack a cardigan or a lightweight jacket when I go out.

There is nothing worse than sitting somewhere when the weather turns or the sun rapidly disappears, suddenly everyone is spying the serviettes as a mini blanket!

Ideally you want something light that you can either throw over your shoulders or have packed away in your handbag.

This season it is all about the short sleeve blazer or cardigan.  They take away the late evening chill and at the same time you won’t feel too hot.  I love Gwyneth Paltrow, and she looks amazing in her one above. (hers is Alexander McQueen).

These are great over vest tops or short sleeve summer dresses.  Don’t get them too cropped and they should be loose enough to fit over a dress.

My favourite is the LVIR short sleeve jacket, it is a great neutral colour, you can wear it button up or as a jacket.  Another great option is the St. John cardigans at The Real Real.  This is one of those under the radar brands that just delivers. I also took a risk on the warehouse cardigan, I will let you know how it turns out now £25 from John Lewis, the link to shop is below.

Below are some of my favourites with the links to shop
