    The need for a summer cardigan is noted, I believe, somewhere in a tome titled “Specific Truths and Decidedly Unhelpful Solutions.” — By which I mean: the moment you leave your office you shall be dying of heat, however the moment you step inside it will feel as though you are stricken with fever.

    This young lady looks quite lovely, might I add.

    Cardigans are a staple for me at the office in the summer as it is SO DARN COLD THERE…I actually heard a really interesting radio piece recently about how summer office temperatures are often set at a temperature that is comfortable for men, forcing women to cover up. Women have a greater surface to volume ratio and so dissipate heat more readily than men and get cold more easily (counter-intuitive when you think of women as having more body fat). Anyhow. :) Sweet little cardigans are wonderful.

    The icy office phenom really bothers me –women are so passive/tough –as in, they’ll tough it out instead of trying to do something about it. “It’s ok, I’ll just drape a flannel blanket over me when I’m inside.” Luckily, my current employer is not as sadistic with the A/C. But at my old office, I often sat on my hands to regain feeling in them.

    I’m addicted to cardigans, they are the best! Totally wearable with everything from jeans and sneakers to fancy dresses (depending, naturally, on the material of the cardy – but a cashmere one works with everything!). The office that I work in is very hot (no air conditioning) and since I live in a windy city in the north (Gothenburg) I wear a cardigan instead of a jacket when I go to/from work and take it off when I come inside. Anyway, this girl looks absolutely adorable and I just love her hair! So very ‘pixie goes 21st century’. This is the picture to bring to the hairdresser and say “I want to look like this”.

    I work in NYC with a very cosmopolitan crowd, that helps with flexibility on the 70 degrees that is mandatory in most offices across the USA. Shrugs, cardigans, wraps, leggings, many devices to fight the same convenience taken to annoyance. I vote for 76 degrees as a new standard.

    I think the cardigan is a tiny bit long, but I do love this outfit, which is perfect with this slightly punky hair. Tres chic.

    incredible shot. how do you get your models to pose like that? are they models in real life and know how to stand one leg bent and shoulders sloped? the colors of the dress contrast beautifully with the hot sun in the pic.

    and about the office temps…..this is my pet peeve. i cannot understand why anybody wants a freezing office. summers are so short, we must celebrate warmth. i vote for 76deg too, along with lighter clothing that is cut to expose more skin male or female. we should not be using so much electricity. another interesting thing, NYC insides seem cooler than Chicago, maybe i’m imagining it, but i always feel cooler in NYC clubs.

    The knitwear looks quite used. Maybe a pashmina would look better.How about the feet? Does not the feet get cold too.I would recommend warm socks too.

    The flirty summer dress is lovingly contrasted with the demure cardigan, all in light appropriate colours….gamine cute.

    so so true, no matter how hot it is outside & which case it is malaysia which has summer all year long, it’s always winter in my office. although the lack of snow it’s always below 20 degrees & most times 16 degrees. i only wear a jacket/sweater over though :/, & i can’t wear skirts!

    The nice summer sweater is something most clothing manufacturers seemed to have overlooked. There are two few light and feminine sweaters to wear over all the little dresses I’ve been wearing.. Hey fashion world, don’t forget our cardigans next summer!

    Yes! We must allways have a cardigan, even at summer time. The one she is using is so simple and so cute. She looks great!

    I love this primarily because of her great short hair. How can you not love short hair? Long hair would be so boring with this outfit – the bluntness of the style and colour is perfect with the femininity of her dress/cardigan and shoes.

    hahaha that’s true!! Back in my hometown in Brazil, it could be superhot outdoors, but as soon as i entered in my office it was like north pole! I always carried a summer jacket with me. Good tip ^^

    she looks really sweet..
    but i wish there was a photo of her without the cardi, the dress looks really promising!!!

    I love the idea of this look, but I’m sorry…I think the cardigan is a little too big and boxy with such a voluminous dress.

    P.S. She’s gorgeous.

    This is fabulous. It reminds me of myself, and how fashion is about humanity too! WE DO GET SO COLD IN THE AIR CONDITIONING! I love you for understanding. Spread the love.

    Looks like a prettier version of Mariacarla Boscone, I really appreciate how it’s becoming more accepted for women to cut their hair in short, practical and beautiful styles, how you can wear your hair short and still not feel like less of a woman. Great picture overall.

    Yes, I agree with you all! She’s gorgeous, she’s fab, she has great hair, great pose, and why the heck are offices so damn cold when it’s HOT outside – BUT I have one tiny tiny critique to make: it’s a winter cardi. She looks like she must be hot and itchy outside. Sounds like cavilling, but a slighty lighter-weight cardi would have looked better.
