    The 2010 IRA National Championship recently wrapped the pinnacle of the oldest intercollegiate sport in the United States. With inspiring performances by Washington and Princeton, it’s this linen/cotton sweater (circa 1954) that is inspiring me this summer. I’ll be pulling one on with a shawl collar for those cool summer nights.

    Great piece Fred. I love wearing linen/cotton/silk sweaters in the summer if possible. The best part about these pieces is that they can often be worked into fall/early-spring lineups if they display the proper color palette.

    RL currently has a few fair isle sweaters that are perfect for either a preppy or bohemian look in the summer that could easily be worn in the fall if done properly.

    Wow, I always see light sweaters in spring and summer catalogs, and while they look great and I can get behind the idea, the possibility of wearing a sweater in Georgia won’t occur again until October.

    @Genevieve—I appreciate the fact that you folded a men’s inspired piece into your style.

    On vacation last Summer I picked up one of these sweaters at a thrift store in a small town in Pennsylvania. I don’t think it has the same flair when worn by a girl, but I still keep it because I love looking at it.
