Peruvian Connection, the brand that recently opened its first Chicago storefront on Armitage, has the perfect solution to reconciling the principles of summer style with the less-than-stellar temps we'll be seeing in the next few days.
The brand's slouchy summer sweaters are lightweight and ethereal. Whether you're styling with skinny jeans and wedges for a trip to the Randolph Street Market or layering one over a fitted dress, sandals, and fedora for a Memorial Day party, the comfy cotton will serve as a buffer against wind and (relatively) cool temps.
We love the details of the sweaters, especially the subtle textures, asymmetric hems, and high-quality lightweight Pima cotton.
