Although summer in Chicago is a mere three months long, most of us sit in icebox offices all day long, shivering in our seats. Personally, I hate it.

I wait all winter long for warm temperatures and the sun to warm my skin and then the AC at work is set to 65 degrees, blasting frigid air into an already stale environment. What I really want to do is throw open the windows, let the warm breeze in and wear lightweight James Perse tanks all summer long.

Big on sleeves?
Try this roomy kimono sweater from Karoo by Mark Eisen for $396 on Eisen is also designing a collection for Wal-Mart and I’m guessing it’s a bit more affordable.

Stripes go with anything
Here’s another great look from Shopbop. Why not? The site just announced free ground shipping on all purchases! Vince Striped cardigan sweater with hood for $285. A little pricey? Leave at work and you’ll find you wear it all summer long.

Warm up to pattern
