There’s nothing better than spending a long summer day outside. Whether you live by a beach or have a pool or even a back deck at home, getting a healthy dose of vitamin D can do a lot of good. But as the sun sets and the weather starts to cool down in the evening, it’s inevitable that you’ll reach for something warm.
While a jean jacket is undoubtedly cute and does its job to keep you warm on a summer night, when you’ve spent the day slathered in SPF and climbing in and out of the water, pulling on a cozy sweatshirt sounds a whole lot better than throwing on denim.
“Beach fleece” is a term that we started to see pop up on social media this season, and it immediately evokes the image of that perfect hoodie that we’re constantly on the lookout for. You know the one: the sweatshirt that isn’t too heavy, too lightweight or too precious to wear every day.
