Angelina Jolie Makes a Summer Sweater Case


Summer clothing usually skews lightweight. The gauzy slip dresses and thin blouses that crowd the streets are providing some degree of heat relief. Substantial fare such as knits, coats, and jerseys typically get packed away before winter but leave it to Angelina Jolie to offer an alternate view of the look of the season.

Maxfield and her son Pax, the Oscar winner braved the 90-degree temperature in an oversized tan sweater from Ryan Roche’s Spring 2020 line, while shopping at the Los Angeles fashion mainstay. Roche’s cashmere t-shirts are trendy throughout the year and deliver a luxury take on a staple wardrobe. A longtime fan of the designer’s work, Jolie layered hers over a long white dress, which she coordinated with her face mask.

Monochromatic styling appeals to the minimalist tastes of Jolie, and as such, she has packed into the outfit in plenty of tan accessories. Her Gabriela Hearst Nina bag and matching sandals contributed to the effect, as did her sweater with a pair of translucent aviators in the same rich beige tones. True knitwear fans, even in the middle of summer, would search for some reason to take out their cashmere. Though she often opts for the comfort of loose-fitting knits, Jolie would have to make concessions for the weather were her day spent outdoors in the current climate. Still, for the journey from an air-conditioned boutique to the back seat of an SUV, her extra layer made for a movie-star worthy summer look.
