How to Style Spring Sweaters 

As we transition from spring to summer one of the key items everyone needs is a spring sweater! Spring sweaters are perfect for casual beach days to evening dinners, sweaters can seamlessly transition your look while keeping you cozy and chic. We have a beautiful sweater collection and wanted to share four ways to style spring sweaters this season, from layering over dresses to pairing with shorts, offering both practicality and style for unpredictable spring weather. Whether draped over shoulders or wrapped around the waist, these styling tips will help elevate your spring wardrobe effortlessly.

How to Style Spring Sweaters

Sweater Layering: Styled over a Dress

Styling a sweater over a dress for spring and summer can be a refreshing way to create the illusion of a skirt while getting to wear the dress in a new alternative and fun way. We highly recommend a sleeveless or short-sleeved dress to prevent bulkiness and allow the sweater to drape effortlessly. To enhance the illusion of a skirt choose a cropped sweater over a fitted or A-line dress, this also keeps it a bit more modern and polished. However, if you want to go for a more bohemian style, choose a oversized sweater and pair it with a longer midi dresses or maxi dress. If you choose a larger sweater or cardigan you can add a wide belt to cinch the waist that will now not only accentuate your waist but make the dress truly look like a skirt!

How to Style Sweaters in the Spring

Sweaters as accessories: Wrapped around the shoulders

Wrapping a sweater around your shoulders is not only a great accessory for when the weather turns chilly, but it's an iconic preppy look that is perfect for spring and summer. Choose a lightweight sweater in a soft pastel or classic neutral color or our favorite choice is a striped sweater! Drape it loosely over your shoulders or tie it around your waist for a relaxed playful vibe. Pair this look with tailored pants, a crisp button-down shirt, and loafers or your favorite sneakers for a quintessentially preppy aesthetic. The sweater-as-accessory approach adds some personality to your outfit, making it perfect for night walks, picnics in the park, or casual outings with friends.

How to Style Sweaters for Spring

Casual & Chic: Paired with Shorts

Styling a sweater with shorts is the perfect stylish option for transitional spring to summer weather. Lightweight sweaters in breathable fabrics like cotton or linen will keep you just cool enough in warmer temperatures. For a casual daytime look, grab your favorite pair of denim shorts and pair it with a relaxed-fit sweater. Let the sweater just hang, or tuck in the front or one side to make it look casual yet chic. If you want your sweater and shorts to have a more polished evening look, choose a more tailored short style with a slightly cropped sweater and accessorize with statement jewelry and strappy sandals.

Simple Style: Cardigans styled with tank tops

Styling a cardigan with a tank top underneath is not anything new or groundbreaking and the easiest of them all and offers a practical yet fashionable solution for unpredictable weather. Cardigans come in a variety of styles and colors. Choose a longer or more oversized cardigan for a more relaxed vibe, or go for a fitted and more cropped style for a more modern and playful look. This pairing works seamlessly for both casual and more formal occasions. Whether you're running errands around town or hosting a business lunch meeting the cardigan-tank top combo is an easy look to pull together and with the right pants and shoes, the syling options are endless!
