How to Style a Sweater in Spring

Spring has arrived and tons of cute warm-weather styles are heading our way soon. But, don’t toss out all of your cozy winter sweaters just yet! 
Sweaters make the perfect layering piece and can add interest and warmth to your outfit. As we transition into the new season, read on to learn how you can style your sweaters to look chic and effortless all spring long!  


Layer Over a Spring Dress 

Dainty, spring dresses might just be our favorite part of the season. Adding a sweater over a spring dress is a fun way to add warmth to your outfit and switch up your style. A cute pullover sweater layered on top of a dress (like this classic knit pom sweater) will help you instantly switch up your look. You can even use a hair tie to create a small “tail” in the front and tuck it under for a more polished finished. 

Pair the look with a trendy denim jacket if you need another layer, and finish off the outfit with sandals, wedges or boots, depending on the weather. You definitely can’t go wrong with this spring look. 

Pair with Denim 

Whether you're heading out on a girls’ night or just running errands, pairing a simple sweater with jeans or denim shorts is an on-trend spring look that never disappoints. 

Super cozy and easy to throw on, this go-to combo looks more put-together than a sweatsuit, yet less formal than a dress or skirt. A striped sweater styled off the shoulder adds interest to the otherwise simple combination.
Throw on a cute pair of shoes like these mules or a handbag for a fun pop to make this spring look anything but boring.

Wear as a Swimsuit Cover Up 

If you’re heading to any pool parties or beach bonfires this spring, a sweater is the perfect item to throw over your swimsuit for the ultimate effortless, casual look. 

A lightweight hoodie sweater is a great choice that makes a statement and will keep you warm when needed. The oversized fit is perfect for doubling as a cover up. 

Open knit sweater styles that allow your swimsuit design to peek through are also great choices. Simply add a fun pair of sandals and you’re well on your way to stunning spring style!

 

Style Over a Skirt 

Sweaters and skirts are spring pairing perfection. This versatile and fun combination is always super chic. For a relaxed and comfy vibe, choose a lightweight sweater paired with a light and flowy skirt and a chunky, block heel booty. You can even tuck the sweater into the front of the skirt for a more polished finish. 
Sweaters paired with pencil skirts create a more streamlined style that is perfect for work or a dinner out. Slouchy sweaters (think drop sleeves or slub knits) look great when tucked in and paired with heels or booties. Adding a jacket or blazer over the top offers a more refined style. 

 

Monochromatic Spring Style

Sweaters are the perfect addition to a monochromatic spring look. Opt for a pastel palette with pieces like a pink brushed knit sweater paired with a pink raw hem skirt to create a unique and darling style that is perfect for the temperate spring weather. 

A solid-colored cardigan sweater is also a great way to spice up an otherwise all-white or neutral outfit for spring. Adding fun earrings or a bold lip will create a show-stopping look that will be sure to turn heads this spring. 
Whichever style you choose, these tips are sure to help you get some extra use out of your sweaters and switch up your spring fashion!
