Spring Sweaters Are an Underrated Must-Have on Cool Days

Though fall is, without a doubt, sweater-shopping season, spring offers its own version of the sartorial practice. Because if we’re being honest, spring tends to be as temperate as fall is. So why shouldn’t spring sweaters be as viable as autumnal options?

In September, we trade our summer brights for fall neutrals—stocking up on every olive, camel, chocolate or charcoal knit we can get our hands on. This leaves our sweater selection feeling distinctly cold weather-focused; we’ve prepared for chilly October days, not breezy April nights. Taking some time to restock the sweaters in our closets can allow us to dress in a way that feels simultaneously weather-appropriate and spring-friendly. Just as a bubblegum pink sweater would’ve felt odd during autumn, a chocolate one feels a little strange during the spring. The most practical pieces in our closets aren’t rendered in the appropriate palette, leaving spring dressing feeling all function, no fashion—a shame, considering spring is one of the most aesthetically exciting seasons of the year.

The easiest remedy to this dilemma? Shopping spring sweaters. Though the genre feels a little oxymoronic, it’s expansive, it’s diverse and it’s here to keep you cozy when spring’s temperatures get a little tricky. Most of all, it wants to help you remember that the sun is shining, flowers are blooming and warm weather is right around the corner. Why revert to your fall go-tos when you can celebrate the start of a new season in spring pieces, instead?
