This week: I am looking for some stylish sweaters that I can wear during the transitional months—both during spring and fall? – Alexia
Hi Alexia. The weather during these transitional seasons can be fickle, so we suggest you look for lightweight sweaters and cardigans. Anything too bulky will prevent you from layering it with other pieces. With that said, start by picking up pieces in neutral colors like Soft Joie’s Yasmine Lightweight Sweater ($118) and American Apparel’s Lightweight Sweater ($57). These will work well with nearly everything in your closet. Of course, if you want something that brings life to your outfit, check out Splendid’s Striped Open-Knit Ramie-Blend Sweater ($150) and J Crew’s Cashmere Waffle Colorblock Sweater ($268). When paired with jeans, they will instantly elevate your look from simple to stand-out. Good luck!
