Easy & Effortless for Everyday
For a simple, comfortable everyday spring outfit, we love combining this bright white sweater w/ open knit design and relaxed fit Marley jeans. Nothing says ‘spring’ more than the classic combo of bright white and light denim. It’s so fresh looking, definitely not too winter-y but still warm enough for a cool spring day. Add a comfortable, but chic, leather sneaker and you are ready for anything the day may bring! Plus, if it’s still a little chilly out and you need another layer, this outfit looks incredible with a simple oversized blazer layered on top. Totally giving ‘spring-in-Paris’ vibes: chic, classic, and totally effortless.
As it heats up, this breathable open-knit is still comfortable enough to wear too. Just pair it with a pair of denim shorts and sandals instead. Pro-tip, wear a tank underneath so you can easily pop this sweater off and wrap it around your waist if you get too hot! So cute!
A Spring-y Day Date Look
Combining a light & bright sweater with a flowy skirt is the ultimate spring look! Dressed up, feminine, and so comfortable–perfect for a coffee & museum date. Plus, nothing makes us feel more in the ‘spring-mood’ than wearing florals! Goodbye dark winter hues! Using this lightweight white sweater with a flowy, colorful, maxi skirt is the perfect way to achieve this look. This sweater isn’t too bulky, so you can do a cute little front tuck or pair with a thin belt at your waistline to create a little more shape! Pair with booties or wedges–whatever you prefer–and a simple, structured crossbody to really enhance the elegance of this outfit!
Fresh Spring Workwear
If you’ve shopped with us for a while, you know how obsessed we are with the Tucker sweater! If you’re new to us, then get ready to fall in love with the most flattering fitting lightweight sweater there ever was. With a moderate v-neck, slightly loose (but not oversized) fit, and a modern, elegant balloon sleeve–this sweater is a must for every closet because it’s great to dress up or down. This seafoam color for spring is particularly gorgeous and we love it paired with these fun black pants w/ ankle zipper for a little extra style. The perfect office-appropriate spring outfit!
Not into v-necks? The fonda sweater features the same cozy but light texture and fit–minus the v-neck. We love the seaglass tones in this striped design too. Perfect for creating a fresh and modern vibe with your workwear. Pair with a simple black trouser pant to make this sweater office ready.
Spring Break Beachy Style
We are so obsessed with this beautiful dark teal open-knit sweater! The color is 10/10 and the trendy open-knit is so stylish and fresh for spring, while also helping to create a cool and comfortable fit. Just pair a tank or cami underneath, and since the open-knit shows it off, you can be creative with what color you want to accent this sweater with. Go for a dark gray to look more neutral underneath, or pair with a bright white for a bright pop of contrast. This gorgeous deep tone looks amazing against white bottoms too, so we love pairing it with these cropped skinnies. Perfect for a relaxing day at the beach (or the mountains!).
If you are heading to a warmer spring destination, simply pair this gorgeous sweater with light wash denim cut-offs. Plus, this top looks adorable doubling as a swimsuit cover-up. So, wear it over a bikini top and let your swimsuit show through for a boho, easy-breezy poolside look.
