Spring Sweaters: An Upscale Finishing Touch for a Night Out

We’re approaching that time of year, when soon, it won’t be freezing anymore (or at least not everyday) and it won’t be downright hot yet, either. But we will be coming out of hibernation and starting to go out more on the weekends and even after work. A lighter weight sweater has the right balance to dark jeans, twill or “seasonless” wool pants. So, whether you’re heading out for a nice dinner or a casual night with friends, a sweater can be just the finish for a masculine and refined outfit.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow for our casual sweater edit, perfect for any easy day. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

This dark navy Hugo Boss cardigan is just plain sharp and we are big fans. The chalk stripe trim along the placket and the texture of the wool/cotton blend knit give it an elegant look – you’ll feel like a modern day Cary Grant. It is great for an evening out at a nice restaurant or a dressy summer party where you want to make a statement. Dress it up with grey wool dress pants, a white shirt and optional tie. The fit is contemporary, so you’ll look neat and sleek in this one.

It’s important to have a dressy cotton sweater in your arsenal for an evening out, and Canali’s super fine v- neck is our top pick. Made in Italy, the fit is modern and looks polished and sophisticated on most gents. The high quality is clearly visible in this timeless sweater, making it the perfect balance for fine grey wool trousers or tan linen pants. A pattern button up or solid white shirt will complete this elegant sweater, and you’ll surely have it for years.

This heather blue merino wool sweater is another everlasting option. From A.P.C. - a contemporary French company that believes in timeless, well-made clothes – their option has a bit wider neckline than a typical crewneck that is modern and fresh. It allows your shirt to play a more prominent role in the outfit, which we really like for spring, so go with a colorful pattern button up shirt with sleek black jeans for an evening at your favorite restaurant.

This contemporary fit zip front cardigan from Hugo Boss is strikingly elegant for an evening out. The sweater has a sophisticated blue check pattern on the front with coordinating solid navy sleeves and back. One of our favorite details can be seen in the additional image (through the ‘shop it’ button) – the check elbow patches. It’s find details like that that make Hugo Boss such a wonderful brand, and every piece a worthwhile investment. Wear this sweater as a sport coat replacement with dark grey wool pants, a point collar white shirt and a solid navy knit tie. Of course, with a sweater this good-looking, you can get more casual uses out of it, too, with dark indigo wash jeans.

When the days get longer, and the weather gets nicer, add a pop of color for an evening out. While this 100% silk crewneck from Peter Millar comes in more neutral colors (see them through the ‘shop it’ button), this faded coral orange grenadine color is our top pick. The silk luster adds a dressier look and the color perfectly plays into that without being too bold. Whether you pair it with tan, grey or navy wool pants or go with cotton flat fronts or jeans, have some fun with the color by adding a pattern button up shirt. With such a unique color, you don’t need to match it – just compliment it, like we’re showing here. And, of course, a solid white shirt also offers a perfect contrast to the grenadine.

A simple, dark colored sweater gets us through spring and summer, just as it does in fall and winter. Theory’s contemporary fit, lightweight textured cotton crewneck has a modern look that is our top pick for an evening out. The black color, our top pick, easily goes with black and charcoal wool pants or dark wash indigo or black jeans. Pop a black t-shirt underneath or a dark pattern button up shirt for a dressier look.
