Spring Sweaters: A Luxe Finish for an Easy Night Out

Once the weather starts warming up, we find ourselves going out more on the weekends and even after work. (Yes, this is going to happen soon. It has to, right?) But just because it’s nicer out, doesn’t mean it’s downright hot – that’s going to take some time. And when it does happen, there’s going to be air conditioning to contend with. So for all of those situations, beautiful sweaters are always the answer. In luxe fabrications like gauzy cashmere, we’re seeing sweaters work their way into the most sophisticated of situations. They look just as good with a great pair of jeans as they do with an upscale skirt and some statement jewelry. So let’s dive in to our top picks for any night out and why we love each and every one of them.
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.

Vince does it again, creating the ideal timeless sweater that creates the illusion that we are effortlessly chic and pulled together once we put it on. The cashmere is soft and light as air, playing perfectly into the easy fit and modified kimono sleeve. We’re featuring the beautiful soft pink, but it comes in an equally pretty periwinkle. Both look great with jeans or casual twill pants for a relaxed night, but we especially love it with white or tan linen trousers, a statement necklace, and strappy sandals for a somewhat dressier look if you’re headed out to a nicer dinner.

Tibi’s cotton sweater has a fresh pop of bold pattern that we love for it’s sparse use. The graphic use of black and saturated color is just enough to make this simple silhouette, with an open bottom hem and longer length, a sophisticated show stopper. It looks fabulous with any number of bottoms – white, black, dark denim – and can be partially tucked in or left untucked. The cotton fabric isn’t too heavy and the fit just skims the body in its contemporary, yet easy fit.

In springtime, dressing up for a nice dinner or drinks with friends takes on a different meaning– we want to look appropriate, but there is often a more casual air to things than in winter. And that’s what makes this Club Monaco sweater the ideal pick. They've dressed up simple black cotton by adding just a little shine to the finish. The length is a bit shorter, hitting around the hip on most of us, to show off the looser, contemporary fit. It pops against any pale color bottom, but looks so sophisticated with a simple pair of dark denim jeans and a metallic shoe.

We often talk about how forgiving and flattering a wrap dress is. Well, that applies to wrap sweaters, too, and we just love when Diane von Furstenberg – known for wrap – tackles them. For spring, she has taken her amazing wool version and transformed it in a silk/cotton fabric in some beautiful colors. The medium pink is just perfect, and it also comes in a crisp navy and black and white gingham (one of the most popular prints of the season). They all look so smart and sexy with black, white, or denim. The neutral colors look great with a pop of color, too. Look at all three colors as inspiration for mixing and matching. Pale pink looks great with gingham or navy, navy and black is very sophisticated…see what we mean? Layer it over a dress, or with any pants or skirt, truly. Add a simple tank or bodysuit or wear on its own – it depends who you are spending the evening with.

Another pretty citrus shade of the season, White + Warren’s melon cotton sweater (which also comes in black and pale grey through the ‘shop it’ button) has a relaxed fit and unpretentious appeal, with this amazing button detail that brings it to another level. Simplicity doesn’t have to be boring and the contrasting tape detail of the buttons is such a modern and clean way to update a classic. This picture shows it worn with the buttons down the back, which we love, but you can also flip it around and where it with the buttons down the front, for a cardigan silhouette. Dress it up with linen trousers, or stay casual with an easy pair of jeans…you’ll find yourself reaching for this one over and over.

Vince - Ottoman Sheer/Solid Striped Sweater
While sheer fabrics are in everything from peek-a-boo dresses to skirts, we like to interpret the trend in sweaters, where a cami could be added to keep it looking sophisticated and fresh – and not overly revealing or youthful. Vince’s sophisticated take is straightforward and undemanding. It also comes in a beautifully deep navy.  Both look amazing with anything. It’s a great place to play with any color to wear with it. In the picture, you can see that Neiman’s is showing it with a tomato red pair of shorts that highlight a great casual look. But it dresses up with chic trousers, too.

As opposed to the clean and almost sporty feel of Vince’s striped sweater, Tory Burch’s take on sheer is done with a perforated stitch that has a lady-like finish. Add it to your favorite tank top as that perfect evening layer. And it is delicate enough to dress up with a pretty floral skirt and a nude pair of heels. For a truly relaxed take on perforation, Michael Stars has a pale khaki cotton version with a very cool open back. Both are perfect over a simple white tank, too.

Elie Tahari’s layered looking sweater comes in this gorgeous shade of blue that is beautiful on most skin tones. No fuss. In S-XL, the modern fit and chiffon shirttail hem looks great on all body types, easing over the hips and offering just enough subtle coverage to make everyone feel comfortable and confident. Add it to a simple pair of trousers and the work is done. And what ‘til you see the price. Snatch this up before it’s gone. Neiman Marcus also has it, but not on sale - they will price match, though.

With blue being such an important color for the season, we can’t help but fall in love with a few different ways to use it. IRO, an amazing contemporary line that taps into inspiration from vintage trends as well as current urban attitude, created a cotton sweater that does just that. The shredded detail down the sleeves and loose weave has just enough edge to play up a tough, yet feminine feel for a night out. Wear a nude bra or cami underneath. The mix of blues and whites in the marled fabric allow for so many bottom options – any shade of denim, black, white, navy, beige, even a pretty pastel. And the trim, but easy, fit isn’t too over-sized so loose or slim pants or skirts will work.
