Just because winter left us doesn’t mean the cold has. Spring in State College can sometimes be a tease – it’s supposed to be warm and comfortable but in reality, half the season still feels like February. You want to break out your spring style but you don’t want to be cold, and you don’t want to revert to your winter wardrobe either. 

Spring sweaters may be the answer to your weather-depending dilemma. The right sweater can flaunt your spring festivity and leave you feeling cute AND comfortable. Yet, what really constitutes a “spring sweater,” and how can you wear one without ripping off fall and winter? VALLEY has got you covered, because we’re providing a guide to picking and styling the ultimate cozy spring fit.

A pastel-colored sweater is always a yes in our book for spring, especially in yellow, green, pink or purple. A light and airy sweater that represents the colors of the blossoming spring flowers is the perfect cozy and season-fitting piece. Try pairing a pastel sweater with a pair of casual jeans and sneakers for an adorable spring look.

Cardigans are super versatile and comfortable for the unpredictable and ever-changing spring weather. You can button it up during the cooler mornings and then unbutton it as it gets warmer throughout the day.

Especially in bright or pastel spring colors, a cardigan is a great option with a basic tank underneath. No matter if you’re wearing a dress or sweatpants, a cardigan sweater can be a great addition to your fit.

Too Many Colors To Count

A fun and colorful sweater full of pastels screams spring. Stripes, polka dots, florals — almost any pattern with spring colors is a great look. Pair a colorful statement sweater with a basic pair of pants and solid colored sneakers for a lively Maytime outfit.

This may be a given, but sweater vests are an end-of-spring favorite when the weather starts getting warmer. Specifically, a knit vest in a springtime color is super trendy and flexible.

On colder days, you can wear a long sleeve underneath, and on warmer days, you can pair it with a t-shirt or wear it alone as a tank. Wearing a sweater vest with a denim skirt or linen pants would also be an incredible look.
