"Knits are amazing layering pieces to add to most anything in your wardrobe from denim to skirts and dresses," says Sonya Consentini, T.J. Maxx and Marshalls style expert. Try a long, sleeveless style that features feminine touches such as ruffles or fringe. Another option is to pair with a long-sleeved tee and jeans for a casual look.
Sonya says a cowl neck sweater (like this one from Esprit) in a jewel tone with a pencil skirt or pair of classic black trousers is a great office style. Cardigans have gotten longer this season and feature fun buttons, belting and a variety of colors. Pair the piece with detailed leggings and ballet flats.
The best season to include a light- or medium-weight sweater is during the transition from winter to spring and throughout the spring season. "I think one of the most classic and debonair looks is a bold sweater used as an accessory -- casually tossed over the shoulder and upper back, and tied in the front," offers celebrity stylist Okera Banks.
The winter-inspired knit sweater is ideal for warmer climates. This cozy knit is warm but light enough for warmer days and versatile for multiple wears with a matching tank. To get more wear, look for special pieces that work for multiple looks, like a kimono that works from day to evening.
You gain four benefits when getting more wear out of your sweater in warmer climates: A great look; the option of a wardrobe change during your day; readiness for whatever the weather decides to toss your way; and most importantly, more value for your sweater dollar.
