If there’s one thing that’s non-negotiable for me, it’s comfort. I like to look neat and put-together, but can’t tolerate clothing that’s stiff or feels constraining. So I’m happy to see that sweater jackets are still a “thing.” More polished than a standard cardigan, but more relaxed than a tailored blazer, they hit that sweet spot between ease and structure.
Spring Sweater Jackets for Women
Just a note, I’m using “sweater jacket” here to cover a pretty broad range of styles. Retailers seem to use “cardigan,” “sweater jacket” and “knit jacket” interchangeably. Some are softer, others more structured. Some are more fitted, others are oversized. If not too bulky, they can be a travel-friendly alternative to a standard jacket.

This sweater jacket style from J.Crew has been going strong for several seasons now. It’s an easy throw-on-and-go piece. They’ve added a couple of new colors, this pretty Rose pink, and a pastel seafoam blue.
