Spring is the perfect time to shop for the perfect sweater. As temperatures rise, you may be looking to lighten up your outerwear, which likely also includes hoodies or zip-up jackets. There’s always room in your outfit rotation for a good sweater, especially one you’ll wear in the warmer seasons when temperatures fluctuate.

However, a good sweater shouldn’t just be a take-out item. There are a few factors to consider, such as material, design, and fit in order to find one that suits your personal style. It’s also increasingly important to have something eco-friendly.

We’ve compiled some of the best men’s sweaters for Spring 2022, covering oversized cable knits and fine cashmeres – and everything in between to go with your retro kicks and star designer-approved accessories.

1. Lacoste Men’s Long Sleeve Crew Neck Sweater

Amazon has some tempting options, and this Lacoste Long Sleeve Crew Neck Jumper is one of them. It’s a simple yet classic look: nothing more than a solid color and that iconic alligator logo. And while this Lacoste badge is more often associated with a polo shirt, it certainly works on something more comfortable. The sweater also provides warmth. It’s 100% cotton and thick enough to wear alone or with a t-shirt. One of the advantages of shopping on Amazon is the range of colors available. There are 10 choices for Lacoste, including this vibrant cobalt blue option. (A$AP Rocky, Idris Elba and Zayne Malik are among the stars who have worn the French fashion brand.)

3. Frank & Oak Kapok Sweater


There’s a lot of interest in eco-friendly sweaters these days, and the Frank & Oak Kapok silhouette is the very embodiment of this movement. It’s made from recycled cotton and polyester with a tiny bit of spandex for stretch serving as an outlier in an otherwise entirely repurposed product. Its understated look is versatile for a number of occasions. And it’s snug without being tight, while the material certainly makes it breathable enough to handle a slightly warmer day. It is available in gray and blue.

4. Mr. Porter Recycled Cashmere and Surplus Wool Turtleneck Sweater


Collars can usually be paired with fall or winter, but they can be worn all year round. This high neck sweater in recycled cashmere from Mr Porter Mr. P essential line is the perfect example. Although it costs a pretty penny, it is certainly worth a significant investment. Made entirely from recycled cashmere and surplus wool, it is a very durable product. It’s also a cool thing, staying well in touch with the oversized trend – but at the same time avoiding swallowing the wearer. The slightly uneven finish gives the impression of a product that has been worn enough, but not too damaged. There’s a bold pink option if you fancy something a little more, but the faded gray colourway is the more versatile option.

5. Cos Oversized V-Neck Sweater


V-neck sweaters are making a comeback. Indeed, while they were once a formal piece – made to be worn under a blazer – they are increasingly a streetwear option. This particular oversized sweater from Cos combines a ribbed pattern with a thicker “V”, offering a mix of old and new. It might be a better choice for slightly taller buyers as it fits long. Still, if you’re looking for a trendy oversized fit that can also be dressed up if needed, this might be it. It’s worth noting that this piece is made from 55% sustainably sourced wool.

6. H&M Fine-Knit Regular-Fit Sweater


A good sweater doesn’t have to be expensive to be beautiful. H&M proves it with its Regular Fit sweater in fine knit. It’s a bit retro and simple – just combining a reasonably thin sweater with a shiny zipper. But that makes it a versatile basic, something that can be worn over a shirt for work, or also under a jacket if you’re on the go. it’s also tapered slightly at the waist so it doesn’t feel too big. Black is a safe option, but dark green could be a bolder and more interesting spring look – if you’re so inclined!

7. Everlane ReCashmere Waffle Henley

There’s still room for a Henley in a spring closet. Whether you button it up completely for a cooler day or leave the neck open for early April warmth, it can still be considered a versatile piece. This is especially true if you opt for this one of Everlane. It is a recycled cashmere and light, that is to say, it is soft on the skin without being too hot. Everlane also made it relatively true to size, making it a piece that can be layered under a jacket, worn on its own, or layered over a lighter tee. And now might be the time to buy, because the ReCashmere is on sale. For its quality, paying less than $150 is an absolute steal.

Topo Designs started out as a small company with its two founders focusing on making outdoor gear that could also look effortlessly cool. These days, the label is both fashionable and functional, and among the label’s signature items is its Global Sweater. (Another bestseller might just be the Marc Ruffalo-beloved Backpack.) This is a slightly fitted sweater in a wool blend. Fashionable and lightweight, this is a piece that can be used all year round – we love the black with attractive gray trim for a unique look.
