Call it spring fever. Call it seasonal affective disorder. But come this time of year—when the weather hasn't officially changed, but we're definitely ready to lose the bulky clothes—we're glad to see stores start peppering racks with new goods. The kind of clothes that bridge the gap between blustery February days and sunny April afternoons. Like this collegiate sweater, crafted not from scratchy wool but lightweight Pima cotton. The fabric's slub texture, wide V-neck and hand-cut felt numbers give it a simple, yet decidedly old school vibe. Layer it over an oxford and under a tweed jacket now and when the sun comes back, simply throw it on and push up the sleeves.
