Knitwear doesn't necessarily have to signal winter attire — cozy season doesn't end when we turn the calendar page over to March. (And with the current conditions all around the world, you might very well need to whip out a cozy jumper a bit later in the year than you would expect.) In 2021, emerging brands and established fashion houses alike are finding ways to allow us to wear cozy knit pieces; think cropped polo sweaters, sleeveless turtlenecks and cozy wrap-around tops.

Gearing up for the Spring 2021 season, we've scanned the runways, online retailers and coolest Instagrams out there to bring you a roundup hottest season-appropriate knitwear currently available on the market. Featuring cardigans, pants and bustier tops alike — check out a tight edit of our favorite SS21 knit silhouettes below:

The GAIA Polo ($85) and Midi Skirt ($75), 437 

As a brand best known for their bikinis, 437 recently took their signature second-skin feel and transformed it into a knit form — super soft & lush, yet still acting like shapewear to contour and hug the body in all the right places. Cozy up!

Fantasy Cardigan in Charcoal, Ksubi ($300)

Made from premium alpaca and wool blend yarn, this oversized cardi features the cool-girl dropped shoulder fit and unique cabelling on sleeves, as well as a signature Ksubi patch. Great for layering or wearing on its own, this one has the potential to quickly become your new favorite wardrobe staple.

CÔME marinière, Paradis Perdus ($450)

An ideal companion for indoors and outdoors, this lightweight sweater is perfect for that transitional time of the year. A subtle V-detail at the chest brings an updated look to this classic wardrobe staple, while the rib knitting offers natural elasticity and extra comfort.

Switch Sweater, Sandy Liang ($395)

This cropped collared sweater in merino wool strikes that perfect balance between keeping you warm but not hot — which is exactly what we are going to be looking for come March-April.

Fahim Vest, Petal + Pup ($49.95)

Great for layering or wearing on its own — you pick! Featuring a ribbed V-neckline, ribbed cuff & hem and a relaxed fit for ultimate style and versatility.

Alloy Sleeveless Turtleneck Top, The Range ($125)

Consider this an elevated wear-everywhere staple — tailored for a sleek turtleneck silhouette in a soft stretch rib knit.

The Maddy Top, Khaite ($1,080)

This bustier-style knit top is a true Spring 2021 treasure — featuring a great stretch, structure and crafted in Italy from the finest materials available. This pull-on bustier silhouette also has a flattering sweetheart neckline and deeply notched sides; what more can one ask for?

Alolux Soho Mock Neck Pullover, Alo Yoga ($88)

Made from Alo's signature fabric that is both breathable and ultra-snuggly. Springtime is great for taking your workouts back outdoors — and this is a perfect piece for venturing out on a hike or taking a run around the neighborhood. You pick!

Alma cardigan, Musier Paris (~$134)

This comfy & cute tie cardigan is the kind of transitional knitwear we all want (and need) in 2021. Who said knits can't be sexy?!

Francesca Cream Cardigan, Frisson Knits ($680)

Slightly cropped and featuring a delicate braid knit front and shell buttons, this cute cardi is evocative of youthful nostalgia. A cozy yet sophisticated knit — pair it with jeans, over a slip dress or dress it up and take it out for a dinner date.

SIENNA Trousers, Recc Paris (~$94)

You only have a couple of months until the temperatures get too high to wear sweaters and such — so make the most of it with these ribbed lurex knit pants. Featuring a flattering flair, these are perfect for giving you an ultimate snug vibe. Pair with the FAYE cardigan for best results! ;)
