Designers from Rag & Bone, Phillip Lim, and mainstay favorites like Madewell and J.Crew all showed a covetable crop of knits for Spring '12.

Some are investments that might forever change your sweater collection, others are smart buys with a trendier skew. Just click to shop your perfect sweater for Spring.
The tricky part of the Winter-to-Spring transition is that we're still not officially in warm-weather territory. We may be shedding some layers, but we're certainly not ready to pack all of it away.

Since we're dying to show off our pretty frocks, we're making styling them for the early Spring a no-brainer with 10 effortless dress and sweater combos. Some are sportier renditions, others sexier, but we promise — there's a look in here for everyone. We put all the pieces together for you — just click through to shop a few of our favorite ways to layer up our dresses right now.
