To the dismay of some, layering season is nearing its end and we've started looking towards our spring wardrobes. Sure, winter’s cold conditions are still lingering, but you know the saying: fail to prepare, prepare to fail. That means that you should probably be working on your spring fits already, but don't worry if you haven't — we've rounded up some of the best sweaters to nudge you in the right direction.

Knitwear presents a range of possibilities when it comes to styling as well as being a very useful part of the spring wardrobe. Having done its job keeping you cozy throughout the winter under a barrage of layers, it’s time for the sweater to be freed of constraining outerwear. It will soon be promoted to being the first layer of defense against any adverse spring winds and, if you cop the right knitwear, it becomes a strong visual fixture for the coming season, too.

We've picked out sweaters from names like Casablanca, Stone Island, Acne Studios, and more, and they paint a beautiful picture of the contemporary knitwear landscape. Modern, unorthodox styles sit alongside embroidered classics to prove that knitwear healthier than ever right now.
