When the weather is unsure of itself, your wardrobe is likely to be as well. The temperature shifts between winter and spring and spring and summer can be the trickiest to dress for. That is unless you revel in the chance to channel this uncertainty into something that looks good. Enter — the sweater and shorts combo.

Exuding comfort in its finest, warmer-weather-is-on-the-way form, the sweater and shorts look is one of the best things about the weather right now, sartorially speaking. We're not sure why, but your plush grey crewneck looks far better matched up with a pair of loud shorts than that tired pair of denim jeans. Let the image of Kendrick Lamar below be your reference point.

With the declaration that sweater and shorts weather is the best weather in mind, we've picked out a few shining examples of spring's greatest couple. Featuring the likes of Bode, A.P.C, and yours truly, we've solved this spring style conundrum with most budgets in mind.

Scroll for sweater and shorts combos.

Earth tones shouldn't only be the reserve of your fall wardrobe. They work perfectly in spring, too, when the weather hasn't quite reached its white tee peak. This pairing of an eggshell-colored hoodie from our Not in Paris collection and a woody pair of twill shorts by Phipps is what we're wearing right now.

Late last year, Kendrick Lamar was spotted in LA, possibly filming a new music video for that second album we're STILL waiting for. As shown by King Kenny, a grey crewneck works with pretty much anything. In this case, it was a pair of antique fabric Bode shorts. We've gone for the same, with a sweater from A.P.C and Sacai's recent collab up top.

If you're not the understated type, here's a duo that offers a full assault of the color senses — one that'll see you through spring and all of the summer. New York label Lourdes offers a high-quality blue hoodie, complete with a winged fawn graphic at the back while Gramicci makes a case for the return of tie-dye.

Short Shorts

Short shorts are uncomfortable territory for some, but a great summer look if done right. You've got to be careful on your choice of hoodie, though. Too baggy and you risk being mistaken for having forgotten your pants. This mid-rise pair of shorts from Dries is a good gateway.
