The 7 Best Matching Sweater Sets for Spring

Sweater Sets

Cardigan and tank sets used to be all the rage when I was a kid.

I distinctly remember going back to the mall with my mom as a young child, because she really liked this one particular sweater set and wanted to buy another. She promptly bought the sweater sets in (what literally felt like) every single color.

I think that memory stands out because my parents literally never bought themselves clothes and so she wore those sweater sets for years

While the shopping gene might have skipped them, it's shown up full force in me!

And while it pains me to say I've turned into my mother… judging by collection of sweater sets, it's undeniable. What can I say.. sweater sets are super cute!

Here are my favorite well made and affordable sweater sets to shop now.

What is a Sweater Set

Matching sets come in all shapes and styles.

You have the cardigan and slinky tank sets.. the oversized sweaters with the matching knit pants.. and the more modern grandpa cardigans and knit bralettes.

Here are just a few sweater sets to get you started on the trend.

Best Sweater Pants Sets: Amazon

I bought this Amazon sweater set in the soft yellow buttercup shade. 

It's literally the definition of cozy chic. The sweater is plush, thick and oh-so comfy. I especially like the oversized fit and long bell sleeves.

There's a slit vent in the back and then matching knit shorts are tighter, shorter and look very cute peeking out underneath!

Amazon also offers a wide leg pants version if you prefer lounge pants over shorts. 

Get this set if you want a loose, roomy and cozy sweater set!

Best 2 Piece Sweater Set with Tee Shirt: Everlane

For something a little smarter, that you can wear to work, try the Everlane alpaca set.

While each piece is sold separately and they're not really marketed as “a set” on the website, I think they match perfectly together!

The tee is a slightly oversized fit, made from light and airy alpaca yarn. 

The cardigan is a oversized, grandpa fit. It has a row of tortoise shell buttons down the front and two large pockets. I love how slouchy yet elevated these two items look when worn together!

One thing – the alpaca can be scratchy on sensitive skin. But if you don't mind, this is such a cute loungewear look that you can eventually transition to the office.

Best Cardigan and Short Set: Amazon

For a modern and affordable set, you can't go wrong with this cute Drop cardigan.

It's super cozy and on trend, with a boxy fit and chunky rib details. I love the oversized horn buttons, the V neck and overall ‘grandpa' vibes.

Even better? 

You can mix and match it with knit shorts, joggers and the ribbed tank top. So cute – and something I never expected to find on Amazon!

If you like substantial, thick knitwear that will keep you warm, this is the set to get.

Best Cardigan and Tank Set: Amazon

On the other hand, if you want a thinner and sleeker knit for spring, try this sweater set!

The cardigan is the absolute softest material. It kind of molds to your body perfectly and ends right at the hip, so you can easily tuck it or leave it un-tucked. The eyelash style yarn is super soft and the silvery shell buttons are very pretty.

I paired it with this lavender cami underneath.

I especially love the double v neck in both the front and back. The tank is a ribbed knit texture so technically they're not a perfectly matching sweater set. But, if you like varying textures and tonal color palettes, you'll appreciate them together! 

Note: the cardigan runs true to size, but I sized down on the tank for a more fitted look.

Best Sweater Skirt Set: Revolve

For a modest yet sexy look, this sweater skirt set is adorable. 

It features a cropped cardigan, sleek knit bralette and long maxi sweater skirt. There's a thigh high slit to the skirt to give movement and a flash of leg when you walk.

I could see this as the perfect spring date night outfit!

Best Dress and Cardigan Set: Abercrombie

For something a little more modest and work appropriate, try this knit dress and cardigan set!

The cardigan hugs the body and is super soft. It will fit to your torso like a glove and perfectly layers over the knit dress.

The sweater dress has a midi length, with delicate cami straps and a v neckline. I love how comfortable and flattering ribbed dresses are on all body types! 

Abercrombie also makes a square neck cardigan and skirt set too!

Best Short Sleeve Cardigan Set: Reformation

For those of you who love neutrals, give this slimming sweater set from Reformation a try.

It features a slim fitting tank. Extra rib details along the bust and torso give it an elevated look that has just a hint of sexyness.

Meanwhile, the cardigan is slim fitting with center front buttons and cute short sleeves. Wear the cardigan open or closed to switch up your outfit!
