Best Bet: Long Sweater Vest


In finicky in-between weather, smart layering is key. This hand-knit vest is a slouchy-chic alternative to the ubiquitous boyfriend cardigan. Made from super-soft alpaca wool, the vest is a versatile layering piece for spring, whether belted over a sleeveless dress or worn open with a silk tank. And though alpaca is typically pricey, the half-off sale makes it less of a splurge.
