Best Bet: Carrie Sweater


Loose-knit tops were a trend on the spring runways, paired with long, gauzy skirts at Alberta Ferretti, shorts at Tibi, and slouchy trousers at Isabel Marant. This season, we’ve been coveting Ulla Johnson’s mesh cotton Maude pullover (inset), but resisted the budget-blowing $288 price. Luckily, J.Crew makes a close approximation in nude and navy, now 50 percent off online. The super-soft net-stitch top makes a casually chic layer for cool nights, and it's fully lined (unlike Ulla's version), so you won’t have to double up with a tank.
