Amazon / InStyle.

Now that spring is around the corner, it’s time to start stocking up on lightweight pieces for the season’s confusing transitional weather. On days when it’s warm and sunny one minute and gray and rainy the next, it’s best to have multiple layers on hand. If you could use a new spring sweater or two, we’ve got you covered with 10 breezy knit tops from Amazon, all for less than $45. 

Our picks include crewnecks, cardigans, and cropped styles in a range of fabrics, sleeve lengths, and colors. Prices start at just $18, and all 10 options are available for quick shipping, as long as you’re a Prime member (or signed up for a free 30-day trial). Below, check out the best spring sweaters on Amazon and start planning your outfits for the season ahead. 

Spring Sweaters Under $45:

As Amazon’s number one best-selling sweater, this $21 Amazon Essentials crewneck is a no-brainer addition to your wardrobe. It’s made from a lightweight blend of cotton, modal, and polyester, and it comes in 39 colors and sizes 3XS through 6X. Wear the sweater on its own with a pair of jeans and white sneakers for a simple and polished look. And if it gets a little chilly, add a thin jacket on top for an extra layer of warmth and element of style.
