Everybody loves a lightweight knit easy fit pullover. The Cadet Pullover from cabi clothing features a candy stripe colorway with a flattering high low hem. The details of the mini stripe contrast cuffs and collar give it a little extra oomph. It's the perfect piece to elevate not only your style, but your mood. It's also a versatile piece that can be worn many ways as shown by our team.

Keep it simple by pairing the pullover with your favorite pair of light denim. A quick front tuck and a coordinating belt and this is one and done dressing. Cropped jeans or distressed boyfriend style jeans pair well with this sweater and any type of fun spring shoe or sneaker will complete the look.

The bright colors of this pullover really pop with white denim. Same simple look here, just add white denim instead of a light or medium wash. It's a crisp and cheery look for whatever the day brings.

If you are lucky enough to live in warmer temps, the cadet pullover looks fantastic with shorts. It is a cotton blend with three-quarter sleeves that can be worn alone or over a tank and wrapped around your waist if the temps rise. Paired here with a similar color tailored short, it would also look great with white or denim cutoffs or a longer bermuda style.

If you love bold color, take it all the way top to bottom with a matching color pant. It is the perfect exclamation point of bold color, which is a popular spring trend this season. The stripe placement on this pullover is also so flattering on all body types and truly make this a unique statement piece.

The cadet pullover also plays well with other pieces for layering. A classic denim shirt and white jeans underscores its versatility, and it easily could wear over a white or pink shirt as well. Think of all the shirt and denim combos that would be the perfect base.

The colorful nature of this pullover calls for a little pattern play. Stripes on stripes - why not? The bold colorful stripe pairs beautifully with a classic blue and white stripe button down. Keeping scale in mind, think of all the other print possibilities - mini floral, etc. Add your favorite denim and sneakers and off you go!

The cadet pullover isn't just for casual outings, it adds a little spice to a jacket and pant. Think "girl power" when worn under a suit or with a skirt. It's unexpected under the subtle color pink pieces shown here or go full on bold with the brighter pink or cherry red hues. Your choice of footwear completes the look and feel of this mood-boosting ensemble.
