Darling Transitional Sweaters Under $50

Happy humpday, loves! How’s your week going so far? I’m counting down the days until our beach getaway next month, so I’m having trouble staying focused! I find myself daydreaming about guacamole and sunshine… not exactly conducive to productivity!

It’s been busy behind the scenes of HSP… not only did we launch our Resort Collection at Nordstrom last week, but yesterday we wrapped the final designs of our next Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Collection! Giddy doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about this one! Any guesses? Would you guys be interested in seeing more of the process?

Let’s get to today’s post… I know we’ve all got spring on the brain, but the truth is we still have a few months of winter weather left! If your winter wardrobe is looking a little blah, I found some darling and colorful sweaters, perfect for now and transitioning, that will breathe new life into your closet!

And even better, not one is over $50 thanks to an exclusive code just for Hi Sugarplum readers!! My friends at Marks & Spencer are offering y’all 20% off site wide with code ‘CASSIE20‘!! I’ve been sharing finds from them for over a year, and sweaters is where they really shine. Or jumpers as they call them. How stinking cute is that?!


This first cutie is 100% cotton (perfect for spring, too!), and has a fun colorblock design that is sure to brighten up your wardrobe. Cozy relaxed fit with ribbed trim and soft finish, it’s a great medium weight. The material is ethically sourced and finished with their clever ‘StayNew’ technology which helps to hold the color for longer.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Colorblocked Cable Knit Sweater / Only $26 with code CASSIE20


This sweater’s high neck ruffle detail is feminine and flattering. Relaxed shape with dropped shoulders, it has a dash of wool for added warmth without the weight. Light enough to wear out or tuck, and great with jeans or trousers for an easy workwear look. Comes in 4 great solids.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

Add a French flair to your layers with this charming ‘Bonjour’ graphic sweatshirt. It’s a modern straight fit, woven with stretch for extra comfort. Super soft fabric is perfect for lounging, but the style cute enough for pairing with trousers or layering under a jacket.

‘Bonjour’ Knit Sweatshirt / Only $26 with code CASSIE20


Broad stripes bring character to this warm and cozy sweater. It’s made of a soft fluffy yarn with extra stretch that will make you want to cozy up on the couch. Wide ribbing at the neck and sleeves with a higher neck and touch of princess sleeve at the wrist.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS, but would prefer sizing up one to a small.

Boucle Striped Sweater / Only $34 with code CASSIE20


A modern take on the classic cable knit sweater, this one has a fun asymmetric weave for subtle texture and pattern. It’s lightweight, yet warm with a loose neck and wide, cuffed sleeves. Dropped shoulders give a relaxed style.

The cutest striped tee for spring, this cheerful top is a mix of pink, red and blue. Modern straight fit with fitted long sleeves, it’s 100% cotton. It also contains their clever ‘StayNew’ technology that keeps the colors looking brighter for longer. Made from pure, responsibly sourced cotton.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing US4/UK8, but would recommend sizing up if you like more room through the shoulders and upper arms.

Striped Tee / Only $12 with code CASSIE20


Give me all the pink!! This plaid poncho has the best shades of pink, blended with classic taupe for an easy winter-to-spring piece. It’s light and soft with a subtle fringe trim. Comes in pink or green plaid.

And next to sweaters, their HOME department is my favorite. I’ve found everything from pots to candles to linens, and have loved them all! Don’t forget code CASSIE20 will save you 20% off site-wide until February 12!

    The Marks and Spencer sweaters always look so darling on you! They almost look like they were designed with you in mind! I’m fond of the cream cozy turtleneck (I remember it from last year) but it looks like they are sold out in that color. Another great retailer found the perfect brand ambassador in you!

    I ordered for the first time from this retailer. Sweaters were too cute to pass up. Since it’s out of the states, what’s the expected ship time?
    Also, as a mother of 2 post-college age students, I’m going to guess the issue in question is spring break. It’s a tough call but, prayers and the hope that they retain the sense you packed into them for the first 18 years of life helps.
