With a refreshing natural texture (it’s all about the amazing yarn), a flattering-on-everyone silhouette and meticulous details like a rolled neck, exposed raglan seams and side slits, this sweater is among my favorites. Wear it casual or with something dressier, for an easy elegance upgrade. Loose fit. Scoop neck. Short sleeves. Falls just below hip.
