This slightly sheer shawl-collar cardigan adds a look of laid-back luxury to any outfit. Silk/linen in a 14-gauge knit. Fitted. Long sleeves. Rib trim at cuffs and hem. Hits at hip. Import. Hand wash.I tried this on in white. It certainly is a "sheer" sweater, and I think a little more than slightly. The sweater is extremely thin, and is nice and soft, but not as soft and smooth as the Sorbet-Stripe Cardigan. The shawl collar was a cute touch, and added some nice detail to an otherwise boring sweater.
The sweater has really large buttons, and I'm not really a fan of the cardigan open, what with those gaping buttonholes and all. The good thing about this cardigan is that because it is so light, it will work really well as a spring and summer cover-up, without being heavy, bulky, or uncomfortable. It is also a good layering piece over longer tees.
Here is a blurry close-up of the big buttons.
I left this sweater behind because it was just okay for me. Even though I'm always on the lookout for a cute white cardigan, this one just wasn't cute enough.
What do you think? Do you like this sweater? What color would you get it in? Would you pay $78 for it?
