Product description

A modern staple for layering, this oversize shell is a fresh alternative to the cardigan when you need extra warmth. Columns of cartridge rib keep the easy shape flattering with long vertical lines. The front and back, shaped with graceful sloping shoulders, are worked flat and sewn together. A cozy mock turtleneck finishes the shell, and its folded construction guards against the winter chill.
