This neutral look a go to lately.  I’ve been living in this lightweight cardigan (I also got it in black) and love how it looks with a simple tank, white jeans and tan heels.  This sweater has a longer hem with a small side slit that also looks great layered over a slip dress!  Find it in more colors here.
