Over 13,000 reviewers have given this sweater a perfect rating and can attest to its versatility: As one five-star fan put it: "Cozy and comfortable, just like I was hoping for, but still nice enough to help dress an outfit down or up."
This pretty waffle knit is edged with a chunky cable pattern, a fashion-forward detail we love. It's loose and comfortable, so it gives you just the right amount of slouch that makes it stylishly sexy — that just-borrowed-your-boyfriend's-sweater juxtaposed with your slinky-little-dress look. The reviewers have suggested endless ways to wear this closet must-have, and you can check out their pics online for a bevy of ideas that will have you donning this every day of the week.
"Best sweater EVER," said one over-the-moon customer. "I absolutely LOVE this!...I’m a shorter lady and I was worried I would be drowning in it, but it fits wonderfully...I got this to wear casually out or at home, and so far I’ve worn it almost daily!"
One reviewer was reading our minds with an ode to her fave feature. "The best part? Small but functional POCKETS!" she raved. "The material is also sturdy enough that a few items won't weigh the pockets down past the hem of the sweater — a problem I've encountered with other lightweight cardigans. Absolutely LOVE this hyggelig sweater!"
Another great feature? It comes in all the colors of the rainbow, and then some, so you can buy all of your base hues and add some punch to your wardrobe. From basic black and white to Lilac Blue and Champagne — 19 colors just ready to flatter every complexion and mood.
"I now have three of them in different colors and plan on getting one more, LOL," said a repeat customer. "I’m 5’5” and a size 10, and they go with damn near everything and cover your butt!... Great for winter, fall or even a cool spring/summer evening!"
Around the house or out and about, its long length makes it just the sweater you'll want to cuddle up in. "It is perfect for just a little more coverage when going to the movies or other heavily air-conditioned buildings, or for when the air gets a little crisper," said one reviewer. "Best of all, it is so soft! It's like wrapping yourself in a favorite old knitted blanket."
