the boyfriend sweater


I have some old oversize cashmere sweaters in my wardrobe (similar to the forever-chic one pictured above) that are in heavy rotation--but that doesn't stop me from pilfering from my husband's closet for more to wear. It's ironic since I have quite a bit of clothing, and he, as he often reminds me, has very little. Nonetheless, I can't help myself from stealing one of his comfy V-neck pullovers, wear it for days on end, out to a neighborhood restaurant (with a cute statement necklace), to the gym, even to bed(!). All of this he does not like, especially the bed part, as after a few bed-wears, the sweater is downright unwearable, even by his non-exacting standards. But, fortunately for him, I've just discovered J.Crew offers boyfriend-fit sweaters that are nipped in the right places, but look and feel as cozy as my hubby's--all in a bunch of colors.

I just found a variation on the boyfriend sweater (which has been a favorite of mine forever). JOE Fresh has it for $29.00; a lightweight wool with a cute inverted pleat at the shoulder and a dolman sleeve. I got 2. One is light grey and one is raspberry.
