  • A dramatically textured, lightweight tunic or cropped pullover in five sizes (XS, S/M, L/1X, 2X/3X, 4X/5X) featuring a bold cable and lace motif with deep, embossed ribbing to finish the hem, sleeve cuffs, and wide neck. Worked in two simple rectangles with a bit of neck shaping, this drop-shoulder design has an easy, slouchy fit that goes from seaside fun to poolside cocktails without a hitch—a great weekender piece.
