This sporty wardrobe basic makes a great layering piece with its tapered, flattering silhouette and a high, ribbed turtleneck. It’s the perfect choice as an in-between season essential. Of course, if you prefer a crewneck, just work your neckband for 1”/2.5cm and then bind off.

Don’t let the horizontal stripes scare you! The tapered shape of the body of this sweater prevents extra fabric from settling at the waist. And the short sleeves keep the look light, not bottom-heavy.
