Small simple cables crossing little bands of purl stitches form a lively allover fabric to elevate a cropped pullover inspired by ballet wear. Brighton is warm and weightless, with deep double ribbing at the hem and cuffs and a tailored fit around the set-in sleeves. The lapped shoulders and bateau neck create a feminine finish and invite pairing with your favorite necklaces. Brighton makes an impact in bright hues like Cinnabar; sweeten the look in a pretty pastel like Blanket Fort.
