Whether you wear it in a mountaintop getaway or simply to run errands or pad around the house, you’ll be cozy, comfortable, and warm – and you’ll look great. Clara has a modern, boxy shape and a line that slopes slightly from front to back. While the overall fit is oversized, the sleeves are fitted, and the bottom border pulls in slightly to hug the legs. This is a sweater that looks especially good with leggings or skinny jeans.
