Do you ever have days when you want to pare everything down to its simplest, least cluttered and uncomplicated form? The Day Trip does just that. A seamless design with minimal shaping, the statement blocks of color are created by holding Plucky Oxford and Sophisticate together, creating a beautifully marled, gradient look. Oversized and easy to wear, Day Trip is sure to become your wear-everywhere sweater (or should we call it a kimono?) this winter.
