Make a statement when you walk into a room by creating your style with the sumptuous drape and luxury of this sultry pullover. The fashionable garment’s deeply ribbed hem alludes to the elegance of black and white films long past. while the beads throughout the sweater and buttoned collar of the neck add panache.

A question was asked on what sort of bra would be worn with this garment. One suggestion from various fashion sources points to using a halter strap which is often included in most convertible bras. Another is to use a bra which has deep straps to the back.
