Find your groove in a slouchy cowl pullover of Loft that’s all about flare. Belled cuffs and an ample skirt are balanced by tailored set-in sleeves, gentle waist shaping, and a perfectly proportioned cowl. The woven stitch pattern lends earthy texture. The garment is knit in pieces and seamed; stitches are picked up to work the ribbed cowl in the round. Make your Keaton a statement piece in your favorite bright hue or choose a neutral to layer over anything in your closet.
