A fitted version of the sweater vest – still classic and comfortable – this slim-fitting and shapely silhouette extends mid-hip in length with an extra deep V-neck. The vest looks great over long sleeves, short sleeves, or even no sleeves, for year round wear-ability. Horizontal stripes, narrow below the waist and wider above, add visual interest and fun!
