A timeless beach classic knit in linen, Point Reyes is the perfect knit for a summer day. The fitted garter bodice transitions to a soft and flattering A-line silhouette. Contrasting lateral braids at the back shoulders add structure and visual interest, while the I-cord neckband, faux side seams, and split garter hem provide an elegant and simple finish. Top down design and asymmetrical armhole shaping with set in sleeves make for a fabulous fit. Point Reyes easily adapts to cooler days when knit in a wool blend.
