Bold feminine and flirty lace make of the back of the Tegan Cardigan, combined with the fitted shape to create a casually elegant garment. The body uses strong waist shaping along the sides to flatter female form and a deep v-neck to keep in the spirit of classic cardigans. The loose shawl collar adds a modern take on this fun, classic cardi.
