The classic V-neck pullover gets a contemporary tweak in this sophisticated top. Featuring a shaped waist amplified with triangular inverted pleats, this streamlined design has a graceful flare around the hemline and cuffs. A rolled stockinette-stitch collar frames the V-neck, and a bit of rib at the back neck encourages it to stand up. Worked in an exquisite silk tape yarn, this top is the ultimate in smooth texture and soft drape. An accent of color at the hem and cuffs provides stylish but understated contrast. Wear it alone or under a suit jacket for the office, or with a beaded Chanel for the opera.
