Casual but crisp, Tallis is a simple knit with a sporty edge that will integrate easily into any wardrobe. Columns of twisted broken rib delineate the A-line torso and exaggerated drop shoulders, forming an eye-catching sleeve cap detail that matches the distinctive fabric of the hem and cuffs. A delicate open neckline and the gentle flare of the torso keep the look feminine and versatile.
