Here’s a deep v-neck cardigan sweater that “wraps around” in a sexy but slouchy way. Ribbing draws in the eye to show off the curves of your waist, but stretches just in case! Below the ribbing, side vents allow the sweater to drape nicely around the hips, but still add warmth for chilly days. Perfect with leggings or a pencil skirt, this long sweater has a retro appeal.
