This Jumper with wide textured stripes and narrow accent colouring features a relaxed shaping at the body, narrow ¾ sleeves and low-cut armholes.
The design on the bottom stripes showcases an acceleration of the same base motif, by progressing from the wider diamond pattern to the narrower chevron seed pattern, that is also repeated on the sleeves.
A high crew neck, long and straight body and low-cut raglan create a casual and cozy shaping, that nevertheless looks flattering by the aid of shorter and fitted sleeves.
The combination of two fine yarns, different in texture and material, produces a delicate fabric that still shows off the stitch patterns beautifully.

But the main feature of this garment are the matching, fingerless colour-block gloves or arm-warmers: They are as eye-catching as they are practical!
These arm-warmers are like an unattached extension for Gilda’s ¾ sleeves, to allow for a versatile adaption to cooler weather.
They can be worn either as fingerless gloves (since they feature an opening for the thumb) - or as normal sleeves, if worn higher up and with the thumb-hole at the inside on the wrist.
Scrunched down or in immediate connection to the sleeve-cuffs, these little accessories are bound to get noticed.
