I've been seeing a lot of long sleeveless sweaters on the market and I've been itching to try one out. My first thought was "Whats the point of that? If it's cold enough to wear a sweater, don't you need your arms covered?". However, I've since then changed my mind since finding this olive green beauty from J.C. Penney.
The weather in most parts of the country is still quite warm, yet we're all ready to start dressing as if it was not (some were ready way too early...like back in July or August!). Sleeveless sweaters are great transitional pieces because you do not have the covering on your arms, yet the body of the sweater keeps your core warm. I wore this sleeveless sweater when the weather was hovering between the upper sixties and mid seventies. I can honestly say I was not hot all day, but I did get a bit chilled for just a few minutes when I was in an over-air-conditioned grocery store.
I wore my sleeveless sweater with slim fitting black ankle length pants (Stitch Fix, old) and camel and black pumps (DSW, old).
I accessorized with black and silver jewelry (old) and carried my new burgundy purse (JCP).
My hair was a mess this day, so I just covered it with a hat that my husband bought for me from Burlington Coat House (old).
I'm looking forward to styling this sweater in the colder months. Because there are no bulky sleeves, a blazer, cardigan, or jacket would fit easily over it. You could also wear a long sleeve shirt underneath.
Perhaps my favorite feature of this sweater is the length and the slits up on the side. I will definitely be able to wear this top with leggings in the winter and not feel self conscious because my buttocks are completely covered!
And the slits are so nice too. Have you ever worn a long sweater before and it just seems to tight at the hips and/or is constantly riding up? I have! It's a pain. The slits make sitting and movement with ease, and there's no riding either.
