    1. A slouchy pullover sweater (with a chest pocket) you can throw on when you only have five minutes to get ready.


    Promising review: "This sweater looks and feels exactly how I expected! Soft, fluffy, and a deep burgundy color. The fit is casual and loose. It's versatile and pairs well with leggings and boots or jeans and low-top sneakers/shoes. Perfect for a day inside or out and about in crisp weather. I also like sweaters that allow me to wear a fitted T-shirt or tank top underneath, and this one definitely accommodates that." —aamri

It has held up extremely well, and I'm always surprised when I catch a glimpse at my reflection to realize that it looks really wonderful and stylish layered over pretty much any outfit. I highly recommend it. I bought the purple/black combo, and the colors are as expected." —Healthy Curls

It says to dry-clean them only, but I wash mine on delicate cycle and then hang them on hangers to completely dry.
