Carmela is a cozy, flattering sweater for autumn strolls, market runs and maybe a visit to the pumpkin patch… Wear the wide collar folded and open, add a pin, or unfold for a snuggly feel and more swingy shape!
Cable and ribbed details with useful pockets add just enough detailing to compliment the relaxed fit with waist shaping for a slimming appearance. Cute and stylish, pairing well with jeans, trousers and pencil skirts…
