Indulge in some old-school glamour with this
stylish cardigan-jacket and gilet, designed for
those heavier stable knits with a little stretch like
ponte, sweatshirting, French terry, even fleece,
with an optional detachable faux-fur collar.
Semi-fitted cardigan-jacket or gilet has a center
back seam, panel seams plus ‘Dior’ darts. Wrap-
over, collarless front has optional concealed
snap closure and softly curved ‘V’ neckline, plus
a curved hemline. Jacket features classic full
2-piece length jacket sleeves; gilet has faced
armholes. Body & sleeve hems are finished with
a facing. A skinny or thick tie belt, lined patch
pockets and detachable faux-fur collar are
optional but -of course- highly recommended!
This gorgeous piece will be your go-to top layer
for uncertain weather...wear the faux fur collar
when it’s chilly, or remove it for warmer weather.
Wear this to instantly elevate a simple T-shirt &
jeans combo; try it over a slim shift-dress with
boots; or team this with pants and a simple
sweater in upscale fabrics for a luxe jet-set look.
