This cardigan looks great with dress pants or jeans and will be great for travel for the dressier occasion without having to worry about wrinkles. I got the pebble color and it is such a neutral heather that it will go with many colors. I can give it only 4 stars because it being one size fits all and me with my narrow shoulders the sleeves are way too long. My simple fix is to ruche(gather) the shoulder seams, enough to bring up the sleeves.

Thanks to an earlier review I did know how to put this on. But I wanted to wear the color (pebble) with black, and the dark color was more navy than black,and the brownish tone just wasn't flattering on me. Also there was a frayed spot on the shoulder seam. This went back.

This is one size fits all, but, it may be a bit big on a small person. I'm at the upper end of the size range and it looks good. It will be great this Spring over a sleeveless dress or top. Can't wait to wear it!

Ok, so there IS a 'top' and a 'bottom' way to wear this 'shrug like' sweater. IF you wear it upside down, the 'cowl neck' will stretch and probably almost hang to the back of your knees...or longer and will seem too big. BUT if you wear it the correct way (so the collar looks like in the photo of the model), the 'tag' will be on the left side of your body along the seam line and the length of the sweater then should be about your waist level only. Then the excess 'cowl like' material will pool nicely around your neck!!
I got the rusty red and the purple one, but in person the red one has some purple in it also...so I'm quite happy with it and it will match even more outfits!! I'm also going to keep the purple one, because it has dark shades and will go great with a black strapless that has some blue tones....
LOVE Nomadic Traders and I'm very happy with this sweater...it will be perfect for strapless tops and dresses!

It is an open weave and I caught my jewelry on it 3 times the first wearing. So far it has not pulled irreversibly, put it will take more "care" than I usually afford my clothes. I am the dress, flash a glance in the mirror and go and never look again type.

The funny thing about this sweater is that it seems to have no top or bottom that I can see -- upside-down is the same as right-side-up. Too funny. It's very attractive, though, and a great value. Perfect for summer in the office. I'll have to get another color.
