Bree is a statement top that will elevate your day-to-day wardrobe. Clean lines and a simple front are the framework for an ultra-low V-neck back shape. Waist ties on the sides and a horizontal bar across the shoulders add flattering details to the silhouette. A simple textured and ribbed stitch pattern allows the shape to be the focal point, and cap sleeves worked with short rows add a feminine touch. The turtleneck creates a fun cut-out detail that adds even more whimsy to this dramatic piece.
