This sweater is fairly generic sure, but I'm head over heels about the color! So vibrant and punchy it lends that hopefulness that comes in springtime. Judging by the looks of that pilling, it's more than likely cashmere. Love it even more! Meanwhile, outside of the LA bubble it's winter. Snowy, slushy winter. Which means heavier knits. There are a hundred versions of these bulky knit cardigans everywhere this season. This one on Megan Fox @ an airport.
I don't know who decided they were the must have, but I'll put money on the same people who picked Sorels as the boot of the season.
I was hankering for a pair of these this Christmas... that is, until I counted 23 pairs within a 5 minute window, mostly on walking Aritzia clones. *shudder*
