FOILED SIDE SLIT SHAKER KNIT SWEATER
Different but Chic!
I bought this sweater and thought it to be very different but super chic! It looks like a leather knitted sweater in person. It does not shimmer but it does have a gloss to it. I love wearing black and am always looking to add to my wardrobe, so if you want to add a different black item to your closet, then I would purchase it. However, if you want a tappered look, I would receommend going a size down because if not it would be a bit boxy in the torso area. If you want it to fit loose get your size. I usually wear a small in Express shirts and purchased this sweater in a small but wish I bought an Xsmall for a tighter fit. I still rocked it tho and it was cute!

I saw this online, thought it looked beautiful. I probably should have looked at it in the store because if I had, I probably wouldn't have purchased it. When I took it out of the plastic wrapping, there was a strong melted plastic smell. This looks like a regular shaker knit sweater EXCEPT they sprayed a weird plastic film over the whole thing. It is not shimmery, it doesn't catch your eye. It looks like you just accidentally spray painted your sweater. This extra film on the sweater makes the sweater a little rigid and scratchy.
However, it is comfy, it is warm and NOT scratchy at all on the inside. I'm going to keep it because I got it for super cheap and hoping that after a few washes, it won't feel so rigid.
