you had me at “asymmetry”

Stella Carakasi asymmetrical sweaterIt’s true…I’ve rarely met an asymmetrical hem I didn’t love. This is the Works Every Time sweater from Stella Carakasi, and the style is right in my wheelhouse. I love the soft color and interesting texture, as well as the dramatic shape.

This is definitely a Statement Sweater that works best as the focal point of an outfit. I kept everything else simple, echoing the blue denim in the jewelry from French Kande. Though there’s a bit of volume to this sweater, the knit is light and semi-sheer so it doesn’t overwhelm. I’m wearing the XS in color “Stone.”

    I love the way the sleeves are different, with fitted on one side and sweeping on the other.

    I really like the style, it looks great as it still give you shape and doesn’t overwhelm you. I bought a similar style, different brand, but black and made from bamboo linen.

    Love this look! such a terrific and flattering sweater. I would normally not look at a sweater with this type of sleeve, but I think I might need to look again!

    My daughter and I both found almost exactly the same sweater-heavier “winter” knit-at Target last fall. Ended up going back for them in more colors and they were favorite sweaters for BOTH of us. Pretty much the only time ever I have purchased the same item as my daughter. (I’m 60, she’s 18). The cut definitely elevated any outfit and I constantly had people asking me where I got my sweater. Enjoy it-the name is appropriate.

    I’m with you on asymmetry – one of my favorite sweaters is by Planet, with an asymmetrical hem and gorgeous asymmetrical drapey ballet neckline. I bought it years ago and get compliments every time I wear it. I wear it with simple leggings and tall boots so that, as you said, it can be the focal point. I love this Stella sweater on you – elegant and unique.

    It;s good to see you, Susan! Love the Stella top with the French Kande…and I am a big fan of asymmetry.

    It takes seeing an interesting sweater like this on someone who knows how to wear it as you do, to really appreciate how nice asymmetrical can look.

    Beautiful, really cool and sophisticated. Fantastic top and I love the necklace with it. I saw Pam fom over50feeling40 who was wearing one of the French Kandle necklaces as well and recognised it immediately. They are ever so nice.

    Not to repeat what everyone else has already said, but … I LOVE this sweater and it looks great on you. It’s already far too warm to wear sweaters here in southwest Florida … we won’t be pulling out our sweaters again until December.

    What a great top, I always struggle with wearing anything that’s asymmetrical because I feel so unbalanced.
