Whether thats backwards or not, details in the back are so chic to me...and all the more chic if that actually IS a jacket worn backwards..

This is incredibly interesting. I love that the sweater looks like its being worn wrong but at the same time its obviously not. Its so simple and trendy.

love the back of that sweater. my kind of style.


Blogger Tanya said ... (5:33 PM) : 

I like these soft colors !!!


Blogger Reptilia said ... (6:35 PM) : 

love that color combination!!



Blogger indigo warrior said ... (6:46 PM) : 

I, too, wonder if that's an end-user decision or a designer decision. To wear a garment like a sweater or jacket backward, as a woman, you pretty much have to have not a whole lot going on with the upper frontals. If you do have breasts, the back of the sweater is shapeless and doesn't play things up too well. As a knitter, sweater fit is dependent on a lot of factors. As a clothing wearer, it's dependent on the same things.

Lovely. Wonderful. Classy. Cute. Comfortable. Everything at once. Yes please!


Blogger clare said ... (7:49 PM) : 

i loveeee the colours, so nice and soft.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:54 PM) : 

Great detail on the back but whats going on in the front? I knit and love to design knitwear... great inspiration!


Blogger robyn michelle-lee. said ... (8:03 PM) : 


(although i am not sure i could pull a look like this off outside of the house!)


Blogger marialε said ... (8:25 PM) : 

love that jumper



Anonymous johan alexander said ... (11:35 PM) : 

How cozy, and love the soft colours!


Anonymous GingerLily said ... (12:23 AM) : 

Wouldn't it be wicked cool if it was 2 separate pieces... that you interchange with other colored knit pieces..


Anonymous Benedikte Capion said ... (2:58 AM) : 

Wauw. What an amazing and beautiful detail and color combination.

Really great. I'd love to see the front.


Blogger Paula said ... (8:57 AM) : 

not many sweaters are cut to be worn backwards..there's more around the neck, at least when you knit them yourself. but this works..wonder what the front looks like


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:31 AM) : 

Cambridge is a great spot, around MIT in Central and Harvard Squares of course but let me add Inman and Union Squares in Somerville to the list. They are close to Harvard (about a 15min walk) and have a uniquely nouveau grunge Boston feel to them, lots of interesting people and great bars and coffee shops. Lord Hobo's is a cool spot and the Druid is a neat little Irish pub. The Friendly Toast is the best breakfast, it's in Kendall Square. So glad you're coming!


Blogger Mertxe Hernàndez said ... (9:45 AM) : 

WOOOW beautifull colour combination.. Very Wonderfull foto. I love it


Blogger Davidikus said ... (9:58 AM) : 

Though never a fan of all shades of beige, I reckon this works pretty well, probably thanks to the subtle & minimalist design of that jersey's back as well as the layering.

Thanks for sharing.


Anonymous melanie said ... (10:22 AM) : 

Is the sweater suppost to be like that in the back? It's a pretty color.



Blogger P N said ... (1:24 PM) : 

prett, cosy outfit


Blogger Nino Eliava said ... (1:33 PM) : 

waiferer-esque !!! amazing


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (2:15 PM) : 

straight from the 1940's..wearing a cardigan backwards..

i wonder if that look was originally done to compensate for the lack of apparel during the war...and was that a way of streching one's wardrobe?

beautiful shading of taupes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:33 PM) : 

Beautiful! That is a hand-knitted sweater, so difficult to find these days...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:12 PM) : 

Very clever design, and I love the shades of each piece together.


Anonymous Jtizon said ... (7:25 PM) : 

Thats so funny, I'm more interested the shirt she chose to wear under her backwards cardigan, and those pants. Wish there was a full body shot of this outfit.


Anonymous F said ... (11:57 AM) : 

it is a nice detail indeed. but the colors combination is so cool, too. it even goes with the shadows on the sidewalk in the picture. that makes it even greater.


Blogger Mertxe Hernàndez said ... (12:25 PM) : 

wow she's very beautiful


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:37 PM) : 

From the tiny bit of the sweater neckline peeking out from under her hair, it is obvious that this sweater is designed to be worn the way she is wearing it. If not, the neck edge would be MUCH lower!


Anonymous BlingDuckFashion said ... (2:03 AM) : 

gorgeous! :))


Anonymous el mundo en un espejo said ... (4:21 PM) : 

Great jacket!!!


Blogger Diane said ... (10:24 AM) : 

Love the split back, especially in a knit! I have a split back tank I can't wait to wear, but I'm in Oregon so it might be a few months.


Blogger Walking around with a scapel said ... (11:02 AM) : 

I reckon its a knit cardi? The split back is interesting detail indeed. Good eye. Good thing she did not accessorise much, would have taken the attention away from the lovely top.
