        LOL!!!!!! Kudos. Its made to be worn as she is wearing it. Otherwise it wouldn’t stay overlapped like it is. Thats got to be pretty obvious to anyone.

    An unusual touch to this 'comfy' chic outfit, I feel like I could snuggle right into this image – colours are so soothing

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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

    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!

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
