We want clothes that help our style and personality shine, not pieces that dull our glow and leave us feeling drab. But, hold on. We don’t want them to outshine us, either. We want to be the ones wearing them, not the other way around. Basically, we need a simple, safe bet that looks like a risk we pulled off flawlessly. It sounds a bit complicated, but we’re about to make it very, very easy.
The Shimmering Bateau-Neck Dolman Sweater from New York & Company is that safe bet, but no one would ever know it. It literally helps us shine with its metallic, yet understated finish, while its relaxed fit and unique accents perfect the look. It’s 50% off right now and we’re scrambling to get every color!
Shoppers are calling this dolman sweater both “comfortable” and “elegant.” One said they loved the oversized fit and how the neckline is big enough that they can choose to wear it as an off-the-shoulder top whenever they feel like it. Another said how after they bought this sweater, they “received so many compliments,” which we’re not at all surprised by but still very happy to hear! Compliments are like dessert. We always want them, but we don’t want to ask for them. Sometimes, people just insist anyway, and we are eternally grateful.
At the top of this sweater, we have the bateau neckline, which is better known as a boat neckline. It’s wide and looks fabulous with chokers or longer chain necklaces, if we choose to wear one at all! Whether we’re pulling it down off one or both shoulders, a bateau neckline instantly adds class to an outfit. We can even coordinate our bra straps to mix and match and throw in an extra detail to our look!
This sweater is ribbed throughout, the ribbing pattern changing directions depending on which part of the sweater we’re looking at. On the torso, the pattern is a downward diagonal running toward the waist for a flattering effect. On the sleeves, the ribbing begins as horizontal, but changes to vertical at the dropped shoulder seam we know to expect from a dolman-style sweater. This detailing helps the fit stand out in a confident yet carefree way.
The ribbing was already scoring style points with Us, but it’s not even the main accent! In the center of the front is an open-stitch detail, which forms two vertical lines of tiny punctures that run down to the hem, which hits at the hip. These little holes are tiny enough to not cause a see-through effect, but more than visible enough to make this sweater something super special.
This sweater is currently available in four colors, all of which shimmer and shine in their own way. For a darker shade, there’s Rich Navy, a dark blue with bits of metallic threads acting as stars in the sky. Look closely to see just how colorful those stars can be, with hints of blue, pink and gold!
The other three colors are on the lighter side, ready to help us rock a springtime-chic look. Sassy Purple is a pastel, periwinkle-like shade. If we’d prefer things on the slightly pinker side, there’s Cherry Blossom. We can also choose to keep it completely neutral with the ready-to-wear, ready-to-pair Winter White!
This sweater can easily be styled with jeans or slacks, sneakers, heels, flats, wedges . . . are we making ourselves clear? This sweater can be paired with basically anything! This isn’t a sweater we solely reserve for sick days at home or for extra layering in the freezer aisle at the grocery store. Of course, it works well for those occasions too, but don’t limit its versatility! Wear it for work and play all day, every day!
So, who’s going to shine with Us? But more importantly, in what color? We’re forever indecisive, but when a deal is this good we know we have to make a choice. The thing is, there’s no reason to worry, because whichever choice we make is going to lead to happiness when that package shows up on our doorstep and a happy day is only a layer of packaging away.
