I spied this sweater at local boutique Equation while taking an A/C break during a sweltering art fair in early June. I left it behind, daydreamed about it for two weeks, and then caved and bought it. The skull on the back isn’t printed on, it’s made of real stitches in thin black thread. I also loved the two black bands on the right sleeve and subtly curved hem which give the sweater a bit more personality from the front. Though the back is the best part, obviously.

    I’m really liking the curved, shaped, slit, and asymmetrical hems that have been around for the last couple years. They are a lot more interesting, and IMHO flattering on more people, than a perfectly straight line across the hips.

    I love subtle details that really elevate a simple piece. That sweater is a great find. Hopefully it was on sale since it was off-season in June!

    Would you ever consider tailoring those pants to eliminate the baggy knees and calves? I feel like that style top would look fantastic with a really slim pant. You could also tailor them to an ankle length and then wear the ankle boots with them without having to stretch the pant over the boot. They would either just hit the top of the boot or the boot shaft would go over the pant.
