Designers showing sweaters that button up the back is not exactly new. Marc Jacobs did it in his Fall 2010 collection, Vogue’s February edition features a lemon yellow Max Mara bodysuit that does the same. Then there are the sweater girls of the 1950s who we can possibly credit for originating the trend by turning around their crewneck cardigans.
But there is something so intriguing about the styling of this conventional v neck sweater, turned backwards, by J. Crew. Turning around a v neck sweater and buttoning it up the back is so deliberate, it’s more engaging than donning a top that is cut to be backless.
What do you think? Are you willing to give this look a spin?
