This professional and sleek pullover features soft cabled bell sleeves, and the side ribbing gives it a body-hugging silhouette. The design is worked from the bottom up in pieces, and it’s finished with a cozy turtleneck.

Inspired by Scottish tartans, this preppy, oversized cardigan is ready for a chilly library, reading on the quad, or a beer at the local pub.
