It's a Wrap!

Sweater that is =)
Part blanket, part sweater -  a wrap is ideal for travel, running errands or simply lounging around the house. You can wear it open with a scarf, layer it under a coat or belt it, like I've done here, for a more put-together look.
Compared to a regular button cardigan, a wrap sweater is feminine and interesting. Perfect for those who want to look chic and pretty in a casual sort of way.
What I love most is that there are no fussy buttons to deal with so it is hassle-free and low maintenance. It allows me to layer pieces underneath without the bulkiness because I can easily cinch it with a belt to create a sleek silhouette. Cozy up with a wrap sweater and you sure won't go cold this winter season!

Sweater :: Gap (here)
Pants :: Rampage via Macy's
