I really love this sweater. The intricate collar provides a really interesting and unique focal point to an otherwise simple piece. Also, I don’t have a lot of white/cream in my wardrobe, so this top brings something new to my closet. And it was ridiculously cheap, but it doesn’t look cheap. I like it so much, I wish I had bought duplicates. This weekend I’m going on the annual shopping trip with all the women in Cory’s family, and I am making it my mission to find this sweater in burnt orange, the other color H&M shows on the website. My only complaint is that it is a tad bit short- I never thought I had a particularly long torso, but this sweater could use another inch or three in length. This may very well be the best $10 I’ve spent all season.

    Thank you, ladies! Tina, I’ll definitely look at Ann Taylor and Banana this weekend for a sequin skirt. Thanks for the tip!

    Such a cozy yet cool sweater! I love it when sweaters have funky details like that. I call them “lazy day” pieces – you don’t need to add much to it; it’s an outfit all by itself! (Though I love the cool bracelets and purse you added.)

    What an amazing neck detail! I’m checking my H&M for this sweater now to wear tucked into the front of my high waist jeans…you inspired me! Good luck finding more colors. And good luck finding a sequin skirt. Banana has a pretty cream color right now and Ann Taylor has a black mini (and they’re 40% off Friends and Family).

    p.s. I love the bracelet stack. So cool with your sweater!

    Your sweater really does not look like it was $10. I love finding hidden treasures like that
