Rag & Bone Talia V-Neck Sweater


                  RAG & BONE 'Talia' V-Neck Sweater, available at shopbop or Neiman Marcus



















This updated take on a cricket sweater from Rag & Bone's Spring 2014 collection has everything going for it -- a bit of nostalgia (read an interesting history of the tennis/cricket sweater, here), definite prep-school sporty vibe, and bold graphic lines that highlight an exaggerated (and surprisingly provocative -- see images from the S/S 2014 show, below) v-neck. It's already won 'most popular' in its graduating class, dubbed 'spring's most wanted' and 'editor uniform' by Harper's Bazaar and Elle. Apparently, everyone is wearing it (they are, I google image searched it).


Part of its appeal is its versatility. Denim is a natural choice, see Andy, below, and Columbine, to the right, or Alessandra Ambrosio pairing hers with boyfriend jeans and Chanel espadrilles. Or with a skirt, as they were originally styled in the label's spring show, like Robyn, above, and the lovely Liv Tyler layering her black 'Talia' knit over a light slip of a dress.

The black and turquoise are sold out online, but you can still find the white at shopbop or Neiman Marcus ($395). For a remarkably similar version, check out Nasty Gal ($58).
