Gin and Tonic PDF
If you want a real wardrobe basic, something that would go with everything - in color, design and feel - and Gin and Tonic is that sweater! There are still details here, but they are understated so that the sweater reads as classic and versatile enough for all sorts of outfits. Distinct cables along each side of the body are given tails that play into the hem at the hip, and they split under the arm to create the lines of the yoke. The texture motif is simple to work and makes a delicate background without being overwhelming. And a soft, comfy cowl is just cozy.
