One Size, One Style, One Sweater by Avalin
Posted on 28 October 2016
In a palette of colors certain to accommodate every Florida wardrobe, the Avalin Cotton Pullover is the ONE sweater, in ONE style and ONE size, that will take you from Key Largo to Worth Avenue, from Downtown Naples to Downtown Disney and back home again. That's a pretty big claim - and a lot to expect from one cotton sweater - yet it is true! Just one.
Avalin has been making cotton sweaters for years so they have refined the art of designing soft, comfortable, breathable slub cotton knit in sweaters that drape casually and complement almost every figure. The savvy buyers at Anthony's recognized this one particular style for the versatile silhouette it is and then ordered it in a variety of colors knowing that customers will soon be big fans of this pullover.
The cut is universally flattering, with a scoop neck that's not too low but looks great when layered over t-shirts, tank tops, sundresses or blouses. Gentle ribbing at the sleeves allows them to be pushed back or rolled up and the on-trend high-low hemline covers the bum without overwhelming a petite figure. Dress it up by adding long statement necklaces and a cool wedge-heel shoe or keep it low-key casual by wearing it over shorts with flip-flops, sandals or white sneakers. Oh, and Avalin sweaters are machine washable, too.
Colors available are gorgeous shades of aqua, coral, green, soft butter yellow, ocean blue and periwinkle - a purple-based blue that looks fantastic on everyone. 'Desert' is a sophisticated neutral that looks sensational paired with black, crisp white or other neutrals. Perhaps most notable in the assortment is the white: oddly, white sweaters in just the right weight and texture have been frustratingly elusive in Florida - until now. This white pullover will no doubt become a wardrobe staple - but it's completely okay to own more than one or two colors!
To anyone unfamiliar with our Florida lifestyle, wearing a sweater in a balmy climate might seem silly or superfluous. But for those of us who live here or visit regularly, we know what it's like to shiver inside an air-conditioned restaurant on an otherwise sultry evening. We know how chilly it is in malls and museums, offices and supermarkets. The answer is the Avalin Cotton Pullover Sweater, for days and evenings, now and 6 months from now. Keep one in the car, drape it over your shoulders or slip in on - this is the ONE sweater you won't want to be without wherever you go.
