The outfit has toned down over the last one but Steffy has def not. Nice strong lines with this sweater. You would think you would need to be a 6 footer to wear this (I tried it on my last Nordstrom trip), but Steffy proves a petite gal can carry it off too. I think the piping adds the extra cool factor and also makes it look more defined and… well…like the expensive item it is. And fyi I didn’t buy it; me and cropped sweaters stopped loving each other about 15 years ago.
