I bought this sweater a few years ago from Betabrand, partially with referral credits, and even though it wasn’t in a terribly versatile color (a rosy pink), I found myself reaching for it every time I traveled. I recently misplaced the darn sweater (it’s around here somewhere, I just know it), and I miss it so much I’m considering getting a second in a black or gray.
The big pros for me, particularly for travel: it’s got deep, zippered pockets (big enough to fit your Kindle!), a hood to block out the world if you want to, thumbholes, and it’s long enough to a) layer over a dress or leggings if you want to, b) tie at your waist.
(The hood is not waterproof, but if you’re rocking a blowout and don’t want a few drops of rain to hit you as you run from a cab into your destination, the hood will help a bit. The hood also apparently converts to a sleeping mask, but I’ve never used that feature.) It’s $129 at Betabrand. (Huh, and apparently it comes in a dress format as well!) Pictured: Red Eye Wrap
Readers, any other favorites from Betabrand? I know we’ve obviously featured their well-known yoga-work pants, as well as this flat backpack designed to help you hide a laptop beneath a jacket — but they’ve got a lot of interesting things. If you’ve never ordered from Betabrand before, try this referral link to get $15 off your first order.
Looking for something similar but more affordable? I’ve actually ordered dresses from this brand before, so for $32 this sweater is a very intriguing dupe…
