I would never have considered this very light sweater if it was not on sale and I had Rcash to spend as well, because it is quite pricey. But the price was good so I gave it a try. I really loved the fit and colour. The weight is perfect- very light and comfortable. I would not consider this top workout wear at all as it is definitely a sweater - but I feel it can be worn casually or dressed up a little with dark jeans and booties. I love that it is not clingy and has the draw string at the bottom. The neckline is high, but the double layer effect gives it style. I received quite a few compliments when I wore it last. Good news is it washes well in the machine in cold and hung to dry. It's been washed twice (I spilled on it -twice) and it still looks great- no pilling ( I despise a sweater that pills!). Overall a great purchase on sale (but I would not pay full price for it).
