The inspiration for the Botero Pullover appeared during an autumn walk in the woods. The neutral color choices hint at the forest understory, but you can make the pullover your own with the colors of your choice. The foldover collar has this transitional season in mind; it brings warmth without the close fit of a traditional turtleneck, and the asymmetrical angle of the collar creates a flattering angle. When temperatures dip, tuck the cowl into the neckline for extra warmth.
