As cozy as it is classic, this piece has a knack for drawing out an extra dose of style and character.

Cozy french terry made from 100% certified organic cotton, lined with organic cotton jersey.

Designed to play well with others; an excellent core piece for pairing with coordinating tops and bottoms as part of a capsule wardrobe.
