I’ve purchased the Marci sweater in EVERY color released (Black, Burgandy, Mint, and Olive will be in my hands soon) so far; that’s how much I love it! The knot is so warm and cozy. The ties in the back allow you to make it as tight or loose as you like. I wore it on date night/birthday dinner with a looser tie in the back for a sexier look for my man...he loved it! The knit allowed me to still stay warm for outdoor dining with was a Huge plus! I’m going to buy every single color that’s released! It runs true to size and is not cropped in front at all! I didn’t have to size up for tummy coverage and showed just enough of my back with the looser tie. I’ve also worn it to work with a tighter tie in the back and nothing showed.
