There are a few pieces that hit the sartorial sweet spot when it comes to marrying style and comfort. The cardigan is the perfect mesh of a casual sweater with around five buttons to add formality. Sweat shorts have the comfort of your favorite Sunday sweats while being able to wear them in the sweltering heat. Well, the pullover that I'm styling above by rue21 is the perfect mesh between short sleeve button down and henley.
A 4 button placket is what sets a pullover apart from most button downs, and 9 times out of 10 you'll find them in a geometric print. These are especially reserved for casual occasions... so stick with joggers, denim, sneakers, and casual loafers if you really want to mix things up.
Unless you're experimenting on a day of 'dressing up just because', stay away from styling a pullover with a blazer for now until the menswear world gets its taste of the pullover. Who knows what we'll see this week at New York Fashion Week: Men's?
