The long back sweater

I love the look of a sweater with cropped front and a longer back. The first one that caught my eye was an Alexander Wang sweater some time ago (last year?) and I loved it. I never lost hope to find a real life sweater at a more affordable price, and after some time guess who made the perfect sweater I was waiting for ? It is amazing how the spanish giant captures trends and releases key pices just when you want them...

Other brands have done similar styles but Zara's version is my favorite. The fit is perfect and on the top of that it comes in a very subtle light pink right on the pastels trend.

I styled Zara's sweater here below and as you can see, this sweater goes with everything. It is one of these basics that I will live in for the next few months. (I'm sorry about the bad quality pictures, I'll need to ask my husband for some camera tips!).

How about you, do you also like this sweater style?

What do you think of my styling and how would you wear this sweater?
