Can a chunky sweaterÂ be sexy? If itâ€™s this open-weave, off-the-shoulder number from Emerson, the answer is a resounding yes. Emerging designer Jackie Fraser-Swan, an East Bridgewater native, named the label after her distant relative Ralph Waldo Emerson (itâ€™s also her middle name), and says her clothing is for â€śthe modern woman whoâ€™s not afraid to stand out in the crowd and likes to be a little edgy.â€ť Take this nubby knit to the streets with leather leggings and tough ankle boots, or simply pull it on and while away a snowy afternoon by the fire.
Wool, mohair, and nylon sweater, $590, Emerson, 857-753-4525, emerson-collection.com.
