1970s Halston Brown Nylon Jersey Sheer Top Cardigan

I have this in both a taupe-chocolate and black, and I think they are very chic. They have that cool, sleek minimal feel that Halston excelled at. The longer cut makes them incredibly versatile as well since you can wear it as a top or layer it and use it as a long, fitted cardigan. This is the brown version and it is made of a stretch jersey in two weights. A heavier, more opaque version is used for the front and sides and then a lighter, semi-transparent version gives a sexy twist to the sleeves and back. These fit skinny and fitted and were a bit tiny on my mannequin, hence the low button front. They do button up one more from what you see. It is insanely comfortable once on and very sexy. Excellent condition

Unlined with an opaque front and sides. The sleeves and back are semi-transparent. Buttons to close at the front and there are two buttons on each cuff.
