Real vs. Steal – Acne Lia Cable-Knit Cotton Sweater

All I can think of is how much this minty sweater reminds me of the Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 color palette. I’m ready to pair this cozy knit from Acne with a great pair of white jeans or some fitted capris and espadrilles. The color goes surprisingly well with Spring neutrals like white, sand, and golden khaki, as well as some unexpected shades like sun-washed pink, lilac and coral. I can see it all coming together like a spontaneous weekend escape to the beach, but a quality knit like this could set you back a few hundred dollars unless you’re lucky enough to have a friend in the know. Well, you do! Can you guess what we found?

Amazing, right? Leave it to ASOS to provide us with this lovely confection. This sweater is perfect for a stroll along a windy shore and if it’s too chilly to wear it solo, layer it under a cozy trench and add a pretty printed scarf. Either way, you’ll be sweeter than a box of conversation hearts. So, what are you waiting for? Get one for yourself and start packing for that romantic weekend!
