Gorgeous and fun.
The Kuhl Women's Lea Pullover Sweatshirt is so lightweight and soft that you’ll be constantly trying to find an excuse to wear it. Semi-fitted to highlight your figure and designed with a relaxed cowl neck, drawcord, and thumbholes, it feels at home in the yoga studio or downtown at the local bookstore. Polyester and spandex combine to offer a flexible fit while wicking away moisture for comfort as you move. And since this top has a pouch pocket and flatlock seams with Dynamik stitching, it is durable and smooth so you have room to layer under a jacket or over a comfy tank top.

I purchased this "sweatshirt" in the versatile light grey color over 2 years ago and it has been one of my all time favorite wardrobe pieces. It is slightly fitted which makes it flattering. I've worn it extensively for everyday casual wear, hiking, camping and travel yet, it still looks like new.
Because I have a short torso this top fits me more like a tunic (unlike the pic of the model). For this reason it looks great w/black yoga pants, black leggings and skinny jeans w/boots.
The material is not super thick like most "sweatshirts" which makes it more versatile. Since I overheat easily I enjoy that this top is not exceedingly warm. I can wear it as a stand alone top during the mild PNW Fall months or with a thin base layer for extra warmth during the colder winter months. It is made of soft material which is not prone to wrinkle making it an excellent choice for travel.
Normally I dislike anything with a cowl neck. The extra folds of fabric overwhelm my petite frame and cause me to look dowdy however, this top really works for me. The cords at the neck serve as added interest but also to cinch up the "cowl" so it doesn't look like a cowl neck at all. I love the thumbholes and kangaroo pouch in front for holding small items (keys or cell phone) when going for a walk or to the store. The contrast stitching throughout the garment also adds interest. The fabric seems to also resist stink when exercising and sweating.
I have enjoyed this top so much that I picked up another color (black) during the Black Friday sale. For reference I am 5'2" 120 lbs 33-34C/D and got this in S. I could get away with wearing XS but wanted a looser fit to accommodate a base layer for winter. I'd not change anything about this top but do wish there were more interesting colors to select from. Highly recommend!!

I love this sweatshirt! Its light enough and yet still amazingly warm. It looks good for a casual night out without looking too much like a sweatshirt but also does its job on the trail without being too bulky. Really - I love this shirt and bought 2 in different colours.
