Product Review: Stylish Pullover for Cool Weather Activities


Ally TopAspen & Pine’s Ally Top is the perfect pullover hoodie for running errands around town or light activity in cooler weather. Made of a polyester cotton blend, this top layer features a wide hood with draw strings, a front kangaroo pouch, and elbow length arms. 

The product photos illustrate the Ally Top on a size small model. To show the diversity of this piece, a size XL tester was used. The tester has an hour glass shape with a bust of 46.6 inches. Initially, the tester was concerned about her larger bust in the top, but was pleasantly surprise to find that her breasts fit comfortably without lifting the front hem. To test the piece, she went on a brisk 2.5 mile walk around the park, and paired it with a sports bra and capri sport pants. The weather was in the high 60s, dry, no wind, and very low humidity.

 Ally Top 

The polyester blend allows the Ally Top to serve as a chilly to cool weather top layer. It can be paired nicely with a tight tank top underneath if layering is desired. Recommended for light activity such as grocery shopping, brunch, or hanging out around the campfire, you may find this top retains too much body heat during higher level activities. However, the weave and fabric allows you to wear this top out for a casual night with friends or Happy Hour if you pair it with some skinny jeans or fashionable leggings. The cropped arms are perfect for adding some flashy or chunky bracelets, depending on your style.

Available in marl (a grey tone created by weaving two different color threads), the top will match nicely with black, white, fall colors, and some neon colors like orange or yellow. Neon green and pastels may not create the best color combination.

Ally Size Suggestion

The Ally Top is loose fitting and ends at the hip, it is recommended for straight, hourglass, top hourglass, and inverted triangle body shapes. Those with body shapes that have larger hip ratios may find the tapered cut less comfortable. 

Overall, the Ally Top is perfect for your grab and go, cool weather pullover. It’s fashionable lines and style make it versatile for casual outings or light activities. Topping it all off, the fabric and construction will mean that this piece will have a long life, complement your wardrobe, and satisfy your active life style for spring and fall weather for years to come.
