Swackets

It’s a sweater!  No, it’s a jacket!  It’s a...swacket?  Ok, so I made up the term “swacket”.  Just now.  But the term is needed to describe something new that I’ve seen cropping up in the last year or two.  It’s part jacket, part sweater, completely cozy and totally stylish.  It has the look of a jacket but the feel...
