I am wondering how you would call this kind of top for a lady? Should I call it a sweater? Or should I call it something else? BTW, what do you think of this piece of clothing item?

I would call it a cardigan. A short sleeved cardigan perhaps. It's not something I would wear but I do think it is nice. I think it woud look good with a pair of jeans and a white top underneath. Is this your top?

Exactly with a pair of jeans and white top *smiles*. It's sort of my top because I am selling this online now *smiles*.

maybe you can call it a knitted sweater or a knitted bolero(still sweater in our dialect)

oh it is one of those really short sweaters meant to be worn over a long top. I personally don't like that style on most women. I think it makes them...most...look out of proportion and brings out flaws like a not so flat belly or a flabby waist. A few women can carry it off and look absolutely stunning but most can't.

I think Top is right name. Otherwise you need not to concentrate more on name. Name is only for identifying . Top is way of identifying woman dress.

there are many different types of top clothing for ladies, as well as men. There are sweaters which are commonly knit, and there are blouses, which are more delicate shirts made of lighter fabric and some button up the front, and there are just plain shirts (more casual than blouses), sweatshirts (shirts made of heavier non-knit fabric), t-shirts (light shirts commonly with short sleeves...) etc.

hello wondericequeen i like that top lots. and it looks like a lightweight sweater top to me. i would like to have a sweater top that looks like that to wear. the grey color would go with about any kind of a bottom that a person would want to wear with the sweater top. btw, did you make the sweater? lol just wondering. if not, where did you get the sweater top at? thanks for sharing. this sweater top would look great with a black skirt. take care and have a beautiful day today!
