Like this even more than I thought I would. I was really torn between med and large, but medium was perfect and love the forest night color.
I love how easy it is to throw on the winona over my dress or with pants and it instantly adds style and warmth. It is soft and cosy so it's so easy to wear. I could have gone with the xs, but I wanted to be able to layer underneath it and I like the extra room. The forest night is a beautiful dark neutral that is classy and cordinates with my clothes well. I wasn't sure about the color or cardigan, but I love it! I am short and rectangular shape and it works well for me. I wanted a layer I could wear with anyting and this is it!
Lately I've been wearing these as a blazer/jacket for work, and they fit right in even in formal settings (business meetings in DC). I prefer them over traditional blazers because they're more comfortable, they regulate temperature, and they're less bulky on my petite frame. If you pair the black color with black pants it absolutely looks like you're wearing a suit.
This cardigan was more structured than I realized it would be and that is a good thing, more professional than I anticipated so it would have been a great work jacket.
Just don't make the mistake I did of accidentally drying it in the dryer before you wear it because it will shrink the sleeves enough to be unwearable. : ( So that's super sad.
A small was the right size for me.
I have worn this cardigan this winter as a layering piece. The design is easy and elegant. I gave it 4 starts because I didn't want a black jacket so chose the forest green. I don't care for the muted/muddy color and it doesn't go well with most of my dresses. I wear it in casual settings because of this. If there were more colors, I would definitely purchase again and wear it more often. Would be a great piece to have with spring/summer dresses when the temperatures cool down. I am right on the line between S and M and chose S for this purchase. The cropped style is a good length for my height. Fits very well.
