I was never a fan of cropped shirts or sweaters, but then I purchased the Winona. It is very flattering over the Wool& dresses because of where it hits the waist. I was worried the neckline would not stay in place and that it would flop around, but it does not because of the weight of the fabric and the cut of the lapel. Great weight to the sweater, and I like that the sleeves are bracelet-length for me. I wear it over the Sierra, but haven’t tried it over other dresses with sleeves. i almost purchased the XXL, but glad I did the XL instead. I love it so much I bought both colors!
I don't usually write reviews, but I felt inspired to for this piece because I find this blazer style cardigan so versatile! There seems to be a lot of overlap in the Wool&, Zuri, and Julahas clothing communities, and this cardigan/blazer cut and style works so well when paired with Zuri dresses or Julahas capes, especially in the winter months when you want an extra layer, it makes clothes that I might wear less in the New England winter easier to pull out of the closet.
I particularly like how the cardigan/blazer fits over the Zuri silhouette and arms. I wear a large, and tie the waist with a belt and put this cardigan over the top and feel stylish, comfortable, and warm for my office. It's a piece that is getting a lot of milage in my wardrobe, and the black color pairs with everything. I read another review that they wanted to see this in more colors that simulate suit jackets (I definitely think of it as a less structured blazer rather than a cardigan) and I agree-- I would definitely buy one in charcoal if it's offered!
Great to have an option for shorter length cardigan. It’s a heavier fabric and quite warm. Layered over my Rowena works well however if you are sensitive to pockets on your hips, it does add double pockets. I’m looking forward to trying it with other options.
For the loose fitting dressed I buy a size amall. However, with form fitting dresses I go with a medium because of my 40 inch hip measurement. For the cardigan, I wanted a looser look so I purchased a medium since it will be a second layer. It is lovely, drapes nicely and coordinates with my other wool& purchases.
With out a doubt this is one of my favorite layering pieces. It is comfortable, minimalist and sophisticated - exactly what I am looking for in a wear-to-work piece.
