Lambswool shirttail sweater in blue (b1225, $98) runs XXS – XXL. Color choices are electric red and heather carbon. The sweater is 100% wool. The shirttail is 100% cotton.
Size XS – heather carbon – I had a feeling I should size down one from S to XS and that was the right choice. My chest measured 38″ across the fullest part as of a couple weeks ago. I’ve been working out regularly and am hopeful that things are changing! Looking in the mirror after every workout probably isn’t speeding anything up. Yeah, I do that.
The sleeves weren’t too tight, which is nice. They could’ve been a little more fitted in the forearm, toward the wrist. Keep that in mind if you have narrow wrists. Mine are medium in size. I’m not a fan of the blue they used on the shirt part. It’s that purple-y, cool blue. Not a chambray blue. I liked the sweater a lot with the pearl cluster necklace (review). Although, the pearls contrasted in a way that made the sweater look a more casual. I’d forgo the pearls unless I wore the look with a blazer. A drop necklace like this one by Keneth Cole and this $32 number at Nordstrom.
I liked the weave a lot. The question is, is it a piller?
Ann Taylor has one, too. Cheetah print layered sweater
What do you think about the longer shirt under the sweater?
