A222274 - Linea by Louis Dell'Olio 3/4 Sleeve Jewel Neck Striped Sweater
I had bought the black version earlier and decided I wanted the navy green one. Luckily it was still available in my size. I am a 1X. The sweater is very slimming and I feel very polished in it. I plan to wear the navy green one more in the spring with navy and white skirt or pants.. It also works with a pair of red pants I own. Runs true to size though if you are bigger busted you might want to go up.
NOT for Busty women!
To me,this sweater looks better on-line than on- person! I purchased the black sweater & was surprised that the pink stripes were,well, a VIVID shocking pink! I could live w/that but I have an ample bust(40C) & the stripe falls right @ the bottom of my bust and looks Very UNFLATTERING! That kind of emphasis I DO NOT NEED! Also,I didn't care for the fabric! Definitely NOT for a Northern Winter climate! I'm returning it!
I am late to the game on this one and have recently bought both colors. They are so flattering. I wear a large, and I swear they make you look like you've lost 15 pounds -- who wouldn't love that?!? The fabric is lightweight and I love the color combination in both. Grab this if your size is still available!
I enjoy both colour combinations and find the stripes surprisingly flattering. I also like my black with red stripes down the arms sweater wonderful to wear. Very happy with these purchases.
wish there were 10 stars
loving this top cannot say it clear enough. I was super impressed when this came. the fabric was beautiful, felt nice, came with repair strings and it fit super well. its my first LDL top...went to get the other color but none in my size...I can see why all of his shows sell out. QVC needs to make larger orders from Louis!!!
Stripes that Flatter!!
I love stripes in tops but because I am plus size I often return as they don't look good. Not with this sweater - I am going back for the other color. I am a warm person so this is as heavy a sweater that I would wear - which makes this 3/4 of the year for me. Couldn't wear on hot humid day but all the other days - great. I love the illusion created by the color and size of the stripes. Very resourceful and again, very flattering. Any designer that can make plus size gals look this great is a blessing. thank you
Comfortable and flattering!
I bought the navy. It fits great, I'l be wearing this underneath the green d/b pea jacket, the navy blazer and alone as a chic, casual top. Navy slacks, white slacks...perfect!
I'm am narrow through the shoulders, small busted and bigger through the hips. This sweater balances out my figure beautifully. I think I stand taller in this sweater! It's a finer gauge so I think it will be great spring to fall, then it will go nicely under a jacket in colder weather.
Perfection even in 3x
I have been looking at this sweater for a while and the reviews convinced me to buy it. I am big busted so I went up a size to be sure the stripes do not hug. I love the light weight and I wear a lot of black and white in the summer. This is going to be a much used sweater and great for travel since the thin weave will fit great under an jacket or raincoat. Thanks Louis
Want More Colors!
I purchased the navy combo in my usual Linea size and loved it so much for the fit and style that I immediately ordered the black combo. The layout of the stripes make this sharp looking and the trompe l'oeil or deceive the eye effect that the stripes play on the body gives everyone a waist and no emphasis on your hips. I would love this in a purple or an olive or espresso brown color combination. The package wrinkles easily steamed out and washing this on cold wash/rinse inside out and then hanging to dry makes this top perfect for travel be it in a car or an airplane for an extended number of hours.
Agree this top is flattering!
Love this so much, thanks Louis! Got the navy and this will go perfectly with white jeans.
Love this sweater, SO FLATTERING!!!
Like other reviews I was hesitant on ordering a striped sweater, but Louis did a gorgeous job in designing this sweater. It is soooooo flattering. I ordered the blue in xxs and I am now back for the black/pink. Gorgeous sweater, try it you will love it!!!!
