Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Long Sleeve Drape Front Stripe Cardigan
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE THIS CARDIGAN!
Purchased this Cardigan in the Blue/Black combination - did size up one size and am glad I did. So comfortable - yet stylish - feel very chic in it! Looks fantastic with my skinny jeans - or dress pants - or straight knit skirt. Perfectly proportioned - do not like this style when the front drapes way too long. Love Linea - Louis should be on air MORE - Please!
AMAZING CARDIGAN !!!!
This cardigan / jacket is fabulous. The fabric is soft and supple and obviously of great quality. The fabric in front folds naturally and stays in place. I was very hesitant about ordering "stripes" because I am a size 1X and feared It would be unflattering on me. Not true I'm happy to say. This cardigan was obviously designed for all shapes and sizes - definitely NOT just for extra small, small and medium. I ordered the Blue and Black and am back to order either the Black and White or Black and Grey, maybe I'll just order one of each. Don't hesitate to order this one, it's a keeper.
A Great Look
I love this jacket. It is a great look to wear over tank and leggings or slim jeans. Love the fabric and style. I got the black and gray and will be going back for more. Thank you Louis.
Perfect little something for jeans or skirt.
Like so many of us, I'm always on the hunt for something to wake up my wardrobe of jeans and black skirts. I bought the black and ivory (way out of my comfort zone) sweater and could not be more pleased with how well it pairs with all the basics in my closet. The fabric is substantial but soft and the fit is true to Linea sizing. As with all Linea knitwear, I bought this is an XS and it's a great fit. I've had a chance to launder on gentle, laid flat to dry and it came out perfect and like new. If you're thinking wide stripes won't be flattering or will overwhelm you, I can only say that I have few, few pieces in my closet that aren't solid colors, and I feel very comfortable in these stripes. Love!
Leave it to Louis to design a stripe sweater that is right on trend and so very stylish. The black/white is bold and fresh and the knit fabric is soft and comfortable. Love it! Thank you, Louis!
Stepped out of my comfort zone, LUV this!:)
I'm a size large, 5'5 and ordered the grey, a more subdued combo. This looks fabulous belted! I'm so glad I ordered. You can wear this with everything, but I will stick with grey and black, more tonal. So there's no confusion, this isn't a sweater.
I can't describe the quality except as fabulous. This sweater hangs so well. It is so expensive looking. Far exceeds my expectation
Since receiving this sweater, I have wore it 3 times already...to a birthday
party, work and around town. It is a nice weight material, soft and comfortable
and when you wash it on gentle and lay it flat to dry it comes out looking
brand new again! I love it! The diagonal stripes that drape in the front
are very complementary. I too am 5'4' and I think it looks great!
I will definitely buy another sweater of this line because I love the
material and styling!
Style with stripes
I bought the ivory and bamboo in size large, I love the look and style and fabric, I will wear it with ivory slacks and tee. This garment is the perfect weight for spring and cool summer days. Love it and Louis.
Yup, I like it !!
Seriously, I stayed away from this style from other makers as they appeared sloppy, flimsy and unflattering. I waited until Louis came out with HIS version of this newer style and did not hesitate to order the black/grey combo. I love the way the shoulders are tailored and the proportionate fabric drape down the front of the garment ( I wear an xs.) as well as the fabric itself. Ah, Louis, what would so many of us do without your sense of style, spot on tailoring and flare for color and fabric design !! I so appreciate your expertise and fashion packed shows on the Q !!
Oh, So Sad To Return
This cardigan is so pretty on. I bought the bamboo/white and wanted to wear with white jeans. The sleeves were very long on me (I'm a petite), and after calling and getting a price on having the sleeves shortened, I couldn't justify the money. For anyone who is not a petite, don't hesitate on this. The material is very nice and it draped beautifully in the front. Louis - please make petites or more 3/4 length sleeves - your designs are beautiful.
Lovely Cardigan - - Just not for Me
This is a beautiful cardigan, but over helmed me! Too much fabric and too large for my size. I'm 5'4" and a small in this line. Had to return
