Style: 40366627 Color Code:
Effortlessly slouchy open cardi featuring a ribbed fabrication and relaxed rolled sleeve cuffs. Side pocket details.
Adorable, but slips off shoulders
This would be a 5 star item if it didn't constantly slip off the shoulder. I'm 5-10, average weight & almost always a Medium or Large in Free People, but I went with the XS/S on this one after reading other reviews that it slipped off the shoulders, but even sizing down, it still has super long sleeves & slips off. Otherwise, I do love it.
I received this cardigan in the mail 2 days ago and I have been wearing it ever since. Its so comfy and the baggy over sized fit is surprisingly flattering. The big sleeves take a little getting used to, but I still love them. The down side is that the color isn't really accurate to whats online. I bought the black, but its definitely more of a faded black with hints of greyish purple. Its still a nice color, just not really as advertised. I will probably be buying it in other colors.
Okay so here's the thing with this cardigan- once you embrace the fact that it's an oversized, drop shouldered, loose sleeve, you may actually like it. I've worn it once to work, and struggled a bit because I was still cold in it. It's a cotton blend, so I probably should have worn a warmer cardi on a cold day. This sweater is probably better on a more mild day- plus, I couldn't put my winter coat over it. So now I'm wondering if this should be worn in leu of a coat- again, on a more mild day. I like it though, and had to accept it for what it is! It's a departure for me, because I tend to wear loose fitting cardigans that have snug arms to sort of balance it all out. Since buying this in the dark grey, I found it on another store online on a major discount, so I now have the Cream one on it's way to me. Give it a try- you may end up liking it :) BTW, I went with the XS/SM - I'm 5'7", 31" bust, 26" waist, 34" hip. It's very oversized.
Adore this sweater. Careful when it comes to colors though. The coal combo in the picture looks kinda purple but in person it 100 percent looks like a black/or dark gray sweater! Love it! Colors is just different in picture
It does look the same as the picture but somehow not as flattering as shown in the pics, also the quality isn't that good, it is acceptable to have threads on knits but I see the tendency of these threads turning into holes, which is a big disappointment when you paid that much money and are expecting something at least with decent quality. I had many pieces from FP that i love a lot but not this one, it has to go back.
Hi Rosiieeey, I'm sorry to hear about your cardigan. Someone will be in touch with you about this! -Free People
Color off a little
I ordered this sweater because I thought the plum color was gorgeous. It says plum but in the picture it is more of a cranberry. I just loved the color. I received it today and it is not cranberry looking but true plum which is fine if you like that color. It is definitely more dull looking in person then in the picture. I'm going to return it because if I pay that much for something I want to love it and I just don't like this color in person. It runs large which I expected since it's an Xs/sm instead of xs. It looks as pictured except for the color.
