Rated 5 out of 5┬áby reneew Subtle Shimmer & Shine
From the online photo, you might miss that this cardigan shimmers with silver, metallic threads that are woven throughout this delicate sweater, creating a "frosted" appearance. The metallic thread is subtle, though, so it can easily be worn casually as well as dressy. I use "delicate" to describe the sweater because the hand is light, but this sweater is well-made. It is not a sweater to keep you warm, but rather it is a perfect layering piece. I chose my usual size medium. For reference, I am a size 8/10 on top, 34D, and I have broad shoulders.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby pjaalt just okay
This was just okay for me. You can't tell from the picture, but it actually has a lot of metallic thread in it which cheapened the look for me. I really liked the buttons up top, but overall the material was too thin and see-through for me. It was a little too boxy when buttoned up for my taste. I tried on the XS (5'2", 101 pounds, 32A-25-32).

I didn't notice this online, and even when I saw it on sale, I passed over it a couple times before my mom suggested I try it on. The metallic threads are super noticeable in person, and I thought it was a little cheesy. When I put it on, however, I was totally smitten. The fair isle print paired with the grandpa details make this absolutely adorable on, not too casual or dressy. I could wear this to teach or to dinner. I'm 5'8 and wear a 4 (sometimes a 2) in tops, and this fit perfectly in a XS, not tight in the arms or body, even when buttoned. It hit just below my hip bone. Love love.
