Rated 4 out of 5 by Imogen The colors make it work
I was really, really skeptical about this sweater. I figured it would be at best boring and at worst ugly. I tried it on anyway, and I'm glad I did. The bright magenta and the greenish-blue really make the sweater pop and protect it from being boring. I think the colors also do a lot to minimize the curse many horizontal-striped shirts have of making you rounder. I felt my normal size!
Feels very cozy and well-made. The quality matches the price. It has one of those "please handle with care" tags, though I didn't find it particularly delicate to the eye. The only weird thing was the sleeve length...good 3 1/2 - 4 inches above the wrist, like the picture. Kind of made me feel like I'd put on a petite size that my arms were just too long in. Bring gloves for colder weather!

I totally passed on this when I saw it online but when I went into the store I HAD to try it on. The colors are much better in person and the shorter sleeves are amazing; I don't have to keep pushing them up all day long. The only size they had left at the store was an XL and I bought it because I liked the way it fit. I normally wear a small.

The colours go really well together and the fabric is soft and cosy. The mint green really gives it a burst of life. I love it! I just wish it had longer sleeves but cropped ones are still pretty nice. Please note I bought a medium but I usually wear a small - not sure if Australian sizes are different to American ones for S-M-L.
