Rated 5 out of 5Â by k21921 Warm and Fun Sweatercoat
I don't really understand the expectations of the other reviewers, the sweater fits and wears exactly as pictured. Its bulky, thick, and fits like a sweatercoat. Its too thick to be fitted and the nature of it lends itself to a bulkier and warm piece. I picked this up yesterday and am wearing it today. Its longer and very warm and the pattern is more of an abstract fairisle in a muted lime, white, and blue hue on a black background. I did cut off the tassel on the zipper, but other than its great! I paired mine with a white long sleeve tshirt, chunky scarf, slim black pants, and a knee high boot. I bought my typical size medium and am happy with this item on a chilly winter day.

Great longer sweater. Love that it has a tassled zip. Great to throw on over jeans and a top. Fits TTS.

Â by AnthroliciousParrot I love it!!
I wasn't expecting much from this sweater when i ordered it. But I thought it would be a good throw on sweater for the price. I had not read the reviews before ordering, and I am glad I did not. Otherwise I would not have ordered it.
I love it!!! First the sizing. I am 5'4 100lbs 32A. I am always XS and sometimes sized out when things run large. In this I ordered XS and it fits PERFECT!!! It is not huge but loose enough so I can comfortably layer it. The sleeves are not tight at all, they are loose enough for a layer but still have shape. If you wear this as a dress, yes it will be boxy. But come on its a sweater coat. I have worn this with light cotton long sleeves top and with a sweater. It fits great both ways. The sleeves are not tight. It has whole comfortable vibe going. Granted its not the one that will be skin fitting showing off your curves, it looks beautiful and comfortable. I think its true to size for a sweater coat since you will be wearing layers under it.
Fit - It looks great zipped or open. I have worn it both ways. The tassel on zipper is a nice touch.
I love the colors too. It goes with everything.
Feel - Its nice thick knitted sweater coat. The material is thick and soft. I did NOT find it itchy. And I am very sensitive to the itch factor. I have worn this with short sleeves top and I had absolutely no issues.
Definitely give this a try. It won't be your fashion statement piece. But a great comfortable and good looking piece. I love mine. Specially for the price....its a steal.
