Great tailoring and fit
A great piece to invest in for occasions, work, work occasions... Bought this in Navy. Found it true to size and very flattering. The fabric is crepe-like and drapes beautifully. Additionally, it is PERFECT for travel as it does not wrinkle. AT ALL. Best new addition to my wardrobe in years.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cut vs. Volume
I love the weight of the linen blend for summer. Like other Vince pieces, the quality is top notch. However, I had to return this piece because it looked overwhelming on my 5'4" frame (I typically wear a S in Vince and ordered a S). The blouse is cut very wide to drape at the sides, but it also hits far lower on the hip than pictured on the much taller model. It created too much volume to be flattering and looked a little bit more like a conservative Eileen Fisher piece than a hip Vince design. The top is very comfortable and easy, but the proportions are challenging. On the right frame, it would be great.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Narrow
Cut on the small side. Think narrow shoulders and hips. May want to size up. I am debating an exchange for size. The fabric is thin yet tightly knit, keeping the look very tailored. Described as a jersey, but appears/feels more like a suiting fabric. Not at all bulky. Very sleek, modern and versatile.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Cozy outerwear for the indoors
Depending on the climate, this cardigan works as a coat or as a cool, chunky sweater . Although the knit is thick, it does not add an extreme amount of bulk. As with many Vince styles, the proportions and cut make this sweater quite flattering. The hood looks great worn up and drapes nicely when not in use. You can easily overlap the front when running outside into cold weather. The hood, pockets and shawl collar are lined with a soft, fine knit. This is a lovely detail and also prevents the slightly more abrasive knit from touching sensitive skin around your neck. The color is a deep, rich charcoal and pairs beautifully with black clothing without blending into a mass of darkness. At 5'4" and 125lbs, this sweater is a perfect fit (with a comfortable amount of room) in a size small. I would give this five stars, but I do expect it will begin to pil with frequent wear and therefore the retail price is a tad excessive.
