I had planned today’s post to be about this cute poncho sweater, but it unfortunately just became unavailable! I linked it above anyways in case it comes back online. I’m wearing a S/M and the fit is fine for a looser poncho sweater, however the sleeves are long for petites (I have them cuffed twice here). Here’s another poncho sweater option that comes in petite sizing and several neutral colors.
I also wanted to share some updates on sweaters that I purchased during last month’s sales – this J.Crew popcorn sweater (currently on sale) is a fun twist on a classic cable sweater with the addition of mini pom poms down the front. XXS is a slim fit on me throughout, and the sleeves hit at a good length even though it’s not petite sizing! The knit is thick and warm but I did find the wool to be a little itchy, so it’s something I’d have to wear with a layer underneath. Reading through the reviews, it seems like I may be in the minority with this concern. You can see a peek of the sweater on me in this blog post.
For men, the cotton thermal heavyweight sweater (also on sale) that I got Nick also turned out to be very nice quality and warm. This one would make a great gift – it comes in a few staple colors like cream, navy, and pine green and is very easy to pair over a collared shirt like this black watch plaid one (this was also a keeper!). Nick would suggest sizing down on the cotton thermal sweater for a slimmer fit.
