I’ve been really into Statement Sweaters For Spring lately as you know from my Free People purchases, which is a strange thing for this tee shirt and jeans wearing girl. Statement sweaters have been really catching my eye and unfortunately, the #1 statement sweater that I’ve been lusting after is completely out of reach price wise. I’ve been lusting hard after this Bella Freud jumper but sweaters are just not investment pieces for me so I can’t bear to spend that kind of money, especially on something I can’t try on first. Enter these beautiful options from Loft. I’ve never shopped Loft before except a few weeks ago I had to hunt for a particular style of dress to wear to a wedding (post to come on that!), and I found beautiful options at Loft for insane markdowns. I was amazed at the gorgeous prints they have out lately! I found a dress that I loved, and it was $34! Anyways, I was hooked and came back to Loft this week and noticed they had all new Spring merch.
This ‘Love’ sweater was the first thing to catch my eye. I’ve seen similar ideas elsewhere but either couldn’t figure out the retailer that sold the sweaters, or they just didn’t live up to expectations in person. This one is a really beautiful pink that isn’t bubblegum pink, and it’s a very soft cotton knit. It’s such a lovely soft knit that isn’t hot or overly warm. I love the cropped sleeve detail. The price for this sweater is a steal at $59.50, but I just realized it’s on sale for 40% off online right now as are all the other sweaters in this post. I purchased it in store at full price but I’m actually going to return these to take advantage of this sale price. This is a size L on me and it fits just right. long enough to cover my hips, and not boxy.
Another sweater statement I’ve had a thing for is bright yellow knits. I saw a woman the other day wearing the most intense yellow sweater and I was so in love with it. It wasn’t a spring yellow though. Something about it was just a touch cool and so nice with her skin tone which was so similar to mine. Yellow is a hard color to pull off and you have to get exactly the right tone. I could tell immediately that this was the right yellow for me. I have cool skin tone but I also have a lot of redness on my skin so yellows are especially tricky and I need one that has a slightly cool undertone. At Loft I saw this sweater and realized it was the same yellow, which must be the color of the season. It’s not the same sweater she was wearing (hers was a fuzzier knit) but it’s the same tone of yellow.
This is a size L and I purchased it in this size but I actually think I need it in a medium. It’s nice and oversized but I think there is too much material in the arms and chest area.
It also comes in this pretty pink which we’ve been seeing everywhere. I liked it a lot too and I think it looks nice on as well but I was attached to the yellow.
I tried this one on as an afterthought not thinking much of it on the hangar, but this one is actually my very favorite. I love the whipstitch detailing on it. I love whipstitch the same way I’m loving splatter paint prints lately. I love a black and white stripe, I love the feminine sleeve detailing and I love the fit. It’s also a cotton knit and very breathable, soft and not stuffy and hot. This is a size L and I’m quite happy with the fit of it. I will be wearing this sweater a ton – as much as my Free People Sweater.
What do you guys think? Do you shop at Loft? I’m excited to find a new store I love along with my usual Aritzia/Nordstrom/Zara/Club Monaco/Lululemon stops in the mall.
Check these sweaters out here and my favorite that jeans are still on sale!
