J. Crew Rimini Cardigan

I have a love-hate relationship with this cardigan.... I love the love and style, and I hate that I love it so much because I don't think it's very flattering - especially in this picture!

I'm wearing size Small here.  The XS worked everywhere but the arms... which were tight.  Why are the arms so tight in JC sweaters these days?

I feel like this is one of those items that looks better in person than in the picture!  I considered getting this in the black color instead, but I just fell in love with this Nutmeg color when I tried it on, I can't imagine any other color - although I love the Cobblestone color, too!

Bottom Line:  Fits TTS, but small in the arms.  Length is good for me - even as a long waisted gal.  I'd try to wait for a sale on this one, though.  I'm only keeping it all full price because I used my rewards card to purchase it!  It's right on point with the current moto-style!


  1. I am in fact considering this sweater in the final sale, and am hemming and hawing between a large and extra large. Since you seem to go between a xs and s and went with a small would you recommend and extra large?

  2. So sorry for the delay in response! YES! I would say an XL - esp b/c of the tightness of the arms!
