While I was prepping for my review of Naadam’s sustainably-made cashmere…I came across this top that is best described as a cashmere bra top. Obviously it came with matching, awkwardly cropped cashmere joggers. And while this is not the sort of set I typically go for…I threw it in my cart because, at this point in 2020 I could use a good laugh.
Anyway, imagine my surprise when I found that the set looked like this:
NAADAM’s Cashmere Bra Makes This Lounge Set Kinda Sexy…
So cute, right?? And it’s never too hot and has turned out to be something I throw on for a Friday or Saturday night in. It feels a little fancy, even, almost…sexy?
But once in a while, I do want something to throw on top. And if you, like me, were tempted to buy the matching cardigan…well…
I did not love this piece. It might be my height (5’3″) buuuuuut….
Dear god. Stop buttoning. Stop it.
What about open? Does open work?
Um. It’s…fine. Fine.
But when I swapped out the matching cardigan for a chunkier one that hit at the waist….
top (size m) | bottoms (s) | my old free people cardigan (xs)
There we go. Much better.
I think any short or shorter cardigan would work (or, heck, a belted cardigan). Or maybe just being a tall & gorgeous 20-something would work great, too. Take your pick.
Anyway, cardigan excluded, this set is a really fun one to wear. It’s been a pleasant surprise, and, I suspect will be on major sale for Black Friday. (You can check to see if Naadam is having a sale, here.)
You didn’t by chance try out the Striped Crewneck Sweater or Texture Crewneck? I’m curious about fit. Thanks
Ahhh…I didn’t! But it looks like the striped crewneck runs smaller than the other sweaters I tried on – it’s pretty fitted.
I like the longer cardigan! I think it’s more on trend and less cute than the shorter one. I like it open rather than closed, and think it’d look super cute with some sneakers. Either way, great set and you look adorable.
I agree with Samantha…I like the longer cardigan on you. What size did you order in the cardigan?
