What Made Me Want to Review the Knit Separates and Oversize Jumper?

When you are a regular reader, you know that Alaska seems to have only two seasons: Winter and construction/tourist season. When the calendar says Beginning of Spring, temperatures are still below freezing. In all climate regions with cold or extremely cold winters, spring can have below freezing temperatures early in the mornings. And even in warm climate regions, clear summer evenings can be chilly. Thus, I picked the Stone Cable Knit Midi Skirt Co-ord – Bess, which looked like a great spring wardrobe update for the office. We all know ACs have trouble to getting the office temperatures right when spring weather plays JoJo with the outside temperatures. I picked the Stone Oversized Split Side Knitted Jumper – Lore as a trendy, cheap weekend wardrobe update for the cool Alaska summer days.

Quality, Sizing, Comfort, Feeling of the Knitwear, …

The Stone Cable Knit Midi Skirt Co-ord – Bess costs $41.90 (£35.61) after an EXTRA 15% OFF with code: MAR15. The high-waisted skirt is nipped in towards the waist for a sleek appearance. I ordered it in size S (UK 8) and it’s a great fit. The cable design gives the illusion of height. The yarn feels soft and the cut is very comfy. The material is not wool, i.e. no fear of allergy for me. The piece’s quality looks more expensive than the price tag suggests. When you love it, hurry up to get it. There are only a few left in the various sizes.

The midi skirt is tailored like a pencil skirt, but is very comfortable. The cropped top is flowy in a modern length. The neutral color gives the look a posh vibe.

 

The stone oversized split side knitted jumper is available in sizes S to XL for $20.95 (£17.81) after EXTRA 15% OFF With Code: MAR15 at checkout. It is the softest piece I ever had in my closet! ♥ It is also available in black and gray.

Femme Luxe Knitwear Keeps You Warm on Chilly Spring Days/Summer Evenings

Personally, I hoped that these garments could serve as pieces for winter-to-spring transition looks for Interior Alaska. Indeed, I felt in thermal comfort when we took the photos outside despite the temperatures were below freezing. Thus, the attire fulfilled my expectation. For those of you, not living in high latitudes, it means the products can keep you comfy on those chilly spring days and in the clear sky summer evenings when sitting on the deck with friends after a BBQ.

Verdict: The knitwear solves my problem to stay warm in style on chilly spring days.

What I like/dislike

Both pieces are in neutral colors. This fact makes them easy to style for work and play. Just swap the color of the accessories. Think as red floral scarf, red pointy toe pumps and multiple pearl necklaces. Green, pink, brown and even black are other great options. The separates also look great with chunky sandals.

The jumper is full on the oversized everything trend. The vertical right-left knit-pattern gives the illusion of a slim look. Thumbs up for this detail! It looks great with a pair of skinny jeans, leggings, sleek dress or leather pants. The long side slits give a blink on the thighs.

The top is in the trendy 1990s cropped style, which is a perfect style for petites like me. It’s also great to balance a long torso.

Sexy, without trying too hard.

The knit of the oversized pullover is very loose. You can pull a thread very easily. Unlike for a close knit like the separates, where you could just turn the thread invisibly inside, pulling a thread leads to a distressed look (another big trend right now).

Sure, not everyone’s cup of tea.

The brand has a spring sale right now with up to 80% off and 15% on most pieces with promo code MAR15 at checkout. They also offer free shipping within the United Kingdom on orders over £25. There is even a student discount of 20%!

I would have loved it if there had been such discounts when I was in college!

Note that the descriptions called the color of both products stone. However, when you hold them side-by-side they have different hues.

Who Would Love the Separates and Sweater?

When you love the distressed sweater trend and want an oversized sweater that doesn’t let you look heavy, it is a cheap Must-have. This top will get a unique look, unlike those expensive pieces from brand names.  It’s also for you when you like the distressed trend and want to cover your hips, bum or midlife belly.

When the AC at your office has difficulty adjusting to the often temperature swings of spring, the separates are a chic spring update for those days you expect the AC to overdo. These are the chilly days, right after a day that felt like spring arrived. The neutral color also permits wearing them in fall and on warmer winter days. Perfect for the stylish professional on a fashion budget.

It’s also great for everyone who meanwhile adapted to work in comfy clothes, and now has to go back to the office. It looks office appropriate when styled with dress shoes, diamond studs, scarf and/or pearls in a business casual style or semi-conservative work place.

Verdict: I would recommend the knit separates to my friends who look for comfy work appropriate separates. I would recommend the sweater to my friends who look for a comfy, casual weekend piece that gets its unique distressed look while living in it.

In a Nutshell
