You know those investment pieces you just know you’ll have forever, no matter how many seasons go by? This oversized striped sweater by Totême is 100% one of those pieces for me. I loved this sweater so much I also bought the black version too. In fact, MYTHERESA is one of my favorite luxury retailers and somewhere I shop first when I’m on the hunt for something high-quality, high-fashion, and long-lasting.
For this post, I styled this amazing sweater with a pair of jeans & loafers. This is a great work outfit with jeans that is both sophisticated and casual, meaning you can wear it to meetings and for a post-work cocktail without skipping a beat. Plus, if there’s a ski trip in your near future, this top was basically made for après ski! Stripes? A high turtleneck? The oversized aspect? You’ll be the talk of the slopes, guaranteed. Don't worry though, you can easily transition this oversized sweater from winter to spring. Simply drape it over an essential white tee, jeans, sandals and you have yourself an on-trend spring-forward look!
My Honest Review
Comfort & Quality:
I’ve had this sweater for almost a year now, and have been very pleased with the quality and how it’s held up. I haven’t had any issues with piling and love that the knit is light enough to tuck into my jeans. While the content is a wool-blend, it is not itchy AT ALL. This sweater feels more like cotton than anything else. I always feel like wool has a bad rap, but when its blended with other fibers, its not as noticeable like a 100% wool sweater.
This style is designed for a looser, oversized fit. The sweater runs true to size; I’m wearing a size XS. I would be cautious to size up since the long sleeves are already slightly exaggerated.
I typically wear my Totême sweater a few times before dry cleaning. The label says hand washing is fine, but I like to dry clean to protect my investment and also save me some time! (If you do hand wash, be sure to lay flat to dry.) In between wears, I like to refresh the fabric with this Laundress spray.
