I don’t know about you, but there are some comfortable wardrobe staples that I reach for more frequently than others — and they run the gamut in terms of the state they’re in. For example: on the one hand, there’s a pair of oversize, paint-stained sweatpants I’ve had in my possession since 2013 and newer, cuter silhouettes like the A New Day Crewneck Pullover Sweater ($25). I first came across it on TikTok. Countless shoppers on my feed had unveiled hauls from the retailer featuring the cozy silhouette (like this one), and you can bet that I was one of the many who were influenced to buy it. Ahead, I dive into my honest reviews on it to determine whether or not you should add it to your virtual shopping cart, too.
What I Like About This Sweater
I was drawn to this sweater for its chicness and, admittedly, the $25 price tag. The ribbed knit design stood out to me for the way it adds a cozy touch of texture, while pairing perfectly with any pair of bottoms, be it trousers, jeans, a miniskirt — you name it. I’m one of the *many* people right now who’s trying to be ultra selective about what pieces I add to my shopping cart, because I want them to remain in my wardrobe for years and be versatile enough that they’ll get several uses per season. This sweater certainly checks all of my boxes in that sense. Not to mention, it comes in 10 different colors and patterns (six monochrome hues and four fun designs).
What’s Worth Noting About Sweater
Unsure of how this sweater would fit, I ordered it in both small and medium, so you don’t have to. The size chart advised that sizes 4-6 opt for size small, but since I hover between sizes 6-8, I wasn’t sure what the fit would be like. The verdict is that medium was the right fit for me, and I recommend it for those who prefer a slightly oversize fit, especially those who frequently tuck their tops into their bottoms, which I do almost always. The photo of me in the cream sweater is the medium, green is the small. Despite loving the color, the small felt way too fitted on my arms and too short on my waist; so I’ll be returning it. All in all, I recommend sizing up for a casual, relaxed fit, especially since a lot of reviews touch on how it was more cropped than expected.
Who This Sweater Is Best For
This sweater is best for those like me who are looking for versatile tops that you can see yourself wearing for years. It’s a timeless silhouette that I look forward to pairing with everything from a classic pair of blue jeans to a more trendy trouser-and-loafer look.
