LOFT Striped Textured Tunic Sweater, size S regular
Update 1/16: I tried on this striped sweater today because I wanted to get a sense of how it fits. Note that this is a thinner sweater but it’s not see through. Size S regular runs slightly longer on me (refer to this boomerang clip here) than I would prefer even for a tunic length top. If you’re petite like me (I’m 5’2 1/4″) I would recommend getting this sweater in petites for a shorter overall length. Their True Fit recommendation for me in this sweater is XSP but I would probably prefer this sweater in size SP for a more relaxed fit and drape across my hips and backside.
LOFT Puff Sleeve Swing Top, size XS regular
I love the drape of the swing top and the material they used is not tissue thin which I like. The gathered details on the shoulders add just the right amount of interest. I found that it fits true to size to slightly large. Update 1/16: I tried on size XS regular tonight in the navy color (see it on me here) and for some reason it felt like it fit more loose and longer than I remembered when I tried on the red color last week. As a revised review, I would need this in my usual size XXS regular or XSP for the best fit and slightly shorter overall length.
I love the contrast of the print on the flounce of this sweater and I found that it fits true to size. I tried on size XS petite last week but I ended up getting size XS regular yesterday (c/o LOFT, refer to this blog post to read about my recent takeover on LOFT’s Instagram) for a slightly longer overall length.
LOFT Striped Ruffle Bib Shirt, size XS regular
This adorable bib shirt caught my eye when I saw it listed under the new arrivals online. It is slightly sheer and blousy. I’d say that it runs about one size bigger. I tried on size XS regular last week and to be honest I wasn’t completely sold on it but I fell in love when I saw it paired with the grey mixed rib cardigan yesterday. I ordered size XXS regular for a better fit. Update 1/20: Size XXS regular was still too long and big on me so I exchanged it for size XSP.
LOFT Back Pleat Peacoat, size XS regular
A good peacoat is hard to find and I love the details and construction of this coat. The lapel is not overpowering and the single back pleat adds just the right amount of interest in the back. Note that this is a light jacket that’s perfect for spring and early fall. I’d say that it fits true to size but the sleeves are slightly long on me. I would probably need it in size XXS regular for a better fit. It’s available in black and turquoise but I wish it was offered in a neutral colorway. If you don’t like the white buttons on the black color you can always switch them out.
Stripeout Split Neck Blouse, size XXSP
The stripes on this split neck blouse make quite the statement. This blouse is sheer so a layering cami is required. I found that it runs true to size. I made the error of trying on size XXSP above which is pulling at my chest so size XSP would be the correct size and it’s also my usual size at LOFT. I prefer more neutral prints and patterns myself so I passed on this blouse.
LOFT Striped Tab Sleeve Blouse, size XSP
I tried on this striped tab sleeve blouse because I wanted the solid white version but I couldn’t find it in store to try on. I’d say that it fits true to size and it’s a great basic layering blouse under cardigans and jackets.
Lou & Grey Ribside Sweater, size XS regular
I fell in love with this grey sweater recommended by Su. It was not on sale when I tried it on last week but I snagged it yesterday in store (c/o LOFT). I found that it runs true to size and I love the marled texture and the way it drapes.
Lou & Grey Snapup Hoodie Sweater, size XS regular
I saw this hoodie featured on Lou & Grey’s instagram and I’m happy to report that it is really cute on. I’d say this fits true to size to a little small especially for Lou & Grey which tends to run one size bigger than normal LOFT clothes/styles. Be very careful when you tug on the snap buttons because of the looser knit material.
Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Pocket Top, size XS regular
I like and would recommend this easy to wear pocket tee shirt and it runs true to size and is available in black, pink (love) and bright sea heather which looks turquoise to me in the online stock image. It drapes well and I like the longer overall length which covers my front and back side. The signaturesoft material also washes well from my experience.
LOFT V-Neck Swing Sweater Dress, size XSP
Lastly, I got this sweater dress after seeing it on Danielle on her last day at the Prudential Center LOFT. She always looks so adorable in everything she wears and that’s why it’s more fun to go in store to get ideas of how things look on their stylish associates and dress forms. This dress was in my size and on final sale for $14.88.
P.S. I was able to see the new plaid tab sleeve peplum blouse in store and it didn’t look or feel like polyester. When I checked the care tag I confirmed that it is 100% rayon so the online description and care instructions are wrong. I’d be curious to know if it fares well in the wash.
