Lightweight Rivington Cardigan Sweater

Lightweight Rivington Cardigan Sweater is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I were stranded on an island... This would be the piece I would want with me. I absolutely love this sweater. I wore it as my jacket most days in the Spring, and even now that the weather is warm I keep it handy for air conditioned places. The sweater is light weight and warm at the same time. I had to size down for a truly flattering g fit. This sleek look elevates everything from a simple jeans and tshirt to something polished and chic. My favorite way to wear it is with a cute striped short sleeve tee, cuffed capri jeans and cute flat sandals. Perfection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite staple This sweater is one that I know I will be reaching for throughout the year. It is a beautiful neutral color that I can dress up for work or dress down in my favorite jeans. Long enough to cover my bum but fitted enough to give any outfit that I have a polished look! I also love how the material is not too thick or thin and the sweater is soooo soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect layering piece, excellent quality! Perfect layering piece for those not too cold days. Neutral color accents and compliments outfits very well. Great overall added value to any wardrobe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good staple piece Really nice cardigan, I wear it all the time. It is the sliiightest bit itchy, but I'm the kind of person who can't stand itchy clothing and this isn't a huge deal for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish, warm, pilled fast I do absolutely love this cardigan - wear it over a dress, skinny jeans and a tucked in cami, over a blouse for work - basically at least 3-4 days a week. That said, I was surprised how quickly the wrists stretched out in the sleeves and how quickly it pilled - maybe after two weeks of wear? I still recommend it as a nice basic as we transition into spring. For reference I'm about 5'6" and 120ish and got the xs - it hits right around my knees and is roomy enough for layering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice buttttt.... I love this cardigan. It’s been my go to sweater since purchasing. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because I had to send the first one I bought back. Within a week it had so many lint balls. It looked like I had the sweater for years. Fortunately customer service was more then nice and sent me a new one right away. I love and get many compliments!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I’ve had this sweater for just over a week, it’s the perfect weight for spring weather. The length is perfect for me, love the pockets (they are sewn in to the sweater rather than hanging loose) and color is great with my wardrobe. My only quibble is the fabric, I’m already seeing the sleeves pile so I’m guessing I’ll only get one season with it. I’m 5’7”, 130 and Small fits perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love! Except.... I really have loved this sweater. So cute to layer with and goes with so many outfits. But so sad that it pilled so fast. Makes me think twice about purchasing sweaters in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pills so much I love my Madewell sweater coats & Kent cardigans, and their inevitable pilling never bothered me. The worst of it can usually be picked off. However...after wearing this for a few short hours, I'm so sad about the pilling on this sweater. The spot where my purse hit my side was trashed. I thought this would be a wonderful closet staple, but unfortunately I don't think it'll last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pills in an instant. Not worth the price. I have to comb this sweater more than my own hair. I wore it once and it pills like crazy. I love the color and it would go with everything if I was even able to wear it. If I could go back in time, I'd save my money.
