Back towards the end of 2020, I did quite a lot of shopping. My birthday is in December and with Black Friday sales a week before my birthday, and the little birthday shopping that I do every year, I racked up some great purchases that I’ve been trying for the past couple months. One thing I really want to share here is a Jenni Kayne Everyday Sweater review. I love the aesthetic of the Jenni Kayne brand, but purchasing an expensive sweater online is intimidating if you’re unsure how it will fit.
In all my googling, I could not find a great review of the fit for a petite curvy person. Well, I decided to order two sizes and just find out for myself! I ordered a medium in the taupe and a large in the camel. Both of the colors are so beautiful, and they are colors that I wear often & will go along with the rest of the items in my closet.
For a little background info on me, I am curvy petite. I typically wear a m/l on top and an xl on the bottom.
JENNI KAYNE EVERYDAY SWEATER
This sweater is a boxy style with side slit hems. It is slightly on the cropped side, but I would not call it a cropped sweater. The sweater is made of a wool blend yarn, which contains wool, viscose, polyamide and 10% cashmere. It’s incredibly soft, even with just 10% cashmere. The quality is on par with high quality, indie-dyed yarn that I purchase to knit.
The price is $145, which is on the lower end of the Jenni Kayne sweaters. Some of the sweaters range on up to nearly $400, which is hard for me to fathom purchasing. You can typically find influencer coupon codes online at 15% or 20% off. I would like to say that if I purchased high quality yarn to knit myself a sweater in this same style, I absolutely would be spending $145 or more on supplies. The price is fair for the quality, in my opinion. I can not speak to the other Jenni Kayne sweaters, because I have not tried them.
JENNI KAYNE EVERYDAY SWEATER FIT COMPARISON
I took several comparison photos so you can see the medium vs. large sizes. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting to love both sizes. I ended up keeping both. As you can see, the medium is slightly more fitted in the width and sleeves. The large is roomier and the sleeves are longer. My main concern was the length. I was hoping the large would be a little bit longer. It is slightly longer, but not by much. This sweater isn’t technically a crop, but it’s definitely on the shorter side of the sweaters I own.
Both of these sweaters are too casual to wear to work. If there was a casual Friday, I would wear the taupe but even then the sleeves seem a little too long to be appropriate for the office. It would really just depend on if campus was open to students or not.
I have been wearing one or both of these sweaters at home, either working from home or on the weekend. They are just so comfortable, I love wearing them! The sleeves are a little too baggy to feel comfortable cooking in, so I definitely scrunch them up when I’m working in the kitchen.
One other point I would like to touch on is the quality of the fabric. Soft yarn has the tendency to pill, so you definitely want either a sweater shaver or Gleener to de-pill every once in a while. In fact, all of my soft, high-quality yarn pills. Personaly, I have a Gleener to use on all of my sweaters, whether they were purchased or knit.
I really hope this was Jenni Kayne Everyday Sweater review was helpful for any curvy petites out there who are wondering about the sizing! My Jenni Kayne sweaters have been in heavy rotation since I purchased them, and I would definitely purchase more.
Let me know if you have any questions!
