Spring is OFFICIALLY here so that means I don’t need to apologize for posting about spring pieces now. And of course, I have to mention Sézane because their spring pieces are sooooo cute. I picked up a few new items to review but I’m also sharing some pieces I picked up earlier that are still great for spring.
Sézane Spring Try-On
My Measurements: 33-27-37. 5’8″, 120lbs
I was drawn to the Agathe Blouse because of the print. It’s a super cute floral print on against a navy background. But this blouse also has other super cute details – like gathered “flounces” on the front, back, collar, and cuffs, and embroidery details. It’s definitely got all the prairie-style details going on. It’s 100% cotton and the fabric is comfortable and not too stiff. I’m wearing the size small and I’d say it runs true to size. I definitely wouldn’t size down though.
The Paulie Sweater was another piece where I was drawn to the gorgeous floral print. This sweater just screams “spring” to me! It’s made from a blend of kid mohair, wool, and synthetic fibers. It is a soft a fuzzy knit that’s not too thick. it’s a similar weight to the Gaspard knits, however, it is slightly more itchy (I’m assuming due to the wool).
I originally went with my usual size small but it was very large in the body. On Sézane’s website it does say for an oversized fit, take your usual size. I could have made the size small work but I decided to exchange it for an XS. And I do prefer how the XS fits – it feels more like a typical size small.
Sézane just released the Amaya Jumper which looks the same as the Paulie sweater but in a different print. I LOVE this blue peony print too and I’m kind of tempted to get this one as well. Someone stop me!!
I’d been debating weather or not to try the Anil Jumper for awhile. I loved the coffee brown shade but I wasn’t sure if the fabric looked comfortable. I was afraid it would be too stiff. But I needed to add a piece to my order so I could get free shipping so I decided to try the Anil top out. And I’m happy to say that I love it! The fabric turned out to be a stretchy knit and not stiff at all so it’s very comfortable. The only issue with this top is that it has a wider square neckline which means I can only wear my balconette bras with it.
I’m wearing the size small and it’s true to size if you want it to be a body hugging fit (which I think it’s supposed to be). If you want a slightly looser fit or if you are very busty I would probably size up. And if you are between sizes I would take the larger size. (I got this piece later so it’s not in my YouTube video). This top also comes in multiple colors!
I’ve had my eye on the Francky Trousers for awhile but just wasn’t sure of my size. I finally took a chance and ordered a size 4 and they are perfect! I was really drawn to the buckle waist detail because I figured it would allow me to adjust the size if I lose or gain weight. It really is an interesting feature of these pants. I love that I can tighten them to the perfect fit. The fabric is a thicker denim like material, although they aren’t too stiff. I think it’s a great sturdy material.
The Francky Trousers are high waist with a loose fit through the hip and legs. They taper slightly at the bottom. I think these are the perfect length for me (I’m 5’8″). These pants also come in a variety of colors and fabrics (including leather and a linen blend). I really am tempted to get them in another color!
I featured the Colette Marinière top in my last try-on post but it’s a great spring piece as well so I thought I’d mention it again. Sézane also released it in a new red stripe recently (which is fully in stock) so now there are three colors to choose from. I like this top because it’s a thicker cotton. Most of the striped tees I have are thin and I feel like they wear out quickly. Since the fabric is thicker I think it looks more polished. I also love the button detail on the shoulder. There is a similar top available called the Noan Marinière with buttons down the side, if you prefer that. I just decided to go with the Colette style because it’s easier to tuck in and I love to wear it with high waisted pants.
I’m wearing the size small and it’s perfect. I wouldn’t size down – especially because I might want to layer a white button down underneath sometimes.
I’m also mentioning the Léontine Jumper again because I think it’s a great transition piece. It has that nautical vibe (which is very “spring” to me) but it’s a little thicker than the Colette. It’s a 100% cotton knit so I feel like it’s the perfect light sweater to wear on cooler spring days. This jumper comes in other colors as well.
I’m wearing the size small but it’s definitely on the larger size. I probably could have sized down to an XS.
