It warmed up unexpectedly yesterday after three days of misery here in the Northeast. I had bundled up in anticipation of harsh winter conditions but by lunch I was out and about without a jacket.

I thought I would do a quick review of the AE Long Cable Sweaters that I purchased two weeks ago. I ordered about 10 colors in all and returned about four of them (due to color difference and manufacturing defects, small holes specifically).
What I like about this particular sweater is that it’s logo-less (eagle logos stop being age appropriate for me about 10 years ago) and the price is very reasonable (I got them for less than $10 each). The XXS fits snugly but since I don’t normally wear a tank top underneath sweaters and plan to wear the sweater like a fitted top, I don’t mind the fit.
The sweaters are rather thin and with lighter colors a nude color bra is necessary (unless the intention is to make your bra color known). The sweaters also vary quite a bit in fit across colors. Of the 10 sweaters that I got, the green sweater shown here is perhaps the tightest fitting (along with the red and the black).
The length of the top and the sleeves were a bit long for a 5’2 person but nothing egregious.
In all, I think the beautiful colors are what sold me on the sweaters. I also don’t own very many sweaters in a similar style so these ended up being keepers for me.
See the sweater on my beautiful blog friend Pauline.
