In the age of social media and influencers, I know it can be easy to get caught up in brands that get a lot of hype. I try to always do my own research for brands I’m hearing a lot about – especially when they come with steep price tags – so that I can determine whether or not I think they’re worth the spend.
In 2020 I bought my first pieces from Jenni Kayne – the California cool brand that’s all above classic and relaxed yet polished Cali vibes. They make both home goods and clothing and today’s post is all about sharing more about the brand’s clothing items. They offer a wide variety of styles and I’m sharing which pieces I own and can recommend.
Jenni Kayne bills themselves as a California lifestyle brand that inspires women to live well every day. When it comes to their clothing they are focused on wardrobe essentials which is something I can personally relate to as I truly believe in having a closet full of quality pieces that make you feel good to wear them. They want their pieces to be staples that don’t sacrificing style or comfort.
With a focus on inviting neutrals (something that initially drew me to the brand given my love of a neutral wardrobe!), quality construction, and attention to detail, the pieces are intended to stand the test of time. The brand’s clothing is all about simplicity, consistency and building a personal uniform that lasts season after season so you won’t be shopping Jenni Kayne for super trendy items or things that you’ll only wear a few times.
Jenni Kayne Apparel Review
The Jenni Kayne sweaters make up my very favorite apparel from the brand. They’re investment pieces in beautiful neutrals that you’ll reach for time and time again.
This is such a good year-round sweater. It’s lightweight but still cozy and features edge detailing on the bottom hem and sleeves. The side slits add visual interest and make this a great casual sweater.
It comes in seven neutral color options and sizes XS through 3X. I am wearing Ivory in a M.
I love how versatile this sweater is. And man is it soft. After buying it I found myself reaching for it again and again. And I’ve had no issue with pilling whatsoever on it (a true sign of the quality of their 100% cashmere) and why I feel it is worth its price tag. It has a classic crewneck silhouette and I love the subtly texture to it. It feels extremely luxurious every time I slip it on.
Available in eight beautiful neutrals. I now own it in both the Ivory and the Oatmeal colors. It’s my favorite piece that I’ve gotten from Jenni Kayne to date. I wear a size M and sizes available are XS through 3X.
Featuring the same textured detail and classic crewneck silhouette as the cashmere fisherman sweater, this is a cotton version of the fisherman in a thick, lovely quality weight.
Available in six beautiful neutrals – I’m wearing the Ivory in a size M. It runs slightly small so if you’d prefer a more oversized fit, I’d size up. Available in sizes XS through 3X.
Seen styled with this skirt in a size M.
Slouchy, comfy, cozy perfection. Both the body and the hood are slightly oversized making this a 100% cashmere sweater you’ll want to live in.
I have the shade Oatmeal in a M.
I fell in love with the fabric of these pajamas when I saw them in the store. They’re a really lightweight yet luxurious feeling cotton. They feel cozy yet cool to the touch so if you’re a hot sleeper like me, you’ll love them.
If you prefer to sleep in shorts, they have a shorts version, too. The Playa pajamas are available in Ivory and Blush in sizes XS-XXL.
Does Jenni Kayne fit true to size?
I have found the brand to fit true to size – taking a Medium in each sweater I own. I would say the exception is items that are billed as oversized. You’re going to want to size down in things like their popular oversized cocoon cardigan.
If you’re unsure on sizing still, be sure to check out the Jenni Kayne Size Guide.
How do I care for my Jenni Kayne cashmere?
I either dry clean my Jenni Kayne cashmere sweaters or I’ll use the Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo and let the pieces air dry (read: do not tumble dry!)
After repeated wear, the sweaters will pill a bit. But it is easily remedied by using my favorite fabric shaver that leaves the sweaters looking brand new.

The brand offers free domestic shipping and returns as well as payment installment options. They also have styling services. Jenni Kayne has a blog called Rip & Tan if you’re looking for more inspiration on how to live a stylish life.
If you’d prefer to try the apparel on in person, you can see if one of the brand’s stores is near you.
I definitely get the hype of the quality and style of the Jenni Kayne apparel now and they certainly have created a lasting customer in me.
