One of the best brands I’ve discovered in the past few years is La Ligne. It’s a casually cool, effortlessly chic brand started by former Vogue editors Valerie Macaulay and Meredith Melling, and Molly Howard, rag & bone’s former head of business development.
La Ligne Sweaters Review
The La Ligne founders wanted to start a brand that was timeless and classic, wearable and yet has a je ne sais quoi element about it. They started with the iconic stripe and have built out the line to include everyday essentials as well as statement making dresses and other pieces.
In the words of the founders, “If you can’t eat, dance, sleep and drink in it, we won’t make it. And while some clothes stay and some go, these are the ones that stick around.”
The brand has grown a cult following and has been seen on loads of celebrities and tastemakers – everyone from Olivia Wilde to Chris Rock and Laura Brown.
I started my La Ligne collection with their iconic striped knitwear and have grown a collection of sweaters from the brand now given how much I wear each. They are true wardrobe staples and while this brand is certainly an investment – the pieces are beautifully crafted and made to last and never go out of style.
I have found the sizing to be a bit all over the place so today I am breaking down the styles I own and sharing what size I wear. For reference, I am typically a 6/M in most clothing brands. The brand offers loads of sweater styles to choose from in addition to those I am reviewing below as well so their entire knitwear collection is worth perusing.
I also like that they do weekly drops and often show inspiration of how to style their pieces when they announce the drops via email. Definitely worth signing up for their newsletters.
La Ligne Marin Sweater
Last year I fell in love with the small brand La Ligne who makes delicious cashmere. They are $$$ but given how much I live in my collection of cashmere sweaters and how beautifully these are made, they’ve been worth it.
The most plush, luxurious sweater with a perfectly slouchy oversized yet tailored fit – the La Ligne Marin Sweater is a cashmere dream. Warm enough for the winter but also magically great for summer nights, too.
I love the wide variety of colors it comes in (as well as a color-blocked version) and I now own the Cream/Ivory Stripe and the Navy/Ivory Sweater.
I own this sweater in both a Small (in Navy) and a Medium (in Cream) as it runs oversized.
La Ligne Mini Marin Sweater
The Mini Marin is the cropped, slightly shruken version of their Marin Sweater. I like to pair it with high waisted pants or denim but it also goes well with midi skirts thanks to its cropped fit. It’s made from a chunky 7-ply knit made of 30% cashmere and 70% wool.
I have this in two colors as well – Black/Cream and Navy/White. I wear it in a size Medium but recommend sizing up if you like a roomier fit. Comes in loads of fun stripe color combos and sizes XS-XL.
I also love the look of this sweater as a cardigan: the Mini Marin Cardigan.
La Ligne Toujours Sweater
Named because you’ll want to wear it tous les jours. (‘all the days’ in French), this Toujours Sweater is a great ribbed cashmere sweater with a loose crewneck and slouchy yet put together silhouette.
It’s 100% cashmere and has a chunky gauge rib made of five ply cashmere. It’s got a drop shoulder and hits below the hip making it a cozy sweater to throw on and be surrounded in super plush cashmere. I like to style mine with jeans or my favorite faux leather leggings.
It comes in a variety of cool colors (10+!) and I would recommend sizing down. I’m wearing a size Small in the Ivory above. Available in sizes XS-XL.
La Ligne Mini Tourjours Striped Sweater
A thinner, more cropped version of the Toujours sweater, the Mini Toujours is also a ribbed knit made of 100% cashmere. It’s a medium weight and definitely less plush/thick than the original Toujours making it great for every day and has a drop shoulder making it casually cool. It hits at the hip so I’d size up if you’d like a more oversized fit.
I really like this one for layering under coats.
This style also comes in solid colors. Available in sizes XS-XL. I wear a L.

As for care of the sweaters – La Ligne does recommend hand washing or dry cleaning their sweaters. I like to use The Laundress Cashmere Shampoo.
While I’ve always shopped La Ligne online, you can also find them at a few of their own stores, too. I’ve also shopped their pieces at Net a Porter and Nordstrom as well and you’ll find the line at select Nordstrom stores if you prefer to shop in person.
And if you’re lucky – sometimes you’ll luck out finding some marked down styles at Nordstrom Rack!
If you’re curious about sizing or styling further, too – you can email any questions to the La Ligne Styliste at [email protected]
