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.
When I wear their sweaters, I am always asked about them. They are those kind of pieces that just instantly look special on. Today I am giving this post a refresh to share a few of my newest La Ligne sweaters.
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.
Next up I can’t wait to get the new Solid Marin 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.
La Ligne Jack Sweater
If you already own the bestselling Marin and Marina Sweaters, you will love the Jack sweater. It is made from 100% lightweight and super soft Merino wool and has a super cool fit. It is not too long, not too short and has oversized sleeves that make it more fashion forward.
It comes in XS-XL and I sized up to the L.
La Ligne Lean Lines Sweater
This Lean Lines Sweater is a great year round essential striped sweater in 100% lightweight cashmere. I love the Black & Tan I bought as it looks great layered under black jackets or camel coats. It’s super soft, not overly bulky and comes with side slits that make it easy to tuck. It is also available in a Black & Cream version. I particularly like the extra long sleeves on this as I think it looks chic to have them sticking out underneath a coat or blazer.
This knit is available in XS – XL and I sized up to a L.

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. MatchesFashion also carries the brand.
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@example.com.

I just bought my first La Ligne sweater on sale on Net a Porter and definitely referenced this review for sizing help! ?
I appreciated the style and sizing information since I am new to the brand and purchased three sweaters. Fingers crossed I made the correct choice with size, color and size.
whoops! I meant style.
Look forward to hearing what you think!!
My purchases arrived and I am so glad I read your excellent review of different La Ligne sweaters.
1. La Ligne Marin wool blend sweater in cream with stripes in cream, burgundy, mint and navy. Size small is 23″ across. A little too oversized. but $395 for $175. I was sale shopping this week.
2. La Ligne fitted lean line 100% cashmere is my favorite. Pale blue with tan stripes $275 on sale at Nordstrom for $165. Measures across 19.25″.
3. La Ligne mini Toujour in large. Purchased per your size assessment. It measures 22.5″ across and is similar to the Marin small. Price: $295 on sale online with Nordstrom for $43.97. It only came in tan with very pale thin blue stripes.
Your blog was invaluable this week with trying a new brand. I hope I can pull off the oversize sweater look and plan on pairing with toothpick jeans since I am 5’1″.
I hope this is permitted to write about a different brand, but I wanted to try oversized sweaters and pattern this season, and purchased two fair isle sweaters in the same sweater recently worn in the roll neck/fair isle sweater worn by the newly titled Princess of Wales.
I like both brands. I think the La Ligne quality really stands out.
