My pals at Dudley Stephens have a big drop of their stripe collection today at 10am EST! I’m so happy to be back in my favorite fleeces post-pregnancy and the stripes are (obviously) right up my alley. My personal favorite stripe colorway is the navy and white but I let Amalia choose what we would wear for this post and, not surprisingly, she chose the hot pink which is also super fun.
On my list is the natural blush Park Slope to pair with white jeans or denim shorts, the navy and white Cobble Hill to wear with leggings for daycare drop-off, and a Prospect Pullover for dog walks this fall.
I’m sharing some info from my Dudley Stephens FAQ post because every time I talk about the brand, I get these questions:
PARK SLOPE OR COBBLE HILL?
VELLO OR TERRY FLEECE?
I prefer the terry fleece because it’s a little thinner and I run warm. But the vello fleece is softer and cozier so it depends what you’re looking for.
WHAT IS DUDLEY STEPHENS SIZING LIKE?
I personally wear an XS in the Cobble Hill style (pictured above) because I like the longer part to be more fitted (although it makes the sleeves a bit tight) and an S in Park Slope. The DS team actually made a whole fit guide (featuring yours truly!) to answer all of your fit questions. I also find that the vello fleece runs a little smaller than the terry just because it’s thicker.
WHAT DUDLEY STEPHENS PRODUCTS DO YOU LIKE BESIDES THE TWO OGS?
I love the Somerset sweatshirt (pictured in this post) for over PJs or to throw on over a tee when I get chilly. It fits a little looser, like a sweatshirt. The Prospect Pullover is another favorite of mine for after the gym.
HOW IS DUDLEY STEPHENS SUSTAINABLE?
They make their fleece out of recycled bottles. The last time I checked, they had recycled over 1,000,000 plastic bottles to make their product.
