Last month, I splurged on a few knitwear pieces from Sezane (see my YouTube video linked below) and the effortless French aesthetic has got me hook, line and sinker. My favourite knit is one of the very first pieces that I picked up from the brand – the Leontine knit – it’s no surprise that it’s all over Instagram. It’s that good.
The French-based label started out as a vintage clothing retailer but pivoted to classic wardrobe staples and is now regarded as one of the biggest French fashion labels. Think Breton-inspired striped knits, elevated knitwear, 60s inspired denim and all the wardrobe basics that you need to channel the French girl aesthetic.
So I thought I’d share the pieces that are on my radar and the items that I’d love to add to my wardrobe – budget permitting!

Gaspard Knit in Ecru/Gold
The Gaspard Knit is one of Sezane’s signature knits that can be worn in multiple ways. The sizing runs large in this one so I would recommend that you size down. I’m typically an Australian size 8 (UK 8 / US 2-4) and the XXS in this knit is still quite relaxed on me. This style comes in a heap of colours – I love the subtle stripe pattern that is part of the new season.
Jordanna Blouse in Ecru
Cute ruffles, playful puffy sleeves and texture – this blouse has all the makings of a winner. I generally stick to a neutral colour palette so I look to different textures to add some interest to my outfit.
Dorotha Dress in Sunflowers
Spring looks like it’s sprung with this dress – I love the sunflower print on this cute midi dress. The style is very similar to my Reformation Dress (new season version here) which is probably why I’m drawn to it. The earthy neutral tones means this will work year-round.
Leontine Knit in Navy
I know what you’re thinking… but what can I say?! I’m a creature of habit. The Leontine knit is one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe and you can’t be surprised that I’m drawn to the navy version of this one now, can you?!
Alba Jumper in Navy/Neutrals
There’s a lot to love about this one – the classic stripes, the boat neck – there’s no denying that this organic cotton jumper is a classic wardrobe staple. Considering how weighty their organic tops are (I have the Colette Mariniere and it is a heavyweight cotton that is so durable), I imagine the jumper version would be a weightier version that would last and last.
Alban Jumper in Polka Dot
I’m in love with the low back of this knit. From the front, it looks like a regular boat neck style knit. Granted it’s not the most practical piece (and warrants a sticky bra), but it’s the perfect candidate for a winter event, tucked into a high waisted skirt or jeans and paired with some festive heels (I have these in mind!).
Achille Jumper in Denim
This is very similar to the Mia Jumper that I picked up in my latest knitwear haul but with more subtle sleeves and a less fuzzier texture. The vintage blue denim hue is stunning.
Tammie Skirt in Vintage Blue Prairie
And sticking with the vintage blue theme, how pretty is this flowy midi skirt? It’s a high-waisted tiered style with playful slits on the side – I think this skirt would work well with any of the knits and tops that I’ve featured in this post because of the muted print. I’m keen to give this one a go to see how the length would work on my petite frame.
This skirt is giving off some strong 60s vibes and it’s the details that are doing it for me – the cute patch pockets, the shell buttons. The length is playful and it isn’t too short (particularly if you err on the conservative side like me!).
You can’t go wrong with a broderie shirt dress. This beauty is reminiscent of the shirt dresses that I used to own from Lover the Label in their heyday and quite similar to a lot of Zimmermann dresses that are released each year (…and retail for 5 times the price). This dress is lined in all the right places and the sleeves are slightly ballooned to play around with proportion.
So what do you think of my Sezane Spring 2022 picks?! Have you got any of these pieces on your radar?
As always, thanks for stopping by!
P.S. See my first Sezane try-on here and my second try-on of their cult wardrobe favourites here.
Adore all these pieces! We’re the same size so I hope you snap up the skirt to give it a test run for all us shorties!
Love this! I have the Gaspard in ecru/gold and love it.
Agree that it is boxy, so I tend to wear it back-to-front with the buttons creating a cute detail at the back.
I too am “fun size” – ie. 5’2” 🙂 so thank you for your posts and keep them coming!
I think the Gaspard looks better worn back to front because of the boat neckline it creates. and yay! a fellow fun-sized pal! thanks for stopping by! xx
