There’s always a time when you just can’t get rid of a brand. In recent years, that brand is Ganni. With Ditte Reffstrup as creative director and founded by Nicolaj Reffstrup, it was around 2018 when an array of color-blocked seersucker dresses, cowboy boots and sweaters flooded our feed. Hence, creating what the Scandinavian label describes as #GanniGirls (aka people who know their values and personal style who “keep an eye on the prize”).
We at the Cut Shop team have been looking at the brand’s trajectory for a while now, whether through collaborations with Juicy Couture, Boy Smells and London-based label Ahluwalia, or by photographing coveted items. want when the brand is sold from one of our favorite brands retailers like SSENSE, Net-A-Porter, Shopbop or Outnet. So to see if we really were the real #GanniGirls, we reached out to Ganni and asked the brand to share some of their bestsellers with us, which we then tried. them to help you determine if you want to be #GanniGirl or not.
Size 8 | Size 10 | Size 4 |Takeaways
I have a large size and like the fit. Wool coats tend to make me look like Spongebob-esque and squishy, which isn’t my thing, but the thick ribbon at the bottom makes me look glamorous and flattering.
Right. The price tag is a bit steep for a wool vest, especially one that isn’t 100% wool (the fabric is a blend of 45% recycled wool and 20% recycled polyamide), but I love the look and feel. his cozy feeling.
Why? This vest is not only versatile and is an ideal transition piece as we head into fall. It looks good with a smooth white blouse or turtleneck or even on its own. She is a sweater vest that can do it all!
I would downsize for this, especially if you want it to be close to the body. I was pleasantly surprised by this dress – it was quite comfortable with lots of stretch marks.
No. I see it on a hanger and say to myself “absolutely not”, but once I put it on it quickly becomes “absolutely possible.” I might wear it once or twice to a party, but I wouldn’t find this dress a repeating star in my wardrobe. And for the price, it’s just not worth it for me.
If you want a better fit, I’d downsize (or choose the one my coworker tried on), but honestly, with this dress, it depends on how you want it to lie. The sample I tried was a little too big for me, but I like the roominess I got.
No. While 100% cotton is sexy to me and it’s cool (perfect for sweltering summer subway stations), it doesn’t appeal to me in terms of shape. Though if you like a grassy dress that’s a bit hard to shape, you’ll love this. Personally, I don’t see myself wearing it unless the weather changes seasons and it gets unbearably hot and the only clothes I can bear to wear are dresses that don’t touch my body (this can happen because climate crisis). And since fall is already here, it may be too light to layer.
I went up a size in this dress and am glad I did, but again, there’s a lot of stretch going on, which makes sizing a little easier. The fit of this camisole really surprised me. I thought I would look like a sock in this dress and… to my surprise I didn’t. In fact, I’ve looked, dare I say, a little good. I wish the bodice hugged my midsection a bit more, but I really noticed the drop in my waistline, which I didn’t expect.
For a lower price, yes. But since I’m not too into it and my fit is a bit out of my comfort zone, I can’t justify spending almost half a thousand dollars (WTF) on a dress that I at least won’t wear. . ten times. However, what if a friend said to me, “Hey, I don’t want this dress anymore, do I?” I will answer with a resounding “Sure!” I think this is a perfect dress for day or night and is incredibly versatile.
I don’t like how it fits because of where it is on the belt. Because of my body, it’s a bit boxy on me, and sometimes I like boxy fit clothes, but for this particular part, I wasn’t. I think tight pants work well if I have a trench coat or something that hugs my waist.
No, just because I’ve never really been a sweater girl with a vest. If I absolutely have to wear it, I might style it with a button down or layer it with something that hugs my waist, or I can tweak it to be more cropped.
I am obsessed with the print and will really consider their cardigan selection.
Here’s another one that surprised me with a great fit. I also downsized in this because the material bunches up too much, but when I size it right it hits every curve and fits great except for the sleeve part it keeps falling off down a bit.
No, that’s not my style. I would probably buy it if the lacing wasn’t ruffled and wear it with shoes in a pop of color.
It’s a perfect fit of ten by ten. I was surprised.
Yes, if I needed a different LBD from my usual style (that would be a body-hugging dress or blazer.) I would consider wearing it to work with heels as I don’t normally wear it. the dresses that match the calf this place makes. That would make me feel a little more classy in the outfit.
It really fits, especially if you’re like me and like pieces that fit. It completely hugs the body down to the middle of the thigh before it explodes. And normally I don’t ruffle, but there’s something about this one that makes me a little more flattering.
This is probably the only dress out of all I’ve tried that I’ll buy. That surprised me because, again, it’s not something I usually wear. I would probably wear it with black shoes for a monochrome look and a black hair and red lips.
I chose size 36, which is US 4, and it’s perfect for wearing alone or in layers over a button-down shirt or patterned t-shirt. Not too tight, not too baggy.
Right. 100 percent. A sweater vest is the perfect transitional weather item. Cozy enough to protect your body from chilly winds but also cool enough to not sweat too much while walking around or waiting for the subway. At $215, the price is pretty steep, but considering all the ways you can wear it, it’s well worth it.
Amazing! While I may not be a fan of bodycon dresses, I do love a poplin dress, and this silhouette perfectly blends the two. According to the salesperson at the brand’s Soho location, this dress is a bestseller in every collection – to no one’s surprise, it’s a classic Ganni dress. It features contrast stitching, puffy sleeves, and a jacket. Another plus: The brushing makes you perfect for pairing a wool coat (as seen above) without having to worry if the fabric of the dress will make you look too sloppy. Alternatively, you can also wear the dress with the back to the front. That’s what I did to expose my chest with a V-neck sweater. The more you know!
Yes, along with the sweater. I’ve seen the dress sold at other retailers like Nordstrom and SSENSE, but now that I know it looks good and it’s versatile, I’ll trigger this purchase because I know I’ll be wearing it at events events, dinners, brunches, vibing, etc
Quite odd. I stuck with my size 36 (US 4), zips easily and fits very well around the waist, but one shoulder keeps sliding down. I mean, it could have been a cute off-shoulder moment, but it wasn’t for me.
No. The smaller size would be too tight for me. I can see how (and why) Ganni capitalizes on all of their best-selling silhouettes, fabrics, and prints with this one. You have seersucker, checkered and ruffled fabrics, but it’s a bit too much for my style. If I had to wear it my way, I’d be stylish to the office in a white tank, a few pairs of trousers, and a pair of pointed toe heels.
I don’t wear bodycon dresses. However, I was surprised by this. It hugs the body perfectly and the pleats allow enough fabric so you don’t feel unduly compressed. I’d say it’s true to size, especially since you can adjust the tightness you want thanks to the cord around the neck.
If it’s on sale, yes! This dress is out of my comfort zone, but for a more reasonable price, I would love to wear it to upcoming holiday events.
first. There is something for every style at Ganni. You just need to know what you are willing to invest in.
2. If you’re looking for puffy dresses, floral prints and versatile options, this is your stop.
3. The sizes are a bit inconsistent as the shadows vary quite a bit. We recommend going to one of their stores and checking the IRL. Their return policy is just three simple steps and it’s free.
4. They are available at lots of other retailers, so always do a quick Google search for the specific item you want. You never know who will discount your size, making the purchase 100 times more worthwhile.
