NIC+ZOE

NIC+ZOE Logo
Dorian Lightbown, the Creative Director & designer behind NIC+ZOE, has always had a passion for knitwear. Even as a little girl, she didn’t just play with dolls—she styled and outfitted them. After attending Pratt and RISD as a young woman, she moved to Paris, which remains one of her favorite sources of design inspiration to this day. Then after over 20 years of bringing her ideas to life as a knitwear designer, she followed her entrepreneurial spirit and launched her own company in 2005.

Affectionately named after her two favorite people—her children, Nicholas & Zoë— the company is both a family business and a brand built upon feel-good fabrics. From finding the softest yarns in Shanghai to discovering new color palates in Italy, Dorian travels the world for the creative inspiration and technological innovations that help her seasonally reinvent knitwear. Her visionary approach to hand selecting textiles, designing prints, artisanally mixing colors and creating new stitching techniques ensures every design is unique. Each season, Dorian delivers a uniquely colored collection including sweaters, skirts, jackets, tops, dresses and pants, in both knits and wovens. It’s for women who wrap themselves in self-expression and wear their beauty from the inside, out—women like her daughter, Zoë, women like her industry mentors and, most of all, women like you.

This is a very cute sweater top, love the colors & fabric. However, very pricey! I like it enough to keep it, but it is over priced!!

I wanted a wrap to go over a summer dress for cool evenings, this is just right. Watermelon color is nice, not too bright, versatile with navy, gray, black. I am 5'5" 38C bra and needed an XL to not be too clingy. 4 star for high price for item, even on sale IMHO. I returned the lighter weight four-way cardy because it wasn't substantial enough.

I had to have it tailored 2 inches smaller ( I bought the small, I’m 5’6 119) but totally worth it. Great skirt! I’ve worn in 5 times in two weeks to various occasions. So comfortable

It is just what I'm looking for in a light wrap to go with casual dressy chilly evenings. Seems overpriced, ..I'm 5'5" 155lb 38C bra, and need an XL, so returning this size.

Too big.....12-14, and probably too small 10-12 so won't reorder. Need to stay with standard size of 12. Beautiful dress on model. Color brighter than I expected.

This is a nice top, but I think it runs small around the arms. It is not see through so you can wear a nude bra and be ok. I like that it is long in the back to cover the rear.

This is a super comfy, super cute/shapely jacket! I’m not a fan of a lapel collar, but I ironed the collar up and the lapel flat, so it wears/lays nicely. I refuse to buy suit jackets without spandex, so this cotton/knit fabric is a common go to jacket for me. It’s unique, which makes it worth the price - and I’ll heed the comments from others and dry clean to hopefully preserve the shape... I’ve only had it for a couple of months and worn it maybe half dozen times so far.

Print was nice but size was too big. I usually wear a Petite size 8. This was a petite medium—armholes too big, neckline too low. Will be returning this

Great fabric and a very cute style. I love the 3/4 length sleeves. I typically wear a M (8-10) but in this the L (12-14) was a better fit, as I didn't want it to be tight under the arms.

I ordered this shirt in March and originally really liked it. The fabric is nice and the shirt is comfortable, but that being said every time I thought I might take the tags off and wear it, I found I would always put it back in the closet and wear something else. It was too boxy and not at all fitted. I wear a 12 and the large fits 12 to 14. I think it more likely is a solid 14 in fit. After 2 months of trying it on and putting it back I returned it.

True to size. Yes, the material is thinner than the standard denim, but that means cooler and more comfortable to me in the summer time. I looked a long time for a denim skirt with this cut, as it is more flattering to my figure than the many pencil cut styles that predominate the market now.

This top was everything I love in a top, BUT the quality of it is unacceptable. I am a fan of NIC&ZOE and own a fair amount of their clothes. I opened the package from Zappos and discovered that it had several pulls. I tried on the top and it was so cute and I loved it. I pulled the wayward snags to the backside of the fabric. I wore it one day, just a rather normal day, and I started getting snags. Buy the end of the normal non eventful day I had probably 30 snags. Unbelievable.

Nic + Zoe is almost always good quality and design. This dress looks very flattering on; I’m tall (5’8”) and it’s an appropriate length for work. It will be a comfy summer work dress (and low maintenance).

In the photo this looks like a linen weave. It's actually a knit. It looks ok, but I prefer the crispness of linen fabric.

Cute if you are tall but I'm only 5'1" and I would look silly in this. Loved the fabric. Maybe if it were flared out a tiny bit instead of stick straight it would have worked. Unfortunately I'm returning.
