Two sweaters arrived today, and I need an opinion on them.
The first is a light blue - a color I've been trying to find for more than a year.

The second, I bought thinking that it might be a good 'statement' sweater.

Both are quite a big larger than I was expecting (I think my idea of sizing is still stuck on last year's size, not this year's roominess, so I tend to size up, when I shouldn't)

My question is: Are they nicely oversized, or swamping me? A size down isn't available in the light blue, but is in the colorblock (which is the bigger of the two - and the light pink colorway in that one is interesting me too..)

I'm showing them about how I'll wear them (except, I hope, for the wrinkles from packing). Do the proportions work at all? Is it worth trying a size down in the colorblock, or should I go for something entirely different?

Another note - they'll probably shrink a big in the wash, right?
