J Crew: Pleated Chiffon Hem Tee, Shrunken Boy Shirt in Misty Forest Plaid, Lace Applique’ Sweater, Relaxed Wool Turtleneck with Rib Trim

Last up from J Crew are a few tops and sweaters.

~ Pleated Chiffon Hem Tee, Black, Small ~
I wasn’t a fan of this on the hanger and even more so on me. The Small fit me just fine. I even tried on a Medium in the Gray which was so loose on me. The chiffon hem is nice but the shape is square, even more so than a regular tee, I think. It looks really boxy on the model image.

Also, the scoopneck is too oval-shaped to adjust well under a cardigan or blazer. Or at least I was struggling with the sleeves and neckline to get it to lay flat and not be bunchy. Maybe I would like the Stripe version better? I will say that the cotton is soft and comfortable.

This was one of the first items from the latest rollout that I added to my wishlist and wanted to see in person. I didn’t even read the description and notice it was flannel. It’s not a super thick flannel but still thicker than the Emerald Buffalo Check I tried on. I was very comfortable in the size 6 in that top. I feel this one is more TTS.

The olive green is just as saturated IRL as it is online and what originally drew me to this shirt.

~ Lace Applique’ Sweater, Flannel Ivory, Medium ~
Yikes! This sweater was a hot mess on me. Look how tight the Medium fits in the arms and across the chest. I was so uncomfortable in this and it was itchy.

I did like the Gray color better than the Navy/Azurite but I’d have to size up to a Large and maybe even an XL. It’s just way too tight in the arms to wear a Medium.

 ~ Relaxed Wool Turtleneck with Rib Trim, Heather Dockside, Small ~

I tried this on in the Bright Orchid but I originally grabbed the Heather Dockside color for the fitting room. The color is a pretty heathered blue and the Small fits well.

I like that the turtleneck is not tight. I don’t wear many because of that reason.

The only thing I was really interested in and added to my wishlist was the Shrunken Boy Shirt in Misty Forest Plaid, but I don’t like it enough to purchase it full-price.

What are you thoughts on these tops?
