Another promo is being offered at J.Crew this weekend. You can take 30% off your purchase with code LOTSTOSHOP. Everything I’m reviewing today is included in this promo.
It looks like shoulder baring tops are here to stay for Spring and Summer. I do like the cold-shoulder tops a little more than the off-the-shoulder tops because if the straps are wide enough, you can wear a regular bra. Originally, I thought this fit TTS to a little loose for me. I think because I am broad-shouldered, I should wear an 8 or 10. But since these types of shirts don’t have any material constricting right at the shoulders, I can size down. I know that sounds odd but the size 6 fit me a lot better than the 8.
~ Polka-Dot Cold-Shoulder Top, size 6 ~
~ Cold-Shoulder Top, Fresh Poppy, size 6 ~
The size 6 fit great in this silk version of the cold-shoulder top but the straps are way too loose. I don’t know if it was this specific shirt or the silk style in general. I ordered the pretty green Warm Clover color so I am hoping the straps are little more fitted.
~ Embroidered Tie-Neck Top in Printed Indian Voile, size 6 ~
This is a cute top and the cotton is really soft. I found this to fit a size big since the 6 fits pretty well. You can tie the neck or leave them untied, both look fine. Elastic at the “cuffs” always bother me so this is a no for me.
~ Cuffed Pant in Shirting Stripe, size 6 ~
I’m so happy pants are no longer skinny and there are wide-leg options. I sized down to a 6 in this pant and it fits. The length is even cropped on me! These are very familiar to me. Almost like I wore something similar in this stripe and material as a kid. They are thin and lightweight and not lined, but also not see-through. I could do without the waist-tie though. I’ll either find an old skinny belt or got without.
~ One-Shoulder Ruffle Top in Eyelet, White, size 8 ~
My store did not get these in stock. This was a return, in all three colors. I wasn’t really sure about sizing so I’m glad someone else made the purchase for me so I could try this on. Like reviewers are stating, this runs big. I feel it does run 2 sizes too big. The size 8 is very loose all over. I am happy to say that I didn’t find the ruffle too overwhelming.
~ One-Shoulder Ruffle Top in Eyelet, Black, size 6 ~
The size 6 fit a little better but still seemed loose under the arm. I like the black though the nude lining is close to my skin tone. I’ve ordered the size 4 so I’ll report back on how that one fit.
~ Mini Skirt in Fringy Lace, Renaissance Red, size 8 ~
This red looks more like a true red IRL and the fringe makes it really fun for Spring and Summer. The size 8 fits TTS and on my hips, making the length a little big longer for me.
