J Crew: Structured Flutter Tee

Hi everyone! I finally had the time to visit J Crew and do some try-ons, from the February roll-out. I’ve been in the office all week so I am really hoping to swing by the Factory Store on my way home today as well!

~ Structured Flutter Tee, Heather Graphite, Small ~
I ordered this when there was a 25% off promo but it hadn’t arrived before I went to the B&M. I ordered a Small based off of the reviews. The first thing to note is that this top is pull-over. No buttons or (exposed) zippers anywhere. They could have done an exposed zip but had a little self-restraint from doing so. It stretches enough to get over your head. The arms fit fine and the length is good. The knit feels like a ponte-scuba. It’s not too thick for Spring but might get a little warm in the Summer. 

~ Medium ~
Once I tried on the Medium I knew the reviews were correct and sizing down is needed for a good fit. You can see how loose this top is at the arms and through the body. The Small just skimmed my waist and wasn’t snug. The Medium is too big through the body. This makes the peplum look not so “peppy”. 

Structured Flutter Tee, Ivory, Small ~ 
The Ivory is not sheer or see-through in any way but personally I did not like the color. For me, the Heather Graphite fits better into my current closet. I think the Ivory will look great with all the solid J Crew Pencil Skirts. I think you could also wear a short necklace, not one of the layered ones I currently prefer. 

Overall, size down in this top. Remember that this is a pull-over style (do your hair and make-up before putting this on). I think my package arrived at the house and I’ll keep the Heather Graphite and return the Ivory.

Have a Great Day! More reviews to come all weekend!

    They lost their self-restraint on the Jet Set Geo Shift Dress with zips all the way up to the arms! I bought and returned the Structured Flutter Tee — the dropped shoulder sleeves just didn't do it for me. Thanks for all your reviews.

    I love this little tee – bought it in both colourways as it flatters my shape, one in S and one in my usual M. I wanted to layer a shirt under the larger one and it looks really cute imo. Not great pic on my IG (poettodesign) but I'm looking forward to more interpretations of it since it's so cold up here I will need to layer things for some time yet 😉
