I’ve been raving about this sweater jacket on IG for a while now, but it’s one of those pieces that deserves its own post! The quality, fit and details (small pockets …… gold buttons!) all express my love for the classic. I’m wearing a pair of 7-point stretch pants here, and I wanted to check them out along with a few other J.Crew spring pieces I’ve tried.
When I took it out of the package, I felt transported back to the vintage-quality J.Crew days that so many of us missed. It’s made of tightly woven 100% cotton fabric (a fabric that doesn’t break easily) and weighs a lot, but is still light enough to wear on a hot summer night.
The xxs regular fit me surprisingly well, including the sleeves and torso length, and it’s designed in a slightly square cut, like a short tweed jacket. The navy blue stripe is both cute and classic, and I’m reluctant to buy it in multiple colors, but I really like the black!
I’d wear it casually with denim, with tailored shorts and strappy sandals for a summer night out, and also with overalls and pants.
