Gray + Ribbed = Perfection

J. Crew

I picked up this gray top at J. Crew today. I Bought a size larger than I usually wear because it’s quite fitted and I like a little room. Lightweight wool, it’s perfect now for cooler evenings, and later as a transition piece. A true win-win.

As I post this, every size is in stock.

  • The ribbed sweater is a nice change from typical t-shirt style sweaters– In the late 60’s, we called these ‘poor boy sweaters,’ and wore them with A-line mini skirts which sat on the hips and block heel pumps. I wore this exact ensemble to Cotillion, all wool, in a greeny-blue shade I can’t describe. And yes, I got invited to dance . . . !

  • Great find. Love it in navy too. How fitted is it? I tend to go back and forth between small and xsmall with Jcrew tops. Is a medium going to be humongous or is it that fitted? Thanks for your help! Liz

  • Thank you Preston! I look at Crew all the time and still manage to miss most of the good stuff. I got this in navy and gray.
