J. CREW TURTLENECK REVIEW

Waist = 27.5’’

Hip = 38.5’’

Thigh = 22’’

Calf = 12.25’’

Inseam = 27’’

J. Crew Perfect Fit Turtleneck - Size Small

What I loved…

  • Length - Even though J.Crew doesn’t offer this top in a petite size, the length still worked well for my short torso. 

  • Sleeves - Also happy to report that sleeves ended right at my wrists so they weren’t covering my hands. 

  • Comfortable fabric - Really loved the fabric of this turtleneck it was super soft! 


What could have been better…

  • Neck area - The only thing I would change about this turtleneck is that how thick the fabric was around the neck. I wish the material was a little thinner or perhaps just a mockneck. However, it wasn’t a deal breaker for me. 


Garment measurements:

HPS to bottom hem = 25.5’’

Bust = 16.25’’ or 32.5’’

Waist = 14.25’’ or 28.5’’

Bottom opening = 16.25’’

Sleeve length = 28.5’’

Center back = 24.5’’


Verdict: Buy! 

 

Everlane Authentic Stretch High Rise Skinny Jean - Size 28 Ankle

What I loved…

  • Length - Everlane also offer this style in Regular and Tall lengths, but I opted for the Ankle length because it’s more petite friendly. (Inseam measurement = 26’’)

  • Comfy - Love that these jeans are a mix of cotton, modal, polyester and spandex because it makes them more comfortable and stretchy then a 98% cotton/2% spandex blend. 

What could have been better…

  • Slight waist gap - These jeans were a little big in the waist, but it was not super noticeable. These jeans are super stretchy so they kind of form fit around your waist. However, I still would wear a belt with them.


Garment measurements:

Waist = 28’’

Front rise = 11’’

Back rise = 15.13’’

Inseam = 26.25’’

Verdict: Buy!
