|J. Crew Long-Sleeve Tweed Dress with Fringe // Navy // 00P|
1. J. Crew’s Long-Sleeve Tweed Dress with Fringe has a fairly compelling premise: it’s the dress that will allow you to sleep in a little longer because of how effortless it is. The medium-weight tweed fabric transcends seasons; the long-sleeve design obviates the need for a jacket; and the fitted silhouette accentuates and flatters even the least dramatic of curves. I had blogged about the multicolored tweed version here, but wanted to show the dress in the “right” size. As I mentioned in the review, the style fits about a size smaller in the torso than comparable J. Crew sheath dresses.
