Initially, I overlooked the J. Crew Double-Breasted Coat in Mini Check because I was nervous that it would look hideous on me. Boy was I wrong. Very wrong. This coat is AH-MAZING:
Fit Details: I sized up from a 12 to a 14 in this coat because it is a “slim fit.” Most of the reviewers on the J. Crew website note that they sized up as well. I am wearing the J. Crew Oversized Striped Turtleneck underneath, which is thick at all. I could definitely get a thicker sweater underneath the coat. This coat is SO classic, timeless, and versatile.
The J. Crew Sweater Skirt is equally adorable. The fit is TTS. I am typically a size 14 on bottom, and I went with the size Large. The skirt will stretch because of the sweater material. There is an elastic waistband with a zipper in the back. Also, the skirt is longer than the typical pencil skirt, but the length really elongates my legs. The material is substantial, but not incredibly thick. It’s not see through either in my opinion.
J. Crew website and Pinterest images are incredibly convincing/amazing. But, that is how marketing works, right? I was sold on the image/outfit the moment that I saw it:
