J.Crew New Arrivals: Colorblocked Stripe Long Sleeve Tee and Enamel Link Bracelet


Are you ready for yet another striped top from J.Crew? This time it's colorblocked.

I think the Colorblocked Stripe Long-sleeve tee will be very popular when more people see it in real life. I ordered the madagascar peri version to try and knew it was a keeper as soon I took it out of the package. The neckline is flattering and not too low and it's made from a substantial cotton knit that isn't sheer at all. The fit is true to size. I'm not sure why this was called a long sleeve tee because the sleeves are actually bracelet length.

My bag is J.Crew's classic metallic Thompson tote.


The Enamel link bracelet is also very pretty and there's a matching necklace available too. The jeans are Forever 21 premium denim colored skinny jeans. I stay away from their cheaper colored jeans because the denim is too thin. These are just the right thickness for a smooth fitting skinny jean.

The top also works with a skirt. Try a color similar to mine, or royal blue, classic navy, or white. Tuck it in, add a skinny red, yellow, or blue belt or try it with a colorful bag or shoes. There are many styling options with this top.
