I know I post a lot of J. Crew, but I can’t help myself! I love the Tippi sweater from J. Crew. I bought this striped one on sale, and if I could buy one in every color, I would. I like it BECAUSE the sleeves are 3/4 length! It makes the sweater seasonless (my made up word that means it can be worn year round- ha!). You can wear this just as easily in the spring as you can in the fall.
I get asked a lot about how to wear 3/4 length sleeves. I say, you can wear them whichever way makes you feel best. For instance, this day I was liking the clean lines of the sweater, so I just rolled the sleeves to a place that was comfortable to me and then put the sweater on top. I could even wear this with the popover sleeves down, or I could have done the J. Crew sleeve roll. I think all three different ways would look great! One of my favorite work outfits was to wear a black boat neck 3/4 length sleeve sweater, a white blouse underneath, and a strand of pearls- I felt so Ann Hathaway in Devil Wears Prada!
I was with my very stylish S-I-L the day of this post and she was wearing these Ray Bans- oh how I want these Ray Bans! They are so classic. Shoot, another thing to be added to my very long Christmas list!
