Size 4 – warm plum – As with most of these looser, oversized tops you will probably want to size down. I would get the 4, as opposed to a 6. The color looks close to this. It reads as a blue, but with purple in there. I’m 5’0″ and like this length. If you have a shorter torso and/or wear petite, you might prefer that size.
The keyhole has a button inside the shirt, as opposed to a hook-eye closure. I wish they wouldn’t make the keyholes so long. This one isn’t as bad as some of the necklines we’ve seen, but they could still bring it up at least 1/2″ – 1″.
Seamed utility pant (FA14, B3006) runs 00-14. Color choices are bronzed moss and olive moss. 100% cotton.
Size 6 – olive moss – The inseam is listed online as 20 3/4″. I like the odd length. I think it will look good with heels (e.g. 2nd pic). My usual size 6 felt a little big, particularly in the elastic waist and the back thigh. I re-ordered size 4 and they’re on the way. There’s a chance they might be just a little tight in the front thigh, but they will probably stretch a little.
ETA: I recvd the Size 4 -and they fit better. The rise feels long. I didn’t notice it as much in the 6, I don’t know why. I do love the fabric, as I do with most J. Crew utility pants. Very solid. You’d think this color is bronzed moss. The bronzed moss looks like this, but these are olive moss, same as above. They just photographed lighter. I had to check the dirty clothes to make sure I got that right. They olive moss is looking very light in this pic.
Stripe short-sleeve sweater (HO14, B5286, $98) runs XXS – XL. The color is called ivory brownstone (IBR). 100% merino wool.

Size M – I’ve never caught this sweater in XS, S or M to try. Finally at least a M. It was too big. Based on trying this, I think if you want it to fit loosely, get your usual size. If you want it to fit tighter, size down one. This is a guess, though. Remember you can always call customer service to ask for measurements. I saw it on Instagram or a blog and she had a long sleeve shirt under. It was a cute look. To help gauge length for yourself, I’m 5’0″.
Ludlow pant in gold linen (HO14, B6518) run 00-12. The color is called olive gold (OGO). 56% linen, 44% cotton.
Size 4 – waist = 33″, hip = 39.5″
Size 6 – waist = 34″, hip = 40.5″
Size 6 – They mostly fit tts, but the rise was really high. Higher than a mid-rise. They were a little big in the back thigh as many of J. Crew’s pants are on me. Overall the fit was fine. Now that I recall, the cut is like a regular pair of pants. I would’ve preferred a cigarette cut and in the bright gold shade that’s on the website.
I expected them to have a greenish cast based on the color name. And I figured they were pants version of the metallic linen shorts (review). I liked the greenish cast in the shorts. It makes them less prone to look like roller disco shorts. However, in the pants, I do wish they were more of a true gold like the stock pic. I agree with Wendy’s review that if you have the shape to fill these out, you’ll be fine. If you’re flat, they’re going to just hang there and might not be flattering. She had hers altered.
