J. Crew Crystal Necklace Sweater

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Crystal Necklace Sweater caught my attention earlier this week when I stopped by the retail store to check out the new arrivals.  I LOVE this sweater.  I should note that I had to size up because my normal size large was a bit snug in the midsection.

Here are a few IRL pictures:


I plan to style this sweater multiple ways, but one of my favorites is with a gingham shirt underneath.

Here is another picture of the sweater:


And, finally, a full shot of the sweater.  The underarms are slightly baggy as a result of sizing up, but I'll probably double layer tops to take up some of that slack:


What do you think of the J. Crew Crystal Necklace Sweater?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love this sweater. It's like built in jewelry so one less step getting ready lol. I really like how you combined the colors but I, like you, love the color green. Looks great on you!

  7. I saw that sweater in the store this week and thought it was great! But I resisted as it would be too warm here in Spring to wear that heavy merino. Glad that you can wear it!!! I love the placement of the "necklace" pieces. And it looked plenty long enough as well! I'm not a gingham fan, that;s just me. I think if I wore that together it would look too busy. But if we
    wanted to wear that sweater now, I agree, it needs something underneath with long sleeves.

    Aren't you loving all the new jewelry??? I admit, I have ordered several, lol. Still working on how to store it - how about you? I remember you had a post about finding another way than just stacking all the boxes. Let us know if you figure it out!! I need help, lol.

    1. Suzy: I squealed when I saw this sweater in the retail store. I think that it's adorable. I love the placement of the necklace as well.

      About the new jewelry: I'm totally loving it! The designs, colors, and quality have been absolutely stunning and fabulous. What pieces have you ordered?

      About jewelry storage: I'm still trying to find storage that works for me. I am really odd about how I store my jewelry. I don't like things to get tangled, so I want to lay them flat in separate places. I'll definitely post pictures when I figure it out!

  10. Tried this on too and now it's on my list. I like the shirt underneath so it can be worn now. I wonder how it would look under a navy or green cardigan if you could find the right shade. Or maybe it navy schoolboy. I just would want to wear it now since it would be too warm for summer.

    1. Shopping Celle: It's a great sweater! I really like the shirt underneath, too. I always layer, so I'll have to wear mine with a shirt/blazer each time I wear it. Great idea about the blazer combination.
