Happy Friday, ladies. I’m used to stepping into J. Jill and finding a flood of warm colors, so this past week was a pleasant surprise.
If you are new here, welcome. Dressing Room Her diary is when she goes to the local store for a fitting session. You can see what’s new and how it looks on women over 25. For reference, I think she’s 5’4″ and weighs about 134 pounds. I have broad shoulders, a straight waist, a long torso and long arms. I often buy one size up. I want you to see what’s in store and get some styling ideas, so you’ll see me try on clothes in colors and shapes that you may or may not like. Please let me know what size I am wearing so that I can help you understand.
J.Jill has simplified sizing and all styles are now available as rPeriodic Sizes XS-4X. Petites and talls are still available in popular styles, and all sizes are the same price.
these are J.Jill’s bootcut jeans With subtle raw hems flying from my local store. This 8 petite was too big and too short for me, but it was my only option to show you, so I bought a pair. Ordered 🙂 They have a nice high rise and soft wash.of 3/4 sleeve pima cotton T-shirt 8 colors and 1 floral pattern. The hip length is low, so you can wear it over skinny pants or leggings. Length is most important with 3/4 sleeves, so a medium petite would be better for me. Color.
Threw this sweater poncho More than it looks. I love the shape of this poncho and it looks great with a lot of things this fall.I have this ink blue or birch heather.
These slim punch pants It’s a deep navy and comes in three neutrals. Currently 30% off. The pull-on style makes it super easy to wear, and the faux fly front allows it to be worn with shorter tops. The fabric is easy to care for and perfect for travel. Most petite pants are too short for me, so I think this little petite is a little short for me.
white tunic shaht also come in black, that would be fun Flax heather twill pants. The tunic is a cotton/polyester/spandex blend with excellent stretch. The 3/4 sleeves mean this is a much better length for me, who is petite.
these are Wear Ever Slim Leg Pants It comes in 3 colors, but I’m wearing navy blue. I’m wearing a regular with the hem folded down once. The petite inseam is a full 2 1/2 inches shorter, which seems like a big difference to me. kimono sweater is swimming, but I wanted to try this delicious color. That’s the smallest size they had. It’s true to size according to the website, but the medium is about 50 1/2 inches chest, so We recommend sizing down.
This everyday V-neck pullover It comes in four basic colors, and I’m wearing navy blue. I love the fit of this sweater. A thin knit that drapes beautifully and is easy to layer underneath.Excellent compatibility with This slim leg pants For a row of cool toned colors 🙂
this tencel shirt It has the most beautiful delphinium colors, white and this blue stripe. Tucked or untucked, it’s a very relaxed shape. Center back lengths are Medium 27½”, R 2X 29″, P Medium 26″, T Medium 29″. Surprisingly, I think these sleeves are a little big as they are not too short for this petite me due to their loose shape.
This is the same poncho popped over this look. This sweater cape poncho.
This soft luxe shirt Really nice! The rayon weave has a silky feel and is machine washable. Available in 4 colors, this is Midnight Sky. Slightly flared cropped sleeves complement the bracelet 🙂 Boyfriend Her jeans come in her four colors and have rolled up hems to adjust to your desired length. I wear Brooklyn wash. Pine green and the iconic wash are also cool tones.
this curved hem knit shirt Very soft and comfortable. Available in cream and this stunning cool-toned peacock color. The cotton/Tencel/spandex blend is stretchy enough to slip over your head. A subtle shirttail hemline that looks great untucked.
this long cardigan It comes in 4 colors, but I’m wearing blue sage. The cotton/modal blend is thin enough for warm autumn days. I really like V-neck cardigans because they overlap rather than compete with the front-button shirt neckline.
this tunic top It was on a hanger outside my dressing room that I “borrowed” to style for you. It’s a little A-line form, so I don’t go up in size because it’s full of volume. I again prefer the petite because the center back length is 29½ inches normal, 28 inches petite, and 31 inches tall.
Here are some of J.Jill’s other discoveries.
