Hello friend! With fall here, I am starting to transition my closet. To better understand how I do so, read my fall transition post. As discussed in that post, because I live in Los Angeles, we stay warm for a bit longer than other parts of the world. Therefore, I thought that the J Crew colorblock eyelet peplum sweater would be the ideal transition piece.
J Crew Colorblock Eyelet Peplum Sweater: Review
I initially purchased this sweater on a whim during a late night online purchase (if you watch my insta stories, you know I am a midnight shopper!). When I received the J Crew colorblock eyelet peplum sweater I knew it would be a good transition piece. The pretty eyelet is reminiscent of summer, while the sweater back gives a nod to fall.
The fit of the J Crew colorblock eyelet peplum sweater is true to size. I purchased my usual XS. The peplum starts at a good spot, not too high and not too low. It also ends at a descent length (right at my hip bone). Thus it can be worn comfortably with any type of rise on the bottoms without risking showing off any unintended patches of skin.
J Crew Colorblock Eyelet Peplum Sweater: Casual Styling
As I had imagined during my midnight shopping spree, the J Crew colorblock eyelet peplum sweater is quite easy to style. I started with a casual summer look. Thus, I had to pair it with my denim shorts. They needed one last hurrah! It turned into a very cute and casual styling.
J Crew Colorblock Eyelet Peplum Sweater: Office Styling
To prove that the J Crew colorblock eyelet peplum sweater is versatile enough to stay in my wardrobe, I decided to style it for a work outfit. I easily paired it with a pencil skirt. I think a peplum top always goes well with a pencil skirt. It is just a lovely feminine look.
Of course I had to add some print into the mix. At first I was a tad nervous to do so. I wasn’t sure if it would be too much with the multiple textures in the J Crew colorblock eyelet peplum sweater. But because the colors of the print were neutral, the leopard print skirt paired well with the top.
For shoes I went with classic nude pumps. I also added my fall sunglasses. I had been looking for a brown pair of sunglasses that weren’t boring. These ones with their metallic finish are just what I wanted.
I was concerned about accessorizing with the J Crew colorblock eyelet peplum sweater. Because of the textures in the top and the ribbing at the collar, I didn’t want to add a necklace that would overshadow the top. I therefore went with a dainty yet statement making pendant necklace.
After these initial pairings of the J Crew colorblock eyelet peplum sweater, I am quite happy with my purchase. It will be a good item to wear during fall transition and beyond! How would you style the J Crew colorblock eyelet peplum sweater?
