Review: Houndstooth for fall

Stopped by the Crew for the promo on full price items and saw the asymmetrical houndstooth skirt and matching regent blazer.  My review below.

Sissi’s Weekly Review – 17th September 2014

What: Asymmetrical houndstooth skirt and matching regent blazer by J.Crew

Season: Fall 2014

Material: 100% wool outer, 100% poly lining for both

Quality: Excellent.  The wool is warm and high quality.  The colors are pretty dark, perfect for Fall and Winter.  May seem a little matronly, depending on how you pair it.

Fit: True to size.  If you are between sizes at the Crew, I’d advise to go with your larger size because of the straight A-line.  I LOVE the zippers as they add attitude to the simple cut.  Am stalking the cream and burgundy colors for the sales 🙂 I feel the skirt (or the blazer) will complement any of those vibrantly colorful tops from the crew, a nice toner aside from the usual blacks, greys and blues.

Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper…the promo is good but you may want to hold for sale, if it lasts 🙂  Have you tried on either item? Please share!

  1. I saw your comment on JCA blog. Thanks for reviewing these pieces. I’ve got my eye on all of these zip pencil skirts. I really love the style, just waiting to see which one I can snag on sale.
