J Crew Schoolboy in Eyelet: Three Tees...Three Ways

It's probably no secret that I love the schoolboy blazer.  (I have a few.  :o))  The schoolboy in eyelet is no exception.

J Crew describes it as:
Boy meets girl in this most lovely iteration of our beloved schoolboy blazer. Crafted from allover eyelets (our current obsession) and tailored to the nines, it features a slightly shrunken fit. Online only.
  • Cotton
  • Hits at hip.
  • Notch collar.
  • Long sleeves.
  • Welt pockets.
It retailed for $175 but has been marked down to $99.99.  and if you purchase it today with the 30% off code "MUSTHAVE", it rings up at $69.99.  A steal imo.

The fit is tts and it can be dressed up or down.  Here are just a few of the ways that I've worn mine.

J Crew Chiffon Rose Tee
J Crew Pearl Necklace
Target Bootcut Jeans



J Crew Candy Tee
American Eagle Skinny Jeans
J Crew Factory Twisted Pearl Hammock Necklace
J Crew Kinzie Calf-Hair Ballet Flats




J Crew Space-Dyed Tee
J Crew Mahali-Dot Cafe Capri
J Crew Half Pave Necklace
J Crew Mila Heels

  5. How do you find the arms fit? I am tall 5"8 but am afraid to size up and then it maybe too boxy.

    1. I'm 5'5 1/2" and the arms hit me around the top of my hand. I measured my jacket (size 4) down the underside of the arm...from the armpit to the cuff, it measures approx. 17 1/2". If I were you, I would go with my normal size and if the sleeves are a touch short, just unbutton them and flip them back. Actually, that's how I've worn mine each time. Hope this helps!
