Today’s Coveted Working Look: J.Crew Pop-Over Tops

by Anne Dreshfield | March 24th, 2014   

I hit the mall this last Saturday with one mission: to find a dress suitable for my friend’s summer wedding in Napa. And I’m happy to say I succeeded (I scooped up this incredible dress and am currently hunting for shoes and accessories to go with); so of course I treated myself to a few laps around the mall to browse my favorite stores. I didn’t end up buying anything else, but the trip felt like a mini-vacation, thanks to J.Crew’s new spring and summer arrivals in dazzling prints and bold colors.

Oh, be still my heart. The super-saturated colors in this simple, pop-over top are incredible (and yes, they’re just as lovely, if not even lovelier, in person). I love the simplicity of this top, too – simply tuck it into a pencil skirt for a more playful take on suiting. For a simple weekend look, toss it on over a pair of jeans. I can imagine this top pairing well with sleek pants and open-toed sling-backs, too. The possibilities are endless!

For those who may shy away from both large prints and bright colors, this top comes in several different prints and colors to suit your fancy. I was also drawn to the rich blues of the tile indigo pattern, seen below.

This top is so simple, so elegant, and incredibly versatile. I could see the tile indigo print working well with crisp white trousers for a summery work outfit, and just as easily work on the beach popped over your favorite bikini.

Now the question is: just how many of these can I get away with buying this season? I can’t help it!
