Fall Fashion: J. Crew Necklace Tees

I get a lot of friends asking me to help them accessorize a simple outfit. And, for any other ladies relating to this predicament, there are some helpful shirts. J. Crew is carrying some lovely shirts that are embroidered and have crystals hanging from them, taking away time that would be spent on deciding what necklace to wear. These necklace tee shirts have enough spunk that you can avoid accessorizing alltogether. Sometimes making more decisions is too difficult after a long day. I’m here to tell you, you can rely on J.Crew’s beautifully delicate shirts to take the guess work out of accessorizing, and guarantee an adorable looking you! J.Crew’s necklace tees are casual enough to wear out to a movie, and can be appropriate under a blazer. These shirts are anything but boring, and nail the look to the T.

Nailing the look is a great way to describe the Slub Cotton Crystal Necklace Tee. It’s a casual tee with small to large crystals around the V-neckline of the tee that embellish the t-shirt beautifully. The shirt comes in light pewter and ivory-- both very soft feminine colors that go well with the heavy pattern. This shirt will come in very handy for the fall, especially with a bomber jacket and every other fall fashion worthy item.

This next tee is adorable! It actually looks like there’s a necklace attached to the shirt with a tie ribbon around the back. The Textured Jersey Ribboned Collier Tee is a scoop neck with a lot to look up to. It’s got an intricate beading and sequence design around the neck that comes down chandelier style. The combination of cotton and such an elaborate design off sets the look. This shirt also goes along with this fall's combination of luxury and casual for a spin on previous years.

For those who accessorize less, there is the toned down version of the necklace tee. J.Crew’s Scoop Neck Corsage Tee is a soft cotton tee, made extra delicate with its fine ribs and small trail of flowers over one side. It’s definitely something you don’t want to cover up with a jacket.

The final necklace tee is phenomenal, but pricey. If you can afford to splurge on this Tissue Stone Necklace Tee, I would. It’s an unbelievably stunning shirt! I never thought I’d say that about a t-shirt butI am! The shirt has big stones surrounded by rhinestones. I don’t think I’d even notice a huge pimple on a girl’s forehead if she wore this shirt around me.
