Tissue Rolling Ruffles Tank

   I loved seeing Lauren Hutton model in the latest J. Crew catalog.  As soon as I got it I bookmarked this look below.  The ruffle tanks in dark charcoal (and slate) arrived a few weeks ago & are now sold out, and the first Merino Crewneck Cardigan in Dark Charcoal that I ordered had a minor flaw and had to be returned.  
Did you know that if you order something from J Crew and you find that you need a different size /or  it has a minor flaw then all you have to do is call and they will resend the item to you with complimentary shipping?  
The replacement sweater finally arrived today.  So, here she is-- the lovely Ms. Hutton--my muse for this look!  Below is my attempt to recreate it (although I didn't like the blue capris with this look, so I substituted medium-dark jeans).
Her sweater falls a bit lower than her tank.  Maybe I should order the next size up??  Hmmm.
  Do you like the rolling ruffles tank?  Is it a keeper or not so much?

I like that ruffle tank top. I think it adds some depth and dimension to the sweater. Enjoy!

Yes on the ruffle tank! So you would buy your sweater a size larger?? I think yours looks darling as is, but I am sure the larger size would be darling on you, too!! Love j. Crew and Lauren Hutton. I have always loved her!! She looks fab and honestly it doesn't look like she has had any "work" done on her face, does it?? xoox

I love this look on you! So sad that it's sold out in my size. Great idea to make this out of a twin set with the crew neck merino!

It’s a very clean, chic, & fun statement. Ruffles are sometimes too cutesy but not in this case. I would definitely be sporting this look to a luncheon. Beautiful necklace!!! You look stunning. I hope that I age as gracefully as Lauren Hutton, she has style.
