J.Crew describes this top as the following:
Our ruffle fixation lives on with this flouncy silk-ribbon-trimmed tank. Rows of horizontal ruffles (some bedecked with sequins) cover the front with a few wrapping around the back bottom hem for added interest. Lightweight, bias-cut cotton with a very soft wash.I really did not pay any serious attention to this top when I first saw it on the hanger in a local brick & mortar (B&M) store. However, I couldn't help but fall in love when I noticed the "soft graphite" version under a simple black cardigan on a mannequin.
I ended up going with the Black version, as I thought it would be more versatile. (I can easily see the black version working from day to night easily, as it doesn't come off as a tee necessarily. The soft graphite and ivory on the other hand, do appear like a tee with sequins. Not a bad thing as they are both very pretty tops. But something to consider.)
The scoopneck tank is super light but not to the point where it becomes see-through. It is also very comfortable to wear. I would also recommend going with your normal size (as it's true-to-size).
The sequins on the tee are just the right amount— they are not everywhere so it doesn't overwhelm you & they have just the right amount of sparkle.
As for the ruffles, they are a delightful touch on the front & sides. Although there is some bulk from the ruffles, they are easily brought back to shape with a simple cardigan. I should add that there are only one or two minimal ruffle rows wrapping the bottom of the back. It's actually great that the back has minimal ruffles— it doesn't add any more bulk.
I would definitely recommend this top for those JCAs who are considering it. It's a great piece I can't wait to use with my cardigans! :)
