JCA "Help Style Me!" Weekly Post

This is the weekly "Help Style Me!" post, where we can share items we are having trouble putting outfits together with. Elaine (in this post) says it best, "You know, that thing you bought because you love it and you keep pulling it out and then putting it away without wearing it?"

Please share your J.Crew item (either that you own or are thinking about getting) that you would love help creating an outfit with.

Also, please help out by offering your styling advice. Feel free to include links to your blog (where you incorporated that piece) or to Polyvore (where you showcased an outfit with that piece). Thanks in advance! :)


  1. I have the postcard print linen halter dress from several years ago. I still love the print, but find I rarely wear the dress as it's very low cut. Any ideas on how I could "fill in" the neckline so that it would be less revealing?

    1. You could find some material in a solid color that was complementary and sew it in in place.

    2. shopgrrrl, how about a pretty camisole, with a little lace covering your decolletage? Or a good tailor?

    3. If you're working with halter straps, you might look at a bandeau. I like Luxette's idea of having some material sewn in place. Good luck :)

    4. I'm not familiar with the dress, but maybe you could mine some material from the hem of the dress to place at the neckline?

  2. I usually use a cami or tank top to solve this kind of problem. I've also found a bra with lace that goes straight across, so the lace peaks out a bit and fills in the space that is too revealing for me.

  3. High Quality Silk Screened T-Shirts - Shipped Daily
