Good, but it could be better
PostedDecember 3, 2016
For those of us who hate beanies and other head-tight gear in winter, this is a good alternative. However, if you have a small head, the hat risks being a tad too big (an adjustable band inside would have been great.) Solution? Use one of those infinity scarves, wrap one half around the hat and the other around your neck, and voila! The hat is cute and classy, but I would have liked the felt to be treated to make it sturdier and somewhat water resistant, as it might get ruined if the hat is exposed to heavy snow. Nevertheless, at the sale price, it is a very good deal!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Our soft jacquard-knit infinity scarf is cozy and warm. A mix of yarns, stitches, patterns and colors gives it a textured patchwork look.

Warm, thick, versatile, and a steal at the sale price!
PostedNovember 26, 2016
Wow. I am surprised to see these have not disappeared yet! These scarves are a steal at the sale price. They are so warm that it feels like there was a little bit of wool content in them. They are also wide and thick to the point that I can wear mine as a small shawl on my shoulders while working at my chilly office. I can also wrap it on top of my fedora hat to avoid it being blown away by the wind. The three colors (blue, red, black) cover most of my wardrobe items; I wear them almost daily. I had originally bought them as gifts, but liked them so much that I kept them for me, and I am now going to get some more as stocking stuffers. On of the best purchases from JJill!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Beautiful pattern. Medium weight and good quality silk...

...However, a little bit short, and pricey, even on sale. But a small splurge in a gift to ourselves now and then in return for all we do will not hurt anyone. Plus, it makes us look and feel great! ;-)

Not enough shape, kind of frumpy
PostedOctober 25, 2016
I liked this tunic so much, particularly the side snap closure details, that I waited until it was available on sale and in my size. I just got it and I really wanted to love it. However, it runs large, and makes me look pregnant and kind of sloppy. Somehow, the picture shows a more fitted garment, and not a sack of potatoes. I tried it with a belt, with leggings, with different necklaces, and nothing would improve the fit, so sadly it goes back. For the price, I think JJill could have done better.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Pretty but pricey
PostedOctober 22, 2016
This skirt is extremely comfortable and it matches almost any color (except black, I would say). I am usually an M petite, but an S was a good fit for me in this model. The cotton fabric is light but drapes well. Pockets are a plus, and I would do away with the waist cord, but it is not a big deal. Maybe worth on sale, but expensive for what it is at regular price.

An OK fall sweater
PostedOctober 3, 2016
Because this is an item from last year's Fall catalog, it is of a heavier material than what is being sold this year. Just that, IMO, is a plus. The sale price is another. It is true to size and has a nice fit, but I did not find it as soft as other customers did. For me, it is just an OK, nice sweater for fall. I wish JJill would go back to making thicker garments for this season and stop the trend towards paper thin clothing. Less synthetic materials would also be a plus. This sweater would be great with more natural fibers in it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Extremely thin fabric
PostedOctober 3, 2016
Come on, JJill this item is part of your Fall collection. It is supposed to be of a heftier material than your summer pima t-shirts and it is not! I am getting very frustrated and disappointed by this issue of ever thinning fabrics. You should begin to add information on the website about the fabric weight so that those customers who cannot visit your stores can know exactly what we are buying. I am keeping the tunic only because I love the color and it has a good fit, but am scouring the sale section in search of fall/winter garments from last year, which were thicker, such as the front pockets turtleneck pima tunic, which unfortunately is now only available in extra small or extra large sizes.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Good cut and fresh for summer.
PostedSeptember 29, 2016
This dress already has over 70 reviews, most of them positive. so I feel there is not much else to say. It fits true to size in petites. I am 5"1', approx 145 Lbs, and the M fits very well. Hides imperfections. Nice, soothing blue/green tones. Can be paired with many JJill cardigans and/or shawls. The V neckline is not overly revealing. Does not wrinkle or show wrinkles. The only potential drawback would be that it does not have pockets. When on sale, it's a steal!

Nice but small
PostedApril 8, 2016
I own several JJill wraps, and I was expecting a size similar to those, but this one is, by far, smaller. Other than that, soft and warm, and a good addition to a winter wardrobe, but I would have never paid full price for it, taking into consideration that it is only 20% cashmere.

Overpriced, small, not well designed
PostedApril 8, 2016
The charms are pretty, but they all pile up at one extreme of the bracelet. The bracelet's size is for average wrists only; anyone with a slightly thicker wrist will find it uncomfortable. Only worth on sale and with an additional discount. Have seen much better versions of this one.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Our soft woven-silk infinity scarf with a floral print.
 

What colors are in this scarf, & what colors & their names are in this scarf, & besi the matching wearever print shirt? match this scarf?

What are names of colors in this scarf? It looks like pinks, several greens, and peaches, bellini, shrimp, or bisques go with this scarf? I assume solids would go best. What shirts would match in the (in order of length preference) XLT, W2X, XL? Thanks.
Topic:colors in scarf names?, matching shirts?, no wool alpaca etc.
Hi, the scarf has a black background; the leaves are olive and sage green; the flowers are a mix of pale pink, peach, Bellini, lobster, and berry colors; there are also white flowers. I have matched this scarf with a wide palette of pink tops, from powder pink to coral. It also looks great with beige. It makes my little black dress look stunning. It is very versatile, I have found I can mix it with many of my tops and I just don't want to take it off!

It also pairs beautifully with coral or pink, and even yellow. It is hard to find a color that will not match. Maybe just red and black.
