Happy Wednesday, ladies. The ‘All Things Cozy’ collection at J.Jill has been trickling into my two local stores so I’ve been back and forth several times to get this try-on session for you…and buying more than I expected:) There is more arriving every day, so let’s get started.
Most J. Jill items are available in misses, petite, womens, and tall. As always you click the red text for more info and to shop the item.
If you’re new here, welcome. A dressing room diary is when I go into a store and try on new merchandise so you can see how it looks on a woman over 25 as well as get some styling ideas. For reference, I’m 5’4″, and weigh around 136 pounds. I have an inverted triangle-shaped silhouette with broad shoulders, straight hips with very few curves. I also have a long torso and arms so often wear one size larger on top than the bottom. I can wear regular and petite garments depending on their proportions.
This stonewashed cabled sweater comes in three colors including this soft olive in misses, petite, and women, XS-XL. I am wearing a misses small. It’s 100% cotton so it’s wonderful for you ladies who can’t wear wool or cashmere. This is not long enough to wear with leggings like I am showing here but it would be great over jeans, cords, or any pants. The Pima cotton leggings come in 5 colors. They’re thick and very opaque with a high lycra content to maintain their shape. I am wearing a misses in small.
This cabled cardigan is just fabulous. It also came in an oatmeal color which appears to be sold out already! It’s a great length to wear over a skirt, dress, or pants. I am wearing a misses in small. The ponte leggings are some of my favorites. There is a front seam down the front which is very slimming and for some bizarre reason doesn’t show in my photo. They come in 4 colors, this is Beechwood in misses, small. I have to say, these are awesome leggings.
This reversible, faux shearling coat caught my attention the second I walked in the door. It’s the most gorgeous soft winter white. It comes in misses, petite, and medium. I am wearing a misses in small, which is surprisingly long on me so I would opt for the petite version, just for the sleeves. It’s really just gorgeous. I prefer it with the faux suede on the outside so I can use the pockets. Big pocket fan here:)
I love knit velour for comfortable pieces to wear at home. This is their full leg pant in licorice, which is a soft gray. It also comes in rose/taupe. I’m wearing a petite small which is too short for me and illustrates why at 5’4″, I don’t expect petite garments to always fit me. The kimono top is a petite small and the perfect length. The dropped shoulders aren’t the most flattering on my wide shoulders, but it does fit.
I love the extra-long length of their puffer vests this year. They come in 4 gorgeous colors and have a hood, how clever is that? I am wearing the small petite which fits but I ended up ordering the misses to get that little bit of extra length. I’m wearing it over this plush velour top which comes in three colors and is super soft. I am wearing a medium petite, which fits well.
These are J. Jill’s classic slim-fit jeans which come in 5 colors, 02-18. I am wearing a 4 petite which is snug and a bit too short for my legs so I would choose the misses in 6, and hem if needed. This time of year, I like my ankle pants to actually cover my ankles, for warmth.
This velvet boatneck top comes in this deep olive or black. It gives a great “dressed up” look in a machine-washable velvet that’s great for casual holidays. I’m wearing a small petite. On the left, I’m wearing it over Pima cotton leggings, and on the right, over velveteen stretch high-rise jeans which are a simple way to step up your everyday look during the holidays.
I would prefer this top in the regular length over leggings, but I do like this petite length over the jeans. As you know, it’s all about proportion and ‘coverage’ for me with leggings:)

This reversible down/sherpa puffer coat is really nice. The website says it runs small, but it didn’t on me. I am wearing a misses in small and it fits exactly as I would expect. It has a relaxed fit with room for layering. It’s a deep navy with patch pockets on the quilted side and side pockets on the sherpa side.
I’m wearing it with these high-rise straight jeans in the laguna wash that fit beautifully. They also come in a soft gray that would be pretty for total outfits. I am wearing a 6 petite and love that they’re covering my ankles:)
J. Jill makes some of the most gorgeous scarves and this collection is no exception. This beaded jacquard scarf is in shades of rose, taupe, soft blue, and pale gray. It’s 70″ long and 27″ wide so you could easily wear it wrapped around your shoulders too.
The Pure Jill Long Shacket is a gorgeous soft plum they call Bayberry. It’s got a fleece-like texture so feels really cozy. I am wearing a misses small. The velour leggings are the same soft gray as the wider pants shown above and also come in black violet which has a purple cast to them. I’m wearing a misses small, and you can see the legs are a touch long on me.
The vegan leather pull-on pants come in two colors, misses, petite, women’s, and tall in XS-XL. I am wearing a petite in small. These fit like pants rather than leggings so they aren’t skin tight which is a nice change. I’m a huge fan of chenille and cables so this cozy sweater really rang my bell. It’s also got a tweed effect to the yarn, much like the yarn I used to knit with. I am wearing a misses small.
Here I am last weekend, wearing my puffer vest which I bought in the spruce color. It happens to coordinate perfectly with my Black Watch Tartan Scarf from Talbots and these beautiful navy cashmere gloves from Black. They are a super lustrous cashmere, made in Scotland and the ultimate luxury for chilly hands. They’d also make a great holiday gift.
