When J.Crew’s Creative Director Jenna Lyons wore this striped Vintage bateau top ($36) on Oprah last month, we knew it would be our summer go-to. Sadly, the top isn’t expected to ship until August 23, and because our wardrobe can’t wait three months, we scoured the web for a suitable alternative and found this:
This Gap Body Nautical Tunic Top ($39.50) comes in olive green (above), coral, and blue, and is very versatile. You can wear it with skinny jeans, shorts, or even as a swimsuit cover-up while you lounge. The top has a bit of stretch and it’s thin enough to tuck into a pair of jeans or skirt without adding on too much volume. We’re getting it in every color.
