I totally agree. That said, I have completely fallen for this style and wear them anyway. Tights are the answer for Fall. But what about next Spring? J. Crew! Please create a longer version called the "Julia" right away!
@lori972 -- You could do tights, leggings or jeggings under it I think for sure. Though the tights would be pushing it for me, unless going out. LOVE the color too, I agree. My PS said there's a lot of hem that can be let down, and she was doing that for a lot of customers. I thought about it, but in the end went with a Boden popback in a similar colort that is lovely and much cheaper!
