My affinity for J.Crew has ebbed and flowed over the years, but this season I’m crushing hard. And they’re having a huge sale at the moment! Pretty much everything in the store (and online) is 30-50% off!!! Here are my top mix-and-match picks…
Martie Pant in Bi-Stretch Wool – Very Audrey Hepburn chic. These pants are a great length for pairing with flats or heels, the cut is super flattering, and the fabric is a medium weight for all season wearability. The only con is that they run small, so be prepared to size up one or (gulp) two sizes. I already own a pair in black, and I’m planning to buy the gray as soon as they restock in my size!
Holiday Party Top in Sequin – Simply beautiful. Incredible blush pink top. Sport it under a blazer, flaunt it with a pencil skirt, run errands with it in boyfriend jeans, and take it into summer with white short-shorts. You need this top. I found my regular size fit okay, but one size down transformed the fit to uber-flattering. Love.
Contrast Floral Lace Skirt – A surprisingly versatile skirt. Pair it with a cashmere sweater and flats for work, or a silk cami and heels for a hot date. The skirt hits just past the knees and is sophisticated chic and feminine flirty all at the same time. WARNING: You may be tempted to size down, but don’t take it too far. The skirt is meant to have a bit of pleating all the way around. When you try it on examine the rear-view and make sure it’s not laying too flat across the bum. If it is, go one size up. I bought my normal size.
Powder Crystal Necklace – Hello lovely! This necklace looks smashing paired with the blush pink sequin dress and/or top; but let’s be honest… it looks pretty good with a gray t-shirt and jeans too.
Open Cardigan Sweater – This sweater feels so cozy and luxe. I went with the Heather Pewter color. For some reason it just looked more elegant and versatile to me. I live in Northern California where sweaters are a must most of the year, and I anticipate this will be a favorite go-to.
Cap-Sleeve Sequin Dress – Can’t quit the sparkle. Looking for a holiday party dress, some NYE sparkle, and/or a Valentine’s date dress? This dress can do it all. Beautiful color, super comfy, and hella sparkly (but in a classy way); and at a reasonable price point too!
Collection Classic Turtleneck Sweater in Cashmere – A cashmere basic. Soft, cozy, and well cut. I’ve owned MANY cashmere sweaters from J.Crew over the years, but my cashmere turtlenecks in black and heather flax have been wardrobe staples. This is a need.
Carrie Cami in Floral Lace – Another super versatile piece. This cami pairs just as well with boyfriend jeans as it does the sleek Martie pant referenced above. And simply add a blazer and it becomes office friendly.
Embellished Tippi in Glen Plaid – A fun seasonal sweater. I love this bedazzled piece. The colors lend themselves to easy mixing and matching, and there’s just enough sparkle to make it pop.
