J.Crew Trend

The other day I decided to take a quick look through J.Crew.com expecting to see the normal crew-neck sweaters and anchor-themed prints. Instead, I came across luxurious camisoles and mod-inspired dresses all with elegant detailing.

Electric blue might not be the color of the season anymore, but this camisole seems timeless with its square neckline and understated pleating.

The collar on this yellow and white blouse is a little too Elizabethan for me, but then again, that's what gives the piece so much character. Also, the graphic print nicely offsets the ruffles.

I love the color combination on this Marimekko-inpsired dress.

Somehow the retro palette of this dress modernizes the fairly conservative cut. It would look great with slouchy, flat, brown leather boots.

Now, if only J.Crew could lower its prices by 70 percent...

I'd heard of J. Crew's newfound awesomeness, but I had no idea it was this awesome. I want the camisole and Marimekko dress!

Katie said...

seriously though, i'm with you on the lower prices! i would never buy j crew at full price- who do they think they are charging that much?!

Pmegranate, I think the fact that they don't look like they're from J.Crew is why I like them so much.

Katie, yeah, I will never understand why J.Crew hiked up its prices a few years back. It was already expensive to begin with and now its just ridiculous!
