This week we’ve hit the JCrew dressing room once again to bring you the very latest finds. We’ve sifted through the items we think are best suited for our age and stage of life. We’ve given you casual items as well as clothing that can be worn to work. What we like most about JCrew is the versatility. Any item can easily be dressed up or down and we like clothing that gives wardrobes staying power! Here we go!
Lightweight Cardigan, and floral top (in store only) with Jeans. The length of the cardigan is great. It hits right at the waist line and we like it paired with longer tops. The buttons are also more of a statement on this sweater and give it a bit of a pop. It comes in six different colours and is a great weight for summer. The ruffle tank has a V-neck that doesn’t come too low and the detail around the collar is feminine without being too frilly or fussy. (code for you won’t have to iron too much) I really liked the jeans because they were very soft and didn’t really feel like jeans at all.
Popover floral top (in store only) with White Jean. Denise also fell in love with the distressed white jeans – they are so comfortable and have the perfect amount of distressing in just the right spots. They also have a stretch to them and come up a bit higher on the waist. There are just so many wins with these! We didn’t think we would like the floral top so much but with the white jeans to anchor the print – we really liked it!
Ruffle Sweater and High Rise Jean. This sweater makes a statement and it also runs a bit big so I sized down. (wearing a xs) The fabric is thicker and has a stretch to it. The cut is straight and it won’t hug any curves – more of a boxy fit. That being said, it goes great with high-rise jeans and what’s better than navy and white – especially in summer.
Linen Shirt (tall) with the Maddie Pant. Everyone gave me a strange look when I pulled a pair of bright blue pants off the rack. This is one of my favourite colours and hey, bottoms up right! We all really liked them! The fit is very flattering, they run true to size and would be a great investment for work. I do own these pants in navy blue and used them regularly in a past career. They are your basic career workhorse but a bit more exciting in the bright blue. Think of them as a summer fling, you’ll enjoy them for a few months and look forward to them again when the snow melts. I love this white shirt, I’m wearing a size 4 here but need a 6… just too lazy to grab the right size. It also comes in petite and tall online! I love this about JCrew!
Blue Linen Shirt with Skirt. This is the same linen shirt, just in a different colour and it’s equally as smashing! It’s a great summer staple and we think it would look great – untucked with a pair of jeans and sandals. It just one of those items you can get loads of mileage out of because it’s so versatile. As for the skirt, it’s a lined linen with a rickrack green hem that’s pretty adorable. We love the length and even did a quick sit down test to make sure it didn’t come up around your neck. It didn’t! You’ll be good as gold.! It’s also not going to wrinkle too easily because of the heavier lining.
