Get your prep on with J. Crew's new arrivals.
Things have been a little rocky for J. Crew recently. Your favorite preppy-cool brand has struggled in recent years with a crisis of identity. When Kylie Jenner and the Instagram crowd are leading fashion trends, where does a brightly-colored, gingham-obsessed heritage brand go? Well, after trying to shake up their image a bit, Jenna Lyons & Co. have truly embraced the preppiness of J. Crew, and it has paid off.
Now that J. Crew isn't trying to be something it's not, it's unveiling some truly fun clothing that will keep you looking stylish all summer long. From off-the-shoulder tops to trendy rainbow stripes, these pieces are for the girls who love color and aren't afraid of standing out from the crowd.
And because there are so many great new items, I've styled seven outfits for a number of summer occasions, so you can literally wear nothing but J. Crew all summer long!
Casual Weekend Brunch
I saw this iridescent clutch at The Grove a few weeks back and fell in love. Any accessory that could potentially blind people due to sheer shininess is an accessory I want to have. Because the clutch is such a standout piece, let it do the talking and pair it with a comfy T-shirt dress and trendy flatform espadrilles. Add a pair of sparkly earrings for some extra bling and you've got the perfect weekend brunch look.
Who says you can't incorporate the whole rainbow into your workday wardrobe? This technicolor-striped top is so fun for work and play (wear it unbuttoned for a sassy beach coverup), so let it do the talking and pair with muted neutrals. Draw out some of the fun color in your accessories, like your shoes and your lipstick color and pull your hair into a J. Crew catalogue-worthy messy bun for the perfect 9 to 5 look.
I love the laid-back look that is vintage-style jeans paired with fun heels. The Roxie pumps come in a neat print with the perfect pop of color, so draw that out in a simple but brightly-colored silk camisole. Fringe earrings and a woven clutch add just the right amount of flirtatiousness for an evening of fruity cocktails in a trendy bar downtown.
J. Crew has a way of making unexpected color combinations work, so why not try lemon and raspberry? This gorgeous lace dress is perfect for a summer wedding, and this super fun necklace would bring the perfect amount of bling to the neckline. And I mean, come on, who can resist a good summer gingham?
