J.Crew Autumn 2015: Cue Your Inner-Fashion-Girl Freakout
J.Crew is not the place it was when my mum first took me there in grade school, and the Autumn 2015 lineup is maybe the surest proof of its evolution as a fashion girl's brand, not a place to buy a sturdy boot or staple Winter jacket. Sure, you could find those there, but that's not what Jenna Lyons is hoping you'll come for — or stay for.
This season's offerings prove even more so that the label is a fashion-forward one, delivering bright pops of furry marigold trimmings, fringed skirts, sandals with floral appliqués, and a jumpsuit/blazer one-piece that looks as if it was plucked right from Jenna's closet. Gone, too, is the simple, everyday work wear, and in its place, slouchy, luxuriously wide trousers and an embellished shell. Take that to the office! — Lyons seems to dare her shoppers. Or, when you wear your denim, mix it up with a fur stole and a smattering of sequins. And who can argue with her brilliant layers, colour play, or artful accessories? We certainly won't.
