When that catalog comes in the mail, or when that ultra-cool style blogger shows her #OOTD, it totally strikes: The J. Crew Envy Attack. But which are the items we can actually afford and we will truly wear day after day?
We’ve got your back.
Here are our top 10 picks from J Crew for fall 2014. We have kept them accessible, affordable and versatile, but also unique and beautiful…just like you.
1. Toothpick Japanese Selvedge Jean
In a sea of premium denim choices, this special edition of the J. Crew Toothpick stands out. Super lean and slightly cropped to show off your shoes, it is made from authentic selvedge denim (the highest quality of denim craftsmanship) woven on looms from Japan.
2. Keating Boy Blazer
The absolutely, positively most perfectly flattering blazer. Throw it on and look instantly French and chic. We love the classic navy, but it also comes in black, camel and kelly green.
3. Tipped Ponte Dress
Deep currant/burgundy/oxblood (aka dark red, no matter what you call it) is superduper hot this fall, especially in dresses. The A-line cut will look fab on every body type, and its simplicity allows you to wear it for work, evening or play.
4. Four Square Scarf
A polished and professional look are easily attainable when you tie on this graphic silk scarf. It is also the perfect accompaniment to a simple tee and jeans.
5. Suede D’Orsay Pumps
The d’Orsay was big this spring and is still going strong in fall. It is a seriously sexy shoe, with a heel height you can wear all day. Oh, and J. Crew’s Factory line now offers an affordable alternative to the d’Orsay on the main J. Crew site. Prayers? Answered.
6. Classic Fedora with Grosgrain Ribbon
When temps drop, skip that ratty knit cap and upgrade to this menswear-inspired fedora. Be sure to pre-order before they are all gone.
7. Cropped Sweatshirt
The color white is white hot this fall and winter, and the luxe sweatshirt trend is still going strong. The architectural cut of this one makes it look like you spent a fortune.
8. Trapeze Pendant Necklace
All the It Girls are swapping their chunky statement collars for cool pendant necklaces. This crystal and brass number looks simultaneously vintage and modern.
9. Leather Envelope Clutch
“Look at it, I bet you wishing you could clutch that.” Yes, this leather clutch purse is just the way we like it.
10. Side Slit Tunic
Obsessed with achieving the perfect half, full, back and front tucks with your tops? This crazy-cool side slit tunic gives you on-point styling and loads of options.
