5 Style Lessons We can All Learn from J. Crew


We have always adored everything J. Crew, and now it’s time to learn the method to their madness. Preppy prints and cleverly adorned basics are everywhere, but J. Crew’s iterations are timeless, effortless and well, just perfect. Here, the five style lessons that every gal can glean from J. Crew.

5 style lessons we can all learn from J. Crew

1. Chambray shirts will set you free.

Chambray Shirts

These shirts should be a staple in everyone’s closet. Great for layering or just on their own, chambray shirts can dress up or dress down any ensemble.

2. Jewelry is like coffee, the bolder the better

Bold Jewelry When we think of statement jewelry, we always think J. Crew. Want to take a cable knit sweater up a notch? Throw on your boldest of necklaces.

3. Cigarettes = Bad, Cigarette Pants = Good

Cigarette Pants

We all know cigarettes are bad for us, but cigarette pants are key to every healthy wardrobe. Black cigarette pants go with absolutely everything, but take note from J. Crew and opt for the ones with a bold pattern.

4. When slouchy meets tailored, beautiful things can happen

Slouchy Meets Tailored

This is a very tough concept for some of us to pull off, but J. Crew does it seamlessly every time. Plus, what gal doesn’t want to add a comfy element to her work getup?

5. Pattern on pattern is your friend

Pattern on Pattern

Our editors will forever and always love polka dot and striped prints, but who’s to say one can’t have both? J. Crew is our style icon when it comes to working with pattern on pattern looks, and it doesn’t have to stop as dots and stripes. Pattern choices are endless, but it’s up to you to make it as tasteful as can be.
