J.Crew is not the place it was when my mom first took me there in grade school, and the Fall 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, color play, or artful accessories? We certainly won't.
So I seriously love all the rich colors I am seeing so far. The deep purples to the bright yellows... yes, yes, yes! The scarves are all amazing. The sequin skirt is gorgeous!!! I can't wait to get my hands on them all. I mean, there is the random WTF? item-- I am talking to you one-piece blazer and muppet lined jacket?!? But overall, I am impressed.
What are your thoughts on the upcoming collection? Are there any pieces you are super excited about? Does your local store carry any of the new arrivals yet? If so, please share!
