Weekly Share: Other JCrew-like Retailers

This is the weekly "Other JCrew-like Retailers" post (similar to the "Off On A Tangent" posts), where we can share our finds from other retailers that have offerings similar to J.Crew (like Anthropologie, LE Canvas, Gap, BR, Talbots, Ann Taylor, and the like.)

If you have recently encountered items that are similar to J.Crew, maybe you might be willing to share that information with us in this post.

Please feel free to share your story on almost any topic— including experiences with certain merchandise pieces, promotions/ offers, in-store visits, transactions with store associates, etc.

  1. Old Navy has some great lightweight boho floral tops. I have only seen a couple of these in person but I really liked what I saw and am so tempted by some of the other options online. Normally am not a fan of rayon but their rayon fabric I've seen this season seems better than past ON rayon fabrics IMO. Still concerned about shrinking however.

  2. Talbots new rollout was fabulous. So many cute things, I could hardly restrain myself. 30% off too. Great styles, colors and reminds me of what J Crew used to be like.

    1. Just got the catalog and I agree! Happy, bright and joyful. I ordered a few things w the 30% off - two skirts and a dress.

  3. I just placed a large order with Talbots as well and I placed a large order with Boden the other day. I won’t keep everything because I bought multiple sizes. I find JCrew’s dress offerings completely uninspiring so I’m branching out and trying others.

  4. If you love Boden they have released their early fall preview at bodenpreview.com. I know some may have no interest in seeing fall since we’re barely into spring but I love looking ahead to see the trends. Looks very feminine, a little 70s, and so many cute things.

    1. Thanks! I live in an area with a short summer so I always like looking ahead to fall offerings. There a number of promising items for my wishlist: ROSIE TWEED DRESS, BRITISH TWEED CULOTTE, and ROSAMUND KITTEN HEELS.

    3. Speaking of Boden, I just received a spring one button coat in bright green. It has pink on the reversible back belt, and the collar lining . It's on the clearance page at $120, comes in four colors. Adorable coat, tailoring is very good. The sleeves do run long, so it's a great choice for taller women, or get a petite. I'm a 6 in the Parke topcoat at J. Crew and an 8 at Boden. Definitely a slimming cut, and a classic style that will give years of wear. Fully lined. The bright colors are great! And there is a navy option for the less adventurous.
