What to Buy at J. Crew

What to Buy at J. Crew

Right now is a great time to shop at J.Crew.

They have a full assortment of inventory and fantastic options for spring and summer. And as this post is being published, most of their regular priced items are 25 – 50% off with the code SUNNY. 

This season, J.Crew has a gorgeous selection of colors, with updated basics and better fabrics in timeless cuts. 

What I really appreciate is there options within styles. For examples, you can get their staple shorts in any length in all sizes. 

They are leaning into classic American style, ideal for summer weekends. 

And their incredible range of inclusive sizes makes my job a little easier. They offer “regular,” petite, and tall, with sizes starting at 00 to 3X.

Hi Megan, I purchased the cashmere wrap this Christmas. I’ve always washed my cashmere ( cold water and lay flat to dry) from J.Crew and other companies, so I didn’t think twice about washing this wrap. It shrunk by 50% and no amount of stretching has brought it back to its original size. If anyone purchases, be sure to dry clean to keep the original shape. I’ve decided that Naadam is better for cashmere than J.Crew. I feel their quality has declined over the past 5-7 years and I’ve been a J.Crew fan since the late 80’s.

@ Megan, I'm looking for one basic black blazer to add to my wardrobe. Of all the ones you have recommended which would be your top choice? I tried the Madewell and not a fan of the double breasted for my shape.
