Stripes on Stripes

The new arrivals at J.Crew will get you excited about J.Crew again. From simple but stunning accessories like my stripe scarf to standout sandals, there’s something for everyone in the latest rollout.

With my VIP coupon in hand, I stopped by my local store to check out a few particular items. I wanted to try on the washed cotton trench coat, which had the color and drapey fit I’m looking for. I passed on it for now, though, because it’s unlined. I tried on the Sunday slim chinos because I loved the beautiful lilac color, but they weren’t the best fit for my pear shape. I wanted to try on the colorblock sandals and striped sandals, but my stores rarely get shoes and didn’t have them.

Here’s what I did get.

What I’m wearing:

Tee: J.Crew

Scarf: J.Crew

Pants: Forever 21 (few left, try similar F21 style for $15.90)

Shoes: Kate Spade Saturday (similar)

Clutch: Loeffler Randall (on sale)

Earrings: Kendra Scott

Rings: Kendra Scott, ℅ Collections by Joya

Watch: Movado (Skagen option)

Lip: Mac “Fashion Legacy” liquid lipcolourMac “Brick” lip pencil

You can’t go wrong with stripes, especially a striped fringe scarf, right? The color and print combination made this scarf a must-have for me. I envision it adding the perfect pop of interest to all kinds of looks. In today’s look, the scarf takes a classic striped boatneck t-shirt from cool to fun and fabulous.

To make the classic look even more fun, I tossed in an additional print with my pebble dot Loeffler Randal clutch (now 65% off). My Collections by Joya rings add colorful touches with amethyst, labradorite, and prehnite stones.

This is what I wore to brunch on Sunday. See this look out at brunch and another fun stripe mix with the same scarf and tee over on my Instagram.

    Love the clashing stripes in your outfit. Such a cute styling idea. I haven't been too crazy about J.Crew for a while so I'd better check out what they have in store! Love your outfit.

      It's funny that you that. I haven't been excited about J.Crew for a while either. This latest rollout, though, restored my interest in the brand.
