The Best Of NYFW: J. Crew Loosens Up

Nearly every day I’m wearing something on my person that came from J. Crew. I am a disciple; an unofficial, uncompensated walking advertisement; a diehard fan of their toothpick jeans, Capri flip-flops, Everly pumps and assorted overpriced sweatshirts that I refuse to buy unless they’re on sale. And come spring, I will no doubt be adding at least a handful of the items shown as part of the brand’s NYFW collection. Spoiler alert: Tight, constricting fabrics and silhouettes are out, and baggy — baggy shorts, baggy shirts, baggy jackets — are IN.

NYFW Fall 2014: J. Crew Collection, Mara Hoffman, Carolina Herrera, Thom Browne & More

It’s that time of year again! That is, time for the the human clothing hangers better known as models to strut down the catwalks of Lincoln Center in beautiful, expensive and sometimes absurd designer clothing, for the Fall 2014 runway shows. Each day, we’ll present to you a selection of noteworthy shows so that, even if you can’t ultimately afford what you see (uh, we can’t), you’ll be up to date on the coming trends. Or at least have plenty of outfits, makeup and hair looks to drool over and/or laugh at. After the jump, the latest looks from J. Crew Collection, Mara Hoffman, and the weird and wacky Thom Browne… Keep reading »

$750 jcrew sequin wedding romper

Most people feel less conflicted about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan than they do about buying anything, anything at J.Crew. The land of the $49.50 T-shirt is a land most of us can only afford to visit — if we can even control our rageface at their excruciatingly painful combination of cute clothes and obscene prices. If your blood pressure is a little wonky, don’t continue reading: the J.Crew bridal department is now selling a $750 sequined romper. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a gorgeous white sequined romper that would look hella cute at a wedding after-party.  But SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS. That’s practically one month of my rent. For a romper. A bridal romper. A dry-clean only bridal romper. As if peeing in your wedding dress isn’t difficult enough! Sit with that for a minute. (P.S.  J.Crew Factory 4 Eva!) [J.Crew]

Let J. Crew’s Pixie put the leggings as pants controversy to rest — leggings CAN be worn as pants when they’re as sleek, thick, slimming and comfy as these. Despite being a J. Crew enthusiast (seriously, I am often dressed like an unpaid and less perfect J. Crew model), I didn’t become aware of the Pixie Pants’ magical powers until recently, when I complimented a number of fashion-y ladies on their leggings looking decidedly inoffensive when worn solo with buttondowns and sweaters. “Oh, these are not your normal leggings,” they each said in some way or another. “They’re Pixie Pants! From J. Crew!” The difference is that these leggings have a zipper in the back and are made from thicker material than the usual stretch jersey. They’re incredibly slimming and warm and are totally opaque. Seriously, these are the chicest leggings you could ever own. It’s only right to wear them as pants. [$88, J. Crew]
