Quite the throwback! Wearing the Lady Day Coat here, which is available in pink again. / Pearl Necklace
J.Crew is killing it this year. And today, you can take 35 percent off your purchase if you use code “FLASH.” Such a great opportunity to stock up on fall and winter staples. :) Of course, shopping a major sale can be a bit overwhelming, so I’ve put together a list of my favorites.
Big J.Crew Sale
The Regent Topcoat is SUCH a classic coat, and I’m so excited that J.Crew brought it back this year. It’s not the heaviest, but I wear it throughout fall and spring. It’s beautifully tailored and therefore extremely flattering. I went up one size in the topcoat.
I just bought these! I haven’t received them yet, but I’m pumped; they feature a cashmere liner and they’re tech gloves. I won’t lie: I normally wear ski mittens for the majority of Chicago winters. (It’s the only thing that seems to keep my fingers warm because of Raynaud’s.) I’ve been looking for a nice pair of leather glove to wear to events and dinners, though–when I’m just hopping in and out of Ubers!
The Cocoon coat, in my opinion, is J.Crew’s warmest coat. I adore it. I have it in a few colors because I love it so much. My mom and I swear by it; we’ve always said that it’s a magic coat designed for girls who can normally only stay warm in puffers. Word to the wise: it runs big. I would either order your regular size or go one size down. I usually wear a 2 in J.Crew coats and take the Cocoon in a 0… and it’s still roomy! (Though not huge.)
The Lady Day Coat! It’s back in pink, which is so fun. I wouldn’t say that this is as warm as the Cocoon Coat, but I stay toasty when temps are in the 30s and 40s.
Favorite blazer. Don’t think this is included in the sale, but it’s worth snatching up now since it sells out so quickly.
J.Crew sent me this earlier this year, and I DO wear it when I go out, as the name suggests, haha. (It’s the “Going Out” blazer.) Very polished; less preppy.
The sweater blazer is what gets me through the winter. Eventually, when it gets cold enough, I need something more substantial that my normal wool blazers. (Love them so much, but they’re no match for Chicago winters!) This number is perfectly cozy and adds a whole lot of warmth. Runs VERY BIG. Again, I take J.Crew blazers in a size 2, and I went with an XXS in the sweater blazer.
The silk shirt in leopard. Seems a little crazy for me, but I love it! It really makes a statement, and every time I wear it, I get a zillion questions.
Another staple; I wear it under everything and it makes me look like I know what I’m doing, fashion-wise. Such a great layering piece. This is the black tissue version.
