Usually, I'm not much of a J. Crew shopper. Though I appreciate how durable their clothing is, I tend to find it way too fresh-from-Martha's-Vineyard for my taste.
In recent years, however, I've noticed J. Crew trying to up the style quotient and come up with trendier, eye-catching styles. Some examples:
This peppy yellow 'Globe Trotter' Centenary vanity case (above) is adorable.
I loved this beaded 'Glisse' cami and this is something I'd definitely buy and wear, frequently, especially with jeans and topped with a shrug or blazer.
Very cute little pintuck dress. Terrific for summer. I'd cinch it with a colorful little belt.
