J.Crew Factory Faves: Looks of the Season

Well, after having suffered such an icy cold winter…we are experiencing our second Winter with freezing rain and snow. At the end of April, can you believe it? Fortunately, that does not have me down! My head is still filled with spring and summer thoughts, and the best part about those two seasons is all the new styles that come out by J.Crew Factory.

Today I am rounding up some of my favourite pieces at J.Crew Factory using my favourite app Polyvore and assembling some Spring looks that I love.

Floral and Fun!

If you are keeping up with Fashion Week, style columns and recent trends, you know that floral patterns are back. This patterned drawstring pant is light, airy and perfect for a summer night. The bright coral-red top brings out the shades of light pink and really compliments the navy backdrop within the pant. With or without the jean jacket, this look is fun, casual and really simple. Not to mention the transparent tote to top it all off – completely to die for.

Bright as Bright can be

You can never go too bright. This outfit screams summer fun, doesn’t it? It is just the right amount of casual with the J.Crew chino shorts, the fun colour scheme and the casual shoe. These slip on eye-lit sneakers are perfect for going for a stroll in the park or running quick errands! I love when two pieces are just shades away in colour – the light aqua shorts paired with the sea foam green top gives it just a hint of difference in colour so that it isn’t so “matchy-matchy”, but still works completely! You can never go wrong with that!

Animal Motifs Continue 

J.Crew Factory is famous for their motif sweaters. From dogs to cats to boats to whatever item they can think of, it is on a sweater. I have a sweater with a giant red apple on it (one of my favourites). There is nothing like this cute little crab sweater to kick off the summer. Kind of goes with the whole “beach motif”! My favourite thing about this look is how the emphasis in colour is focused in the shorts. I tried to keep the rest of the outfit muted in earthy tones (tan, blue, golds, etc.) and then really make the shorts stand out.

Sweet and Simple 

This is the simplest, classic look I know how to put together. Simple top, J.Crew Oxford shorts and flats with a cute tote. If you wanted to keep this look super casual, you could ditch the jewellery, but even if you wanted to keep the jewellery, it would still be a pretty simple look. The flats are the best part about this outfit, because they are floral. The floral (same pattern used in the first ensemble) is really accentuated by the coral-red shorts.

Cool and Chic 

When it comes to wearing hats, the most important thing is to be confident. I always struggled with wearing hats because I didn’t think I was a “hat person”. Once I began to incorporate a hat as an accessory, I became addicted. The pattern mixing in this outfit is great! You have a big pattern on the bottom (floral) and a tighter pattern on the top (thin stripes). The floral is more dominant, therefore they compliment each other. In order to keep your look balanced, make sure that one pattern is more dominant than the other.

Although these looks were created with J.Crew Factory items, you can apply these tips with other retailers. I find that Old Navy and Banana Republic do a great job in providing the same types of items as J.Crew for a significantly cheaper amount. Not to mention, Winners is also an amazing alternative where you can find similar pieces!! The trick is to keep your eye out for new styles and great deals!!

Happy Shopping!
