October Style Guide Scan

The October Style Guide left me wanting just a bit more, not gonna lie. There were obviously some fabulous pieces and some great ideas for mixing prints, but I didn’t tear out too many pages. And that’s weird for me… I tend to be a hoarder when it comes to torn-out magazine pages. Let’s focus on the positives, shall we?

Double Cloth Coat

The first page that got the cut (in a good way!) featured a fabulous oxblood leather skirt, a peachy rose top, and a bright fuchsia double-cloth coat. I want to wear this outfit every day for the rest of my life. Or just until next month’s style guide gets delivered. You get the idea.

Loved the style tip for monochromatic looks. TEXTURE, people. I’m tired of seeing boring head-to-toe looks. I love me a monochromatic outfit, but there has to be some interest. Texture is the easiest way to add some style points.

NAVY MACALISTERS. Enough said. These will be added to my shoe shelf ASAP. Navy has long been my go-to neutral and I’m loving the recent influx in navy basics.

Speaking of the Macalister… What are your thoughts on the new heel? I’m thinking I’ll stick with the classic wedge!

Overall, I’m loving J.Crew’s take on color for fall. And of course, no one does color and pattern mixing like our beloved. The color-way inter-mixing gives so many ideas of how to mix up your wardrobe this fall. Mints, cobalts, and emeralds. Pinks, oranges, and reds. Mix them up for a fresh spin on the monochromatic look!

What We’re Into Right Now

Here are a few things we’re FALLing in love with (see what I did there?)

What are some things you just won’t be able to resist this fall?

Style Crush: Gwyneth Paltrow

People magazine recently named Gwyneth Paltrow the best-dressed woman in the entire world. And it’s no wonder, our Gwyneth adores J. Crew as much as we do!

The JCR girls are always delighted when Gwyneth graces our inboxes with her regular goop newsletter (if you don’t get goop, you absolutely must. Sign up here). But this week, this week was a very special occasion. You see, J. Crew partnered with goop to give us some fantastic fall wardrobe ideas leaving us lusting for the entire Fall ’12 collection (even more so than we were already).

Back to Crew

Fall is, in my opinion, one of the most stylish seasons. With temperatures comfortable enough to layer pieces without being hidden by outerwear, you can really let your personality come through. Although it’s bittersweet to see sweaters in store windows already, back-to-school time is the best excuse to stock up for a fresh start. J.Crew’s fall arrivals started trickling in in mid-July, teasing customers with perfectly preppy looks that it’s not quite time for yet.

The most versatile must-have? A cozy cardigan in a neutral shade. Whether you layer it over a dress, pair it with a flirty blouse, or just slip it over a cami and Minnies for a comfy day in the library, you can’t go wrong!

Next, let’s talk cashmere… specifically, the cashmere Tippi sweater. With a myriad color choices (seriously, we’re talking 5 shades of pink/purple) you can easily pair this with a fun necklace to stand out and still have your professor take you seriously (I’m talking to you, tube-top-in-class girl).

What better way to show off the remnants of your bronzy summer skin than a pale pink popover? Tucked into rolled-up jeans and complemented by a neutral shoe, it’s a great casual look for running around campus. Add some stand-out earrings or switch the flats for heels to meet up with friends for dinner!

A perfect all-American look for a chilly fall day: plaid shirt, jeans, boots, and a field jacket (a vest would be great, too!). Just grab your books and a latte and you’re ready to go!

Here is another great outfit made up by three staples you can get a ton of wear from individually. If I ever have to meet with an advisor, a professor, or anyone else that I’d like to see me in a professional light, I like to dress up a little bit – but by mixing up a schoolboy blazer with a feminine top, the look is still young and fresh.

So, tell me, what’s on your list for back-to-school?
