Happy Holiday Shopping Season! ~ J.Crew Gift Ideas

Black-Friday-JCrew-Sales

It’s here (whether we’re ready or not)! In an effort to avoid shopping malls and make the holiday shopping experience as painless as possible, we’ve decided to organize a series of Gift Guides (at every price point) plus roundups of the best sales + deals at your favorite retailers.

We’ll kick things off with one of our all-time favorites, J.Crew.

If you live in a frigid climate like me, you’re likely looking for a cozy new coat with a feminine fit. Take advantage of holiday sales (Black Friday + Cyber Monday, in particular) to treat yourself to a new winter coat (or point Santa in this direction…)

The Chateau Parka

The Chateau Parka comes in six luxurious colors and is made from J.Crew’s exclusive stadium-cloth wool (from Italy’s Nello Gori mill).

I’ve also been a long-time fan of the J.Crew Stadium-Cloth Cocoon Coat.

And you really can’t go wrong with the Classic Majesty Peacoat. I love the way the gold buttons pop on the navy version.

This season, you can have some fun with saturated hues like Turquoise, Golden Sun, and Neon Electric Flame.

If you’re shopping for a little crewcut, the Girls’ stadium-cloth peacoat with furry collar is as cute as can be!

Need some boots, too? Get them at J.Crew (but hurry, these sell out quickly)!

If you’re in the market for some under $50 gift options, we recommend:

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?
