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

JCrew-Review-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).
JCrew-Chateau-Parka-Colors

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

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

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)!
