Ships Ahoy! J. Crew Nautical Necessities

Whether you are sailing the Atlantic, lounging by the pool, or catching a baseball game with friends, nautical attire is always appropriate. Anchors, stripes and ship wheels have long been a summertime staple when it comes to casual dressing. Learn to embrace the theme with the help of J.Crew’s talented team who expertly crafts a boat-friendly collection year after year.

This season, standout items are all about the anchor. From a charm bracelet, to a scoop-neck blouse or comfortable T-shirt dress, anchors are a coveted symbol that certainly makes a statement, in a modest way in comparison to other loud symbols.

Investment Pieces // Must Haves

Do you ever open the most recent J. Crew catalog to find it’s filled with dozens of fabulous pieces you wish you could have right now? Or do you peruse JCrew.com, slowly adding “must-haves” to your shopping cart until it gets so expensive you freak out and leave the site before you do any damage?

Of course you do, it happens to the best of us. Rather than feeling discouraged and upset that you cannot have every J. Crew piece that you want right now, try to focus on “investment pieces,” those that will never go out of style and you can keep wearing year after year. That way, you can make small investments over time and feel good (rather than remorseful) about your purchases.

Below are the Investment Pieces on my list, tweet yours to @JCrewReview and we might just add them to this master list!
