J. Crew fall collection

J. Crew presented their fall collection last week, and everything looks gorgeous, old-fashioned and tomboy-ish. I love the burnt reds and mustard yellows, and the knee-high socks paired with winter shorts are so laid-back and sexy. What do you guys think? xo

I always want to wear every single outfit from the JCrew catalogs -- it all looks wonderful, chic, and pretty!!

Mari said...

Holy cats, I freaking love this.

The palette is gorgeous, and I love the super-feminine knee socks with the rougher tweeds and plaids.

WELL DONE, J.Crew.

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, mari, the tweeds are amazing!!!

Rachel Dangerfield said...

I'm absolutely crazy about those four individual model stills... especially the adorable model with the thigh highs and flowers in her bag :)

I would love to be seen in this collection. High five for J. Crew, yes?

Joanna Goddard said...

as my friend caroline says, "we are screwed." :)

Laura said...

oh I'm so excited! I always love their looks, I pick a few of my favs and splurge :)

Bottom left picture, I need you in my closet!

Analiese Marie said...

Wow - so retro! Reminds me of a musical or something, but I can't put my finger on which one.

Sasha K. said...

Very nice. I really like the wool shorts with the gray thigh highs. And that rose-colored little furry jacket in the first photo looks amazing. I'm usually not a fan of pink, but that looks really pretty.

melissa davis said...

It's downright embarrassing how much JCrew I wear... ;) LOVE the Fall collection!

Diana said...

I only started to wear J Crew stuff when they moved away from their WASP-y, New England prep style and became a little more appropriate for non-white girls. This, however, is moving again towards a style that I, as an Asian woman, can not imagine myself in. It looks great, (except I don’t like dress-shorts) but I think any other ethnicity would look ridiculous wearing any of this stuff.

I do give J Crew credit for having an Asian model in their catalogs though, I think more companies should do the same. It’s weird when out of 15 models, 1 is black and 1 is Asian. That’s not what the real world looks like.

Cara said...

Love love love all the new looks! Just not sure they would look good on my 5'2" frame :/

maggie said...

golf clap, golf clap. i heart all the brooches!

Nicole Smith said...

love them all... but am sooo not ready for fall wear! ;)

Elisa, Croatia said...

I was introduced to j.crew a few years ago when a friend was wearing a lovely pair of pants and she mentioned they were from J.crew. Now that I;m living overseas it's difficult to find any stores on this side of the globe. Oh well for now, Zara and Mango's it is.

nicole said...

Not so sure about the yellow plaid blanket-coat, but other than that, I like the muted palette and funky textures!

sylvie @ silver lining said...

the cozy grey heathered socks and thigh highs are fantastic with the sweet lace up oxfords.

only 5 months until fall :)

xo,

Francesca♥ said...

it looks gorgeous, i love the nude and brown colours ♥

pretty shiny things said...

love it all. per usual. why isn't my money tree sprouting yet?

Andrea said...

All the clothes are, as usual, beautiful! I think the styling really does it though. Reminds me of Alexa Chung for Madewell, no? Thank you for sharing!!

Melanie's Randomness said...

Stunning!!!! I wish they were just not so expensive!!

Marion Hemmat said...

Love all the looks but my favorite is the first one! :)

Ludmila {CreamyLife.com} said...

Fabulous outfits! J.Crew definitely jumped over its head with this collection!

heart charlie said...

*sigh* lovely as always!!! I want everything ;)

just call me jo said...

Seriously, they look like rejects from a stage play of "Oliver Twist." So, I guess that's a not-so-much from me.

Heather said...

I want everything. I remember how when I was in catholic school i hated wearing knee highs and skirts and now i can't get enough of the knee high look and skirts. hahaha

Also the photoshoot reminds me of Fiddler on the Roof...

Jen said...

I'm just getting into spring fashion: apple green, lilac, coral! I can't think about fall fashion now! All of this is totally unattractive to me because I'm so spring-focused. I'll revisit it in August/September. :-)

D&D said...

shut the front door.
how do they always get it RIGHT?
i want to wear a plaid blanket as a cape now!!!

erin said...

J. Crew just keeps getting better and better. I'm not excited for fall, but these clothes are lovely.

DailyDivaDish said...

OMG there's not a bad look in the bunch. And I'm such a sucker for tweed and plaid...

For how affordable their clothing is I love the attention to detail, the way they style the pieces, and the overall touch of luxury. J.crew definitely has every part of the equation right season after season and they continue to get better.

Emz said...

Well I CAN tell you I didn't thinK I was a big fan of jcrew but............. Apparently, I am now. I love this.

Thanks for the post.

Love it.

Jennifer said...

I am glad they're getting away from all of the ruffly tops and jackets and back to being a little more inspired by the classics. I'm not loving the models' hair overall... a bit too messy; maybe slightly toned down bedhead would be doable.
Now if they would just bring their prices down a smidge so I didn't have to keep waiting for everything to go on sale plus an extra percent off!

Felicity said...

I think the styling is hideous! It looks like gypsy-clown-ragamuffin-chaos to me. With a splash of hobo!!

Jennifer said...

Oh, and I forgot: a big "NO!" vote on the furry vest and jacket in the first photo. How many real women are going to be able to pull those looks off without being laughed at? I mean, really!

hip hip gin gin said...

Love it! As I always do. Every time someone asks me what I want on gift giving occasions I say "there is nothing on the J.Crew website that I don't want!". I think this particular collection supports that statement quite nicely!!
Now I'm looking forward to fall and spring hasn't even really started yet!

Joanna Goddard said...

haha," shut the front door." D&D, i love that :)

MissAllaby said...

as excited as I am about the onset of spring, the delicious fall clothes make me swoony. Yes, D&D, plaid blanket capes for all!!

Dancing Branflake said...

Awesome! I am so happy to see that flower accents will still be hot in the fall. I hate when trends leave so quickly.

Joanna said...

I adore these looks in theory, but I think any woman who wears any of these head-to-toe would be in danger of looking like they're going to a costume party. I think perhaps the idea is to take elements of these individual looks and make them your own. I love the tights, knee-highs (even though I couldn't pull them off in a million years) and tweed jackets. And those red lips!

Melissa Blake said...

I love those. They have a vintage 1920's feel to them!! I fear I might be developing a new addiction! xoxo

seesaw designs said...

i have been completely and totally obsessing over it since i first saw it. the hair is beyond incredible.

perfect styling.

Maki said...

I honestly believe J.Crew has evolved so much compared from a decade ago - simple and yet stylish and has edge to it. I love this post! Hand down J.Crew!

The Neo-Traditionalist said...

I think it's spectacular!! I posted about the girl in the geek chic tortoise frames last week. Love what they're doing with the piles of sparkly brooches too. Gorgeous!

fall collection out already?! its not even summer...

but wow. its beautiful. fall will always be my favorite time of the year for fashion.

mkendall said...

I am so in love with this. The faded charcoal backdrop they used in their shoot just sets off everything perfectly.

amy said...

Love it! Very old New England with a twist.

The French said...

I love the hats. Love the tomboy-ness and the color palette. Just wondering if you have to lean on a chair or sit on a stool to pull it off? :)

Christina said...

This is why I love fall. All of the rich colors.

Josie said...

Drooooooooool. I love J.Crew a little too much for words.
xxoo Josie

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

WOw! I am impressed, always thought J.Crew was a bit dull. Not anymore! By the way received the Lavender Fry sneakers and they are just perfect!

Gilda David said...

It looks great.. really yummy :D !!

Kayla said...

Does anyone ever look at J. Crew ads and not want everything? Or to be one of the girls in them?

amber said...

i love those deep read tights. swoon!

Joanna Goddard said...

oh, kristin, i'm so glad you like them!!

Maria said...

this all looks so cozy and i love the color palette. i'm really excited that seattle is getting a madewell store too!

Anonymous said...

Does anyone else think this photo shoot looks like a sad production of Our Town? Just put a little fake dirt on their faces and you're in a high school drama class!

almalu said...

so thirties and stylish!

Yumi @ Natsukashii said...

Jcrew is the best. Simple, clean & classic! I wore one of their dresses for my wedding too :). This fall line is delicious.

Phoenix said...

Holy crap FALL collection! I've just come to terms with the fact that it's no longer February! GAH!

battlingthedinosaurs said...

I'm so obsessed with the JCrew fall collection. I want everything!

DH Hunter said...

I really do love J Crew and they're aesthetic but I think the
Grey Gardens look is wearing thin.

DIVA in DC said...

Wow I am actually pleasantly surprised that J Crew is going with a more edgy look this season. Very excited by this styling.

Camila said...

the first photo looks like a pride of lions!

lizanne said...

Pretty cute stuff! But isn't it nuts how they conceptualize their seasons more than a year in advance? I got to tour their design studios (fellow journalist here) and they actually begin planning future seasons' clothes 18 months in advance!

upatreecupatea said...

LOVE! So edgy and fun.
I hate that J. Crew gets the "cougar moms or sorority girls only" wrap at lot of the time. Not only the cardigans are amazing! :)

Kristin said...

Hiring that lady was the best thing the Crew ever did. They just keep killin' it with every collection! LOVE!

SammyJ said...

I've always had a thing for jcrew and this collection doesn't disappoint.

Happenstance said...

I am loving it so, so much it's hard not to emotionally bypass summer! The collection is brilliant. The colors, fabrics, everything. Brilliant!

christina said...

i like it! I think of english cottages and horses :)

lepetitdoodler said...

no famine of beauty here...

the muted, less-saturated palette combined with pops of rust, mustard and army green remind me of max's photos!

speaking of max, josh and i loved our engagement session with him & margaux. (discovered max via your blog over a year ago.) we're not a camera friendly couple, but max totally made things work. thanks a bunch, joanna :-D

annie markantonatou said...

i just love j.crew!
so classy!

I am not a fan of j.crew. For all their recent push away from clean lines and into intricate detailing the past few years, I still think jcrew pieces come off as unimaginative and standard. When I see a jcrew piece, I *know* it's a jcrew piece, and I'm not talking about the positive aspect of branding, either.
Jcrew's clothes look to me as though an unadventurous, self-proclaimed fashionista woke up one day and declared "I want to be a hipster!"

Susan said...

It's Dickens/Oliver ick. Outside a fashion shoot very little is wearable. they can try as much as they want to try winter shorts: they were tacky in the 1970s & they're tacky now. Sorry.

Rosie Campbell said...

While I am not even ready to think about fall yet, I was excited to see this post. J. Crew has been my go to wardrobe staple since college. It is still classic yet a bit edgy. I love the color palette and fabrics that they have chosen. Just not sure about those vests.

magpiesandmagnolias said...

LOVE the jackets. Need the jackets!

Blue Is Bleu said...

I'm slightly in love with this... which is odd because I'm not normally fond of brown!

What About Lunch said...

I'm happy to see tights are here to stay :-) I'd like to try a pair under some cut off denim shorts...
Also not tired of over-the-knee socks and women's oxfords!
Thanks for the sneak peak.

Heidi said...

GORGEOUS.. the colors are just sooo wonderful...

Sweet Freak said...

Wow, go J. Crew!!

littlebyrd said...

I think I am in love. This looks awesome and am now super excited for Fall shopping.

Lana said...

I love jcrew but I am not loving the direction of the catalogs lately. The models look unhappy which is very different from their usual feel.

miami beach mansion rentals said...

J.Crew just keeps raising the bar. I think there will be a lot more fashionista wearing their pieces thanks to this collection. I already have my eye on the tweeds.

Sydney said...

Love, love love it! Jcrew has totally begun to take fashion seriously and announce their creative inspirations etc. Sooo great! Check out my good blog about my life as an expat in France!

I like the skirts in the spring more than these from the fall, but these aren't bad either. Banana Republic has many good options this season as well.

Oh, I sympathize. Omegle My husband and I were working for the same company Omegle Sohbet when I was pregnant, and I can't count how many times I hauled him out of his office out to the parking Omegle Chat lot so I could have a meltdown. (because of course I couldn't do it alone, I had to have a witness and then a hug after...)
I'd much rather have Omegle that than a huge diamond! So much classier. Graham Cluley, omegle a researcher at security firm Sophos, Görüntülü Chat told BBC News that Twitter needs "much tighter control" over what users can put in a tweet to prevent similar problems in the future.
