Whenever I see pictures by J.Crew - whether they be on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, their blog, etc. - I'm always instantly inspired to refresh my wardrobe. They have a way of creating bright, simple and crisp look that never goes out of style, and always catches my eye every season. However, as a high school student saving for college, I only very rarely splurge on their pieces, unless it's something on the sale rack. Instead of dropping $150 on a button down or a trendy pant, I use J.Crew as style inspiration and find similar pieces at less expensive stores. Don't get me wrong, I think J.Crew is an excellent place to find staples like navy blazers or quilted vests, but I can't always seem to justify spending $90 on a sweater that is likely to be "in" for only a few months. That being said, I'm in love with several of the looks they have for this upcoming season, especially all the seersucker, stripes and gingham! (The navy + white gingham shoes especially kill me... ugh). Popsugar is oh so accurate when they say that "J.Crew will fulfill your wildest preppy dreams" for Spring 2016!
I'm currently compiling a list of pieces from J.Crew that I love and then am going to hunt down similar, less expensive alternatives. Be on the look out for that post soon!
Are you obsessed with their new line too?
