When I say J Crew, you think beautiful basics for work, and casual pieces that are perfect for a weekend in the Hamptons, or a photoshoot on a yacht, right? I think J Crew’s treasure is really its stylists. I would love to meet the amazing team of stylists who put together the catalog looks. They can turn the most simple pair of khaki trousers into a gorgeous, unique look.
I think the secret is layering. Piling on the pieces lets you mix and match colors, textures, and silhouettes to achieve something out of the ordinary. My mom and I were discussing how practical their creations are for real life. I decided you’d have to live in a cold climate to achieve the kind of layering done in the catalogs. However, I would gladly strut around town looking like I just stepped out of a catalog any day. The J Crew stylists are style magicians.
