NYFW: J.Crew Review

I think there is a different type of adulthood dressing going on in NYC as far as I see. You can say it's a sign of the times or because we're a generation that's trying to completely stray from the previous one. But young adults and "adults" alike don't dress the way previously imagined. You know what I mean; the capri pant, the v neck sweater, the "mom/dad" sneaker etc. Make no mistake we're not dressing like college kids either. We're more casual, more relaxed, more put together, more refined. We want to be taken seriously but we still want to strike that balance. 

J. Crew's Fall 2014 collection created that balance. Honestly I will say that J. Crew pretty much debuts the same thing every time. It's not a bad thing at all because whatever they show is always great and what's even better is were not stuck in lust limbo for 6-8 months. 

Their staple classic coats in a rich cognac, navy blue and a bright orange were included. So was  a beautiful navy blue and straw colored design paired with a nautical striped tee, brown cargo capri pant and a beautiful brown print heel with a aqua blue outline. J. Crew has always had a knack for pairing pieces together and this collection was no different. There was a big focus on flower prints done on a black background. A red and navy blue silk fabric seen on a pajama pant and a knee length dress. An army green bomber aviator jacket was paired with a navy blue and white botanical print pant, a pony haired crew neck, and a black strap sandal with a bright orange sole.

My favorite looks from the collection was a very interesting structured funnel neck pale pink dress 
paired with a bronze metallic sandal. You know how much I love my denim and J. Crew has mastered that look time and time again. I also gravitated towards the color block fur coat paired with a grey knit, grey skinny pant and pumps.

All in all J. Crew once again debuted a beautiful collection. But what did you really expect they created the formula. What did you guys think? Thanks for stopping by.
