Perhaps you remember this J Crew merino sweater blazer from my real outfit recap a few weeks ago–it’s still going strong in the rotation (and I’m wearing an XS – it runs a little big).  It’s deconstructed, yet tailored, chic but not too serious and just the jacket that I probably didn’t need but am already wondering how I lived without.

On a related note, has anyone been impressed with J Crew this fall season?  They fall off my radar for the past few years and everything I’ve purchased lately has been good quality and well-constructed (I personally feel like they went through production and quality issues over the past few years).  It reminds me of the J Crew I used to know and love (maybe the Nordstrom partnership made them step up their game or perhaps they wanted to keep up with their sister brand, Madewell – who knows).

Here’s eight other pieces that have impressed me from J Crew this season:

They brought back the rollneck sweater.

I bought this coat four years ago and they still make it!  For good reason.

These boots are Rag & Bone inspired (and for under $200).

I’ve ben wearing these pajamas for years (the pants run short, just FYI).

Simple, cute, with a modern detail and under $50.


This reminds me of a Veronica Beard skirt and for 1/4 of the price!

A velvet jumpsuit that’s perfect for any holiday event.

  1. I agree that their quality has been lacking for awhile. Everything seemed/seems thin and short to me. Overall the quality hasn’t been as good as it was – in my opinion – for 10 years (when I originally found my love for Jcrew). It is getting better, but it’s still not a go to for me. I love The blazer though! And how you styled it.

    • I hear you – I totally lost faith in them for a solid few years there. I actually don’t know how I found myself ordering frmo them again…maybe I was picking out some sale crewcuts for my kids and a swimsuit (I’ve never lost love for their swim 🙂 but I was so pleasantly surprised with this blazer and I have purchased a few other things this season! I haven’t lost hope…also, they seem to be bringing the prices down a bit…woo!
