New Arrivals: J.Crew Spring 2019

For several years, I would not wear J.Crew.  The tail end of the Jenna Lyons years were marked by over-the-top styling and poor quality, and I just wasn’t having it.  But the brand has bounced back a bit over the past 12-months.

Not every piece is a must-have, but there are a lot more diamonds than there is rough.  And now they have plus-sizes in addition to some petites and tall pieces.  Here are my picks from their 2019 early-Spring new arrivals.

Textured Lady Cardigan ($80)

Harper East Tote ($228)

Hammered Satin Top ($79)

Knit Sheath Dress ($88)

Point Sur Ruffle Top ($69)

Scalloped Trimmed Pullover ($89)

    When I walked in to a J Crew store a few years ago and the whole place was giant ruffled one-shoulder tops I just didn’t even know what was happening. I get someone wanting ONE ruffled one-shoulder top, but seriously…the whole line? So I got buy purchasing second-hand button downs that were their older quality in normal silhouettes. But when I needed sweaters this winter, I was really pleased by their new options and all of them have been great! They is still a lot of shaking up going on but I hope this trend of quality basics with a little something extra continues.

    Is the quality back up to par? I would hate to spend the money and then have it destroyed after 2 washes. Thanks!

      Many of the pieces I’ve purchased are noticeably better. I don’t think the t-shirts have improved.

    My local store closed down! Not sure the cause but it’s a bummer now that they’re getting their moxie back

    I was a die hard JCrew lover during high school, college and my early career years. Then Jenna Lyons murdered it. (I know, it’s a somewhat unpopular thing to say out loud, but I believe it.) The store has finally started redeeming itself and becoming a go to again for me. And then my local store closed last week. Whomp whomp wha.

      Meh, I think it’s a pretty common thing to say. I don’t know if anyone outside fashionista circles who worship the ground she walks on and don’t buy J.Crew anyways would disagree with you.

    While I desperately want jcrew to survive, I have to be honest and say the quality isn’t what it used to be, still. I bought a turtleneck over the holiday, gentled washed it twice and it’s already holey and stretched out. Be careful.

    Agree completely. Jenna Lyons was the worse hint that ever happened to JCrew. I have bought more in the last six months from JCrew than the previous five years.
