Shopping Guide: J Crew Fall 2008

October 16th, 2008

J Crew is our go-to store for classics with a twist–those special standout pieces that you can use to elevate the rest of your everyday wardrobe.  We can always count on them for gorgeous colors, beautiful patterns, and quality fabrics.  Plus, their garment construction is top-notch for their price point.  Though J Crew’s prices tend to be on the high side of what we feature here on Omiru, we believe that the clothes are worth it. When you do the cost-per-wear math, the number of wears tends to more than make up for the cost.  Here’s five our our favorite pieces from J Crew’s Fall 2008 collection - pieces that can live in your wardrobe for years to come:

    I love the retro look of the French Serge Day Coat! And the Snow Leopard Simone Peacoat is pretty cool, too! They prices are a bit on the dear side, but even if you decide not to splurge, you can always look for similar styles at lower prices.
    Though… hmmm… that French Serge Day coat would be worth it to me! I can see it with dresses and jeans!

    The French Serge Day Coat is my fave too….I’m considering the splurge :) You really can dress it up or dress it down, and the color is gorgeous!

    I just saw a photo of Michelle Obama wearing the Italian Deco Tank ( J Crew). Stylish!
