When we look at a J.Crew catalog or enter one of its stores, something wonderful happens in our brains. Seeing the same belt fastened just so around three different kinds of dresses, or a denim pant cuff rolled to perfection gives us such life, in the same way a slideshow like this can inspire weeks of artful tucking, rolling, and combining.
Part of J.Crew's appeal is we already own many of its classic clothes. From Breton stripes and jean jackets to wool pencil skirts and funnel-neck sweaters, the retailer's stock makes up some of our most reliable go-tos. The magic, though, lies in the small things its team does to put it all together. The way that they're able to execute a side tuck, a sloppy bow, or even drape a scarf around a neck makes every other side tuck, sloppy bow, or draped scarf look like it was done by amateurs.
Its fall collection brought a great new delivery of basics as well as some lovely styling ideas (try 30) to liven everything up. Click through to see all the outfits, as well as that little perfectly imperfect somethin'-somethin' that makes it stand out.
