For J. Crew, Spring 2014 is as much about dressing up as it is about dressing down, all the while maintaining the air of sophistication this brand is applauded for.
As always, J. Crew kept the mens’ looks clean-cut and slim. Classic navy, chambray grey, and white corduroy blazers presented alongside maroon and dark olive green jackets created a collection that oozed a semi-preppy elegance. Trousers either matched the blazers or contrasted them in colors, with brown leather double monk straps to complete the look.
On the more casual front, the brand downplayed fancier looks by incorporating easy-to-wear pieces. A dark grey pinstripe suits over a basic crew neck t-shirt with matching above-the-knee shorts, for example, set the stage for comfortable luxury. Other looks included dark colored crew neck sweaters with vertical lines stretching across the body and the arms.
When it came to women’s wear, J.Crew maintained its laid-back approach to creating quality garments. A tailored dark blazer was thrown over a full skirted floral dress for a mix of fancy and casual. Standout looks included bright neon dresses that elongated the models’ bodies stylishly while simultaneously maintaing a look of comfort.
Basic t-shirts and shorts were also included in the presentation in the form of eccentric patterns one would find through a kaleidoscope.
J.Crew’s spring 2014 presentation offers a variety that would gain popularity amongst all groups of dressers. From the put-together business man or woman to the comfort seeking college student, the collection covers all grounds.
