Out of all the trends that have emerged as of late, it’s the pretty and ultra-romantic aesthetic that I can’t seem to get off my mind. Brands like Miu Miu and 16Arlington sent a wave of pastels down their runways and have managed to capture the hearts of fashion folk everywhere—my fellow editors and I included. And retailers are paying close attention. While pastels and pretty, bright hues aren’t usually what dominate the fall market, that’s all I can spot while perusing the new-arrivals pages. As someone who usually doesn’t gravitate toward these colors, I’m pairing the look with some of my edgier pieces.
Today’s retailer of discussion happens to be J.Crew, and the preppy brand’s womenswear team has fully hopped on board with these big trends. There are your usual classic choices of neutrals and deep tones, but among the mix, you’ll find plenty of silky slip dresses, pastel knits, and dainty jewelry. Keep scrolling to shop the trend and add a fresh touch to your wardrobe.
