6 Trendy Basics That Are Going to Blow Up, According to J.Crew

If you read Who What Wear regularly, you’ll be well aware of our latest obsession with J.Crew. Since the beginning of summer, we’ve been swooning over the head of women’s design, Olympia Gayot’s clever and cool outfit ideas, and checking the site regularly to see what chic new arrivals they have in store. What we love most about J.Crew right now is that their elevated basics strike the perfect balance of preppy, classic and timeless yet exude a trend-forward touch—whether it’s an of-the-moment color or silhouette—their pieces feel fresh and current. Moreover, J.Crew’s pieces are always super wearable—perfect for work, the weekend, and beyond.

So what are the chicest trend-forward basics that are having a moment right now for the cold-weather season? Below, I’m sharing six items from J.Crew you and everyone you know will soon be craving like the sartorial version of oat milk latte’s in a matter of weeks.

J.Crew are winning in the button-down department this season. They have plenty of timeless yet trend-forward options, including their exciting collaboration with Marie Marot. 

One of the most noteworthy staples we’ve excitedly had our eyes on are J.Crew’s boots. Customers absolutely rave about them and there are plenty of chic leather and suede options you can wear (and easily walk in) for work, evenings out, and more casual affairs.

J.Crew’s basic sweaters are anything but boring when they come in this season’s standout color trends. J.Crew always excel at beautiful colors, and these knits below prove it.

We can’t get enough of the Chanel-inspired ladylike jackets and sweater-jacket hybrids on the site right now. They add a polished and chic touch to every outfit.

If you’re looking to lean into one of this season’s biggest trends—slip dresses—then you’ll find the perfect selection of ’90s inspired styles at J.Crew right now.

Nothing looks as chic as a classic suit. J.Crew has some sleek options in a variety of color ways and silhouettes that will see you through the fall season in style.
