J. Crew Summer Sale 2010 Picks
J. Crew holds a unique place in the retail industry. They’re upper end American fashion, but they’re also down to earth and accessible. And they dominate that segment of the market. That exclusivity can lead to their stuff getting pretty expensive pretty fast, but their sales also offer up some decent deals. You just have to watch for them and hope they’ve got what you want in your size.
And guess what. They’ve got a sale going on. Here’s three of the best items that have been market down for the current J. Crew Summer Sale…
Wide Stripe Old School Tie – SALE $29.99 for Classic Burgundy or Fountain (reg. $49.50)
Simple but still bold thanks to the thickness of the stripes, these ties can be dressed up with any wool or cotton suit, or dressed down with jeans and a lightly structured blazer. 2 3/4″ width means they’re slim but not too skinny.
J. Crew Ludlow Striped Cotton Blazer – SALE $99.99 (reg. $148.00)
Solid Blue blazers are tough to wear with dark jeans because the blues are often just too close. That’s not the case with this medium navy blazer. The stripes also set it apart from your denim, and it’s structured enough to also pair up with chinos for a summer business look.
J. Crew Cotton-cashmere V-neck sweater – SALE $19.99 – $39.50 (reg. $59.50)
Cotton cashmere is smooth, breathes like crazy, and is thin enough that you can layer up with minimal extra warmth. These are the sweaters you want to put on over a rumpled up oxford for the cool and breezy nights of summer. Tons of color options, sizes are scattered all over the board.
