I had the pleasure of attending the J Crew fall preview a few days ago, hosted by fellow blogger Kristin Clark, and boy did I find some great fall inspiration! Everywhere you turned there were brights, stripes, polka dots, french hens, metallic heels, chain details, glittery and studded headbands… luckily I had my camera with me to help take it all in. At first I was surprised to see so many brights in their fall collection (fully expecting to see more muted tones) but their use of color was great in how they transitioned seasons: from fuchsia chino shorts in the summer to fuchsia corduroy pants and cashmere sweaters for the fall. Who says you need to tone it down in the chilly air? Certainly not J Crew!
