NOTES ON STYLE | J.CREW SS14 NYFW PRESENTATION

I am an autumn girl through and through. It’s my season. The colours, the clothes, the weather – it’s all me. And then I see the spring/summer collections and I start wishing the days away until I can wear crisp whites and citrusy florals. There’s no pleasing some people.

New York Fashion Week has just drawn to a close, and as usual, there were some spectacular collections presented. One of my favourites was J.Crew, who continue to develop their ‘style over fashion’ collections to produce clothes that women like me REALLY want to wear. Some fashion week collections are pure escapist fantasy. I’d no sooner consider wearing the pieces than I would moving to the Australian outback and farming sheep.

But J.Crew seem to have found that happy place between clothes I feel I already own, and clothes I feel I could be brave enough to wear (well,maybe not the floral bermuda shorts, I REALLY don’t have the legs). But that coat, above left, heck yes! And the trousers. And the shoes. And the high-low mix in the outfits below? Yes and yes!

Matchy-matchy bermuda shorts and shoes? Call me crazy, but I’m loving it.

The outfit below right is pretty much my idea of perfection. In fact I think I’ll be wearing a variation on that theme tomorrow, because spring is just too damn long to wait.
