I'm a Fashion Editor in L.A.—These Are the 25 J.Crew Items I Need in My Life

The triumphant return of J.Crew is something I have been really passionate about. Under the exhilarating reign of Olympia Gayot, the brand is finally feeling fresh again and I am all in. I currently live in Los Angeles where the winter weather doesn't necessarily permit traditional seasonal dressing. Not that I'm complaining, but this warmer winter means I have to shop strategically and I'll be doing that at J.Crew. Below, I listed 25 of my editor-approved items from the retailer that feels perfect for my California holiday season. 

Featuring everything from trendy shoes to classic sweaters, if you're looking for your chicest winter yet, these are the pieces that will help get you there. The best part about shopping at J.Crew is that most everything can be paired together due to the cohesiveness of the brand. So filling your carts just a little more than usual will be a really good investment for your closet. You're welcome.
