My 63-Year-Old Mom and I Both Love the New J.Crew—29 Items That Get a Yes

My 63-Year-Old Mom and I Both Love the New J.Crew—29 Items That Get a Yes

My mom and I have been longtime fans of J.Crew. I have fond memories of perusing the store at my local mall during the holidays and trying on our favorite pieces. Well, our adoration for the brand is even more powerful these days with the latest collections with Olympia Gayot (pictured above) at the helm of womenswear and kids. It should also be mentioned that while there is a 29-year age difference between us (I’m 34, she’s 63), we both tend to gravitate toward similar pieces that fit within wardrobes primarily made up of elevated basics. Given that age has nothing to do with what you can wear, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. 

We went through the latest offering, and each pulled out what spoke to us most. The edit of the pieces that got a “Yes!” from us are below. You’ll notice everything from beautiful tailoring silhouettes to chic button-down shirts that could become new staples to darling spring separates. Keep scrolling for more.

My mom adores the contrast stripe on the sleeve.

Linen pants are perfect for the season.

An easy way to bring polish to a look.

The name says it all: essential.

My mom has another J.Crew feather blouse, and now wants this one.

A summer must-have for those that love French style.
