J.Crew, Abercrombie, and Banana Republic Are Cool Again—See My Current Wish List

J.Crew, Banana Republic, and Abercrombie becoming the favored shopping destinations of the fashion set certainly weren't on my 2022 bingo card. But as always, the industry always likes to keep me on my toes. I can't scroll through TikTok and Instagram without seeing an influencer, editor, or just an average consumer posting about their latest purchase from one of the three. And with every post I see, I become increasingly impressed. Our team has even gone the lengths of testing various pieces from the retailers and has given nothing but high praises for the fit and quality. 

Out of both professional and personal curiosity, I went through every single page on each site and ended up with a thorough fall wish list. Everything below is not only on-trend but is also basic enough to be worn for years. Last but not least, all the pieces look triple the price. If you don't believe me, keep scrolling and see for yourself. (And be prepared to click "add to cart" along the way.)

Assistant Market Editor
Yusra Siddiqui is an editor who resides in New Jersey but bounces between the suburbs and NYC. (She's a Jersey girl at heart.) After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
