J.Crew Has So Many Pretty Things Right Now—I Can't Get These 32 Out of My Head

Out of all the trends that have emerged for fall/winter 2022, it's the pretty and ultra-femme aesthetic that I can't seem to get off my mind. Brands like Miu Miu and 16Arlington sent a wave of pastels down their fall/winter 2022 runways and have managed to capture the hearts of fashion folk everywhere—my fellow editors and I included. And retailers are paying close attention. While pastels aren't usually what dominates the fall market, that's all I can spot while perusing the new-arrivals pages. As someone who usually doesn't gravitate toward pastels, I'm pairing the look with my edgier fall pieces.

Today's retailer of discussion happens to be J.Crew, and the preppy brand's womenswear team has fully hopped on board with fall's biggest trend. There are your usual autumnal choices of neutrals and deep tones, but among the mix, you'll find plenty of silky slip dresses, pastel knits, and dainty jewelry. Keep scrolling to shop the trend and add a fresh touch to your fall wardrobe.

When you're in no mood to brainstorm an outfit, this sweater is an easy solution. The cashmere and the slouchy silhouette are comfortable, and the dusty rose and deep neckline elevate it.

I need someone to copy and paste this entire monochromatic look.

I never thought I'd want a pink suit, but this outfit is really selling it.

Is there such a thing as too many cozy cardigans? I'm asking for a friend.

The color contrast is really tugging at my heartstrings.

You may already own a few poplin shirts, but do you own one with a feather trim?

I haven't been able to stop thinking about this shirt since I saw it on Olympia Gayot's Instagram. I'm not even a preppy girl, but I can get behind this shirt.

These shoes are the definition of pretty.

A statement hair accessory adds more to an outfit than you'd think.

As you can see, there's no shortage of statement pieces here.

Do you have any formal events coming up? This dress is your match.

The kind of sweater you throw on over jeans and call it a day.

Barbie pink isn't slowing down anytime soon.

A Chanel-esque jacket in stock? It's a miracle.

Pair these socks with any of the shoes in this roundup or the ultimate look.

This pale lilac is really having a moment right now.

Add an edgy touch to this dress with a leather jacket and knee-high boots. 

The best way to stay warm this season.
