When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with some classic stripes.
Now, it seems like every day is a “national” theme day. We admit, some are a bit weird, and some we definitely love (Puppy day! Pizza day!). But, we have to give retailer J. Crew props for inventing its own national day and celebrating what it truly does best: stripes.
Last year, J. Crew announced its first annual National Stripes Day and it’s bringing it back on March 31st. To prepare for the holiday, the retailer has plenty of limited-edition items in stock, just in time for a spring wardrobe refresh. Plus, right now, you can get 40 percent off full price items with the code SPRINGTOIT.
Long-Sleeve Stripe Dress
This one is the perfect dress for the transition from winter to spring. Wear it with a warmer jacket right now when temps aren’t quite high yet in most of the country, and then layer a scarf or jean jacket over it when April or early May come around.
