5 Picks From J.Crew Factory’s Anniversary Sale for the Unseasonably Warm Weather
The Farmer’s Almanac was right—this autumn is shaping up to be a warm one. In many parts of the country, daily highs have been creeping towards the upper eighties. This means that your plans for fully embracing sweater weather and integrating your fall wardrobe have, sadly, been delayed until further notice. But if you’re antsy to wear a few new fall finds without overheating, you’re in luck. Many stores are holding their end-of-season clearance events, with late summer and early fall looks available for deep discounts. For example, J.Crew Factory is offering 50 percent off their normal selection and an additional 50 percent off their clearance with free shipping using the code BIGFIVE until tomorrow, October 10, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Though you’ll have to dig for some seasonless pieces among the summery-style, they’re there—and won’t cost you any more than $25, max. Don’t believe us? We're highlighting five of our favorite picks from their sale, as well as ways to style it once the weather finally gets cold.
Printed Winnie Pant
We love the fun and fancy-free geometric print on these ankle pants. Style it with a white tee for warmer days, and a neutral sweater (think caramel or gray) for the colder ones.
To buy: $25 (originally $72.50); factory.jcrew.com.
Just throw a cardigan or blazer over this flowy, fiery-hued tank and—viola!—you’ll have a look that will last you well into winter.
To buy: $10 (originally $60); factory.jcrew.com.
Plaid Gauze Shirt in Boy Fit
What says “fall” better than a plaid button-down? This bright variation is a light breezy cotton for warmer days, but works well layered under a navy blue sweater for the more “seasonally appropriate” days.
To buy: $15 (originally $60); factory.jcrew.com.
Link Necklace with Ribbon Tie Closure
This navy-hued piece is truly a necklace for all seasons. For fall, wear it with burgundy or gold. Once winter rolls around, pair it with your winter whites and grays. When spring comes, throw it on over bright colors like pink or green. And, of course, top off your patriotic red and white outfit with its blue for Fourth of July and beyond!
To buy: $7.50 (originally $40); factory.jcrew.com.
A-Line Denim Skirt
Pair this five-pocket classic with a striped tee in an autumnal color (like black and white, or burgundy and white). When the temperature starts to drop, just throw on a pair of sheer black tights to get more mileage.
To buy: $20 (originally $70); factory.jcrew.com.
