If you missed last week’s post, then welcome to Fall For Robson! For the next couple of weeks, every Friday I’ll be posting about a fall trend, bringing it to life with pieces found on Vancouver’s most famous shopping street! What’s more, every week one Greater Vancouver area reader will win $50 to one of the featured Robson Street retailers!
Up for grabs this week: $50 to J.Crew! I mean…come on. Why spend fall in a basic sweater when you can spend it in an embellished pullover? If anyone knows how to do these embellished numbers well, it’s J.Crew. It completely symbolizes the brand’s classic-with-a-twist aesthetic that they’re celebrated for, and every season they have a range of pieces that I lust after.
While the most natural and classic way to wear these stunning sweaters is with basic denim, I kind of fell in love with the idea of creating an elevated schoolgirl look. Maybe it’s because secretly, I was always jealous of people who got to go to private school because I thought their outfits were so chic (plus, if anyone’s seen pictures of me as a teen, it goes without saying that having a uniform probably would’ve saved me from some horrendously misguided outfits), but more than anything I just love how the sweater anchors a flirty skirt and classic silk blouse with its femme-meets-tomboy sensibility.
All right, so now it’s your turn to bring some J.Crew to your own closet! The contest will run from today to Wednesday at 11:59PM PST, so make sure you get your entry in before then! The winner will be announced on Thursday, meaning you’ll have a couple days to plan your next weekend shopping trip! Good luck!
