Despite the fact that I can't remember the last time I purchased something at J.Crew (blame the prices; low enough to get me into the store but too high to actually convince me to spend any money),* I've really been digging their designer collaborations as of late. Partnering up with such timeless brands as Timex (punny), Sperry, and Panama, they're beefing up their 'classic' aesthetic with a few tried-and-true classics. In addition, they've selected certain pieces from their sister line Madewell - a smart move considering that, like H&M, Madewell isn't currently sold online.
Partnerships can be a beautiful thing. Check out some of my favorites:
