My first thought when checking out J. Crew's April Enchanted collection was," Wow, great photography." Notice, I did not say, " Wow, great clothes." While J.Crew is known for their classic staples, I can't help but wonder who would look chic in these basic clothes unless they were stick-thin like the models on the website. Without the awesome styling, superb photography, and great model poses, what is left for the April Echanted Collection? Black skinny pants, v-neck tees, a fedora hat, and some fringe boots. Well, we've all seen that before.
I will say that the fringe boots WERE cute, (if I didn't already own a few pairs) and the bandeau top looked chic (loving the ruffles), but that's no money maker. Plus, the clothes seemed to be all in musty gray-ish tones. By April, I'm ready to trade in for some color!
Overall I'm giving J-Crew a +2.
