J.Crew, Banana Republic, and Abercrombie becoming the favored shopping destinations of the fashion set certainly weren’t on my 2022 bingo card. But as always, the industry always likes to keep me on my toes. I can’t scroll through TikTok and Instagram without seeing an influencer, editor, or just an average consumer posting about their latest purchase from one of the three. And with every post I see, I become increasingly impressed. Our team has even gone the lengths of testing various pieces from the retailers and has given nothing but high praises for the fit and quality.
Out of both professional and personal curiosity, I went through every single page on each site and ended up with a thorough fall wish list. Everything below is not only on-trend but is also basic enough to be worn for years. Last but not least, all the pieces look triple the price. If you don’t believe me, keep scrolling and see for yourself. (And be prepared to click “add to cart” along the way.)
