I have to give props to J.Crew for staying true to its original image season after season and still managing to churn out collections that are unexpectedly refreshing. I love that I can walk in to the store and see a classic, black cashmere turtleneck on one mannequin and turn to find a pair of flashy yellow silk ruffled shorts on another.

Whatever your personal preference, J.Crew’s Spring 2011 Collection addresses your craving for the rebellion of rule-breaking trends without the typical downside of an end-of-the-season expiration date.
