What is up with J. Crew? Whoever they hired to design for them is quite a maverick- it seems, more and more, that I turn to J. Crew for long-lasting basics. There price has jumped up a little with their new creativity, but you can still find some terrific affordable pieces to pepper your wardrobe with. Currently, I am obsessing over their Toggle Sweater. Inspired by my coat pick of the season-the Paddington coat- this woolly sweater has leather and toggle closures, which makes me grin. I love that you get all the style of my favorite cover-up, and you can rock it all day, indoors and out. With it's simple shape and large hood, it seems like the ideal winter sweater.
