* Amazon and J.Crew just released a new collaboration line
* Well-made, competitively priced essentials
* These are the stand-out pieces from the new collection
For a few years, J.Crew Mercantile has been a well-kept secret with thrifty fashionistas and budget shoppers. They sell classic J.Crew essentials, as well as their own exclusive pieces, at lower prices than regular J.Crew stores. However, taking advantage of J.Crew Mercantile’s great prices used to mean a trip outside town.
Now, Amazon has taken notice of J.Crew Mercantile’s potential. The online behemoth has just launched an exclusive online collaboration with Mercantile, offering some great pieces on Amazon.com. This means you get some of the best budget-friendly fashion on the market delivered directly to your doorstep.
Check out our top picks from the new collaboration below.
1. J.Crew Mercantile Women’s Skinny Jean
Denim under $50 is always worth checking out, and unlike some budget denim, these jeans are built to last. They feature a cotton blend for all-day comfort, and a versatile style that you can wear, well, all day.
2. J.Crew Mercantile Women’s Puffer Vest
This puffer vest will be your go-to layering tool this fall and winter. It’s super lightweight, surprisingly warm, and easy to wear with jeans and boots or office attire.
3. J.Crew Mercantile Women’s Stripe Sweater
Spongebob Squarepants once said, “the best time to wear a striped sweater is all the time.” He was correct, especially if that striped sweater is this lightweight, ruffle-accented stripe sweater from Mercantile. A classic mix of French girl cool with a nautical, All-American classic.
4. J.Crew Mercantile Men’s Graphic Shirt
This graphic shirt is a spring/summer essential, but during the cold months, it’s a great layering tool as well. Wear it over a tee, or under a sweater to add some summer-time fun to a winter outfit.
5. J.Crew Mercantile Men’s Slim Fit Jean
Mercantile’s timeless slim-fit men’s jeans are a modern staple. Their wash is great because it’s rugged enough to wear with tees and sneakers on the weekend, but also sophisticated enough to wear with a button-up and chelsea boots.
6. J.Crew Mercantile Men’s Quilted Vest
You can never have too many versatile layering pieces during the fall, and this quilted vest is definitely a good one to have at the ready. We recommend dressing it up a little with a button-up shirts, chinos, and a nice pair of shoes or boots.
