Now that the weather is starting to warm up, just a a little in New York, I can finally start my search for spring essentials. This includes more crop tops, wedge wedges and, of course, dresses. From floral maxi styles to mini dresses you can throw on when you have nothing to wear, the native Californian in me loves wearing them all. And if you’re like me and want to freshen up your warm wardrobe on a hot day, J-Crew is a style goldmine thanks to their huge spring savings event, dubbed The Big Spring Event.
From now until April 11, the retailer is offering 30% off hundreds of its styles. This includes everything from denim jackets and top-rated sneakers to tailored shorts and pants. But it was the dresses and sandals that really caught my attention. In fact, some of the brand’s best-selling maxi and midi dresses, as well as others spring essentials were slashed by 50 percent. Yes, you read that right. For example, you can take home a dress for less than $50, like this Broken-In jersey ruffled mini dress which is available for just $35.
