Fashion Week: Lands’ End

Fashion Week rolls on with the Friends & Family Sale at Lands’ End going on through 11:59 CST tomorrow: 30% off your entire order! If you roll your eyes when I say Lands’End and think adventure outfitters, you are missing out!! Yes, there are still squall jackets and yes there are still things your grandmother would like but there’s so much more. I remember years ago when I used to buy khakis and rugby shirts for my husband from J. Crew. They’ve certainly undergone a transformation and, while not quite as dramatic an about face, so has Lands’ End. While still my go to for jeans and knit tops, a lot of the more fashiony pieces remind me of a J. Crew/Ralph Lauren mashup. Let’s take a look at some of my current favorites.

Harbor Trench Coat in Meadowland Green
Regular $99.00, Sale $69.30

A trench coat is a classic but that doesn’t mean you have to play it safe. I love the brilliant green and oversized buttons on this beauty! And something about the super-wide lapels and high back collar give this trench a very Audrey-esque quality. Also available in Crimson Dawn or if you’re keeping it classic, Black & Warm Khaki.

Cotton Duffle Jacket
Regular $139.00, Sale $97.30

What says preptastic more than a duffle jacket? This cotton one is just the thing to see you through some of the cooler days & nights of spring. Pop it on over a de rigueur striped tee with some red skinny jeans and cute flats and you’re set for the day: from brunch to shopping to drinks.

Waterfall Cape Sweater
Regular $89.00, Sale $62.30

This one definitely has a whiff of Ralph Lauren to me. A little less rustic perhaps but all-American has through and through. A long-sleeved tee, dark jeans, espadrilles and a tote and you are ready for any adventure the weekend throws your way. 

Short Sleeve Chambray Tunic Dress
Regular $89.00, $62.30

This is the perfect blank-slate of a dress! Chambray is one of my favorite fabrics and there are so many ways to go with this one. I love that neckerchiefs are coming back! Take a cue from the model and tie a bright silk square around your neck or add a belt or slip a long sleeved striped tee underneath. This dress can unleash your inner stylist!

 Fringe Trim Skirt

Currently on Sale for $44.99, After Discount $31.49

Okay, now tell me that this above the knee, plaid, fringed skirt doesn’t look like it wandered over from J. Crew? It hits all the right style points but look at that price!!

Dark Indigo Wash Pencil Skirt
Regular $69.00, Sale $48.30

Despite what the description on the website says, this is not a jean skirt. This is a classically styled, subtly sexy pencil skirt that just happens to be made out of a dark washed denim. A fun twist on a wardrobe basic.

Ponté Pencil Skirt in Hot Pink
Regular $59.00, Sale $44.30

And speaking of pencil skirts, how about this hot peony pink number in oh so comfortable ponté knit? Pair it with a classic button down shirt and neutral heels and let the color speak for itself! Also available in classic black.

Woven A-line Skirt in Radiant Navy
Regular $89.00, Sale $62.30

Pencils not your style? How about this ladylike A-line? Fully lined with a geometric eyelet overlay, this one can definitely go from work to casual and back again with just a change of top or accessories. Also available in eggshell white.

Mixed Stripe Elbow Sleeve Top in Ivory/Deep Sea Thin Stripe
Regular $35.00, Sale $24.50

I’ve already confessed my abiding love for striped knit tops, but, oh, these stripes! Horizontal in the front, vertical in the back, diagonal on the sleeves and fabulous all around! Also available in Ivory/Crimson Dawn Thin Stripe.

Supima Print Cardigan Sweater in Ivory Spots
Regular $79.00, $55.30

Lands’ End Supima Cardigans are one of my staples with new colors and prints every season. This modern mixed spot is definitely on my short list to add to my cardigan collection. And since you know my love of twin sets, there’s a matching short sleeved jewel neck pullover to complete the look.

Chino Tie Waist Pants in Smokey Olive
Regular $79.00, Sale $55.30

Boyfriend fit? Check! Tie Waist? Check! Olive, the not so boring neutral? Check! Your closet needs these chinos!

Mid Rise Kick Crop Jeans
Regular $69.00, Sale $48.30

Oh how I love my Lands’ End denim! Quality, consistent sizing, waist not too high, not too low and priced so reasonably that if I want to try one of this seasons trendy silhouettes, the kick crop, I can do so without hesitation! These will be in my closet soon!

Fringe Slide Sandals in Denim
Regular $65.00, Sale $45.50

There’s a definite denim shoe trend this season, J. Crew and Talbot’s both have adorable versions as well, but how cute are these fringey denim slides? This just might be THE shoe of summer!

Slip On Sneakers in Pineapple Stripe
Regular $59.00, Sale $41.30

Do you know what a synonym for fun is? Slip on striped pineapple sneakers, that’s what!

Leather Tassel Belt in Crimson Dawn
Regular $45.00, Sale $31.50

This is another item that looks like it snuck over from J. Crew or maybe even Kate Spade! I mean, honestly, who could resist a bright leather belt with darling little tassels dangling down? Also available in Dandelion and Navy.


So, do you agree that it might be time to rethink Lands’ End? What’s your favorite thing from this list? 

Until next time fashionably yours, 

XOXO
