Now that the weather has begun to cool down, I've been reevaluating my wardrobe. In addition to donning longer pants like jeans and trousers, I've been opting for layered looks that incorporate cardigans, jackets, button-downs, and other picks that are easy to take on and off, or to button and un-button. This way, I know that as late summer and early fall weather fluctuates, I'll be prepared, no matter the temperature. And I'm in luck: Right now, J.Crew is taking 25 to 50 percent off hundreds of its wear-now styles, all of which rea perfect for this tricky time of year. 

J.Crew's wear-now concept is centered around classic pieces that can be worn for most occasions, personal or professional. These clothes are meant to transcend seasons and trends, and they're constructed so that they hold up year after year. With around 450 styles on sale, it's hard to know which of these items are most worth the investment, so I pored over the sales section to bring you the brand's best styles before the sale ends on August 21.
