When I think of November, warm, cozy nights immediately emerge. As the weather gradually grows colder and winter begins to rear its head, we take out our blankets and quilts and switch our summer dresses out for warmer, thicker options. This means sweaters, jackets, boots, vests, and more. And when it comes to shopping for these wardrobe staples, it's best to opt for premium fabrics like wool, cashmere, and cotton, which look better, feel better, and are made to last for ages.
If you need these essentials, you're in luck: J.Crew dropped their November collection, which features dozens of late-fall and winter styles designed to transcend sweater trends, keep you warm, and last year after year. Below are some of the best picks from the collection. All channel the brand's elevated, luxurious energy without sacrificing an ounce of comfort.
