J.Crew Party Dresses: Something to Celebrate

Posted on February 23 by Susan Brierly Bush

If you’re a J.Crew fan like I am, you already know that the preppy-chic retailer decided to call it quits with its bridal collection last November. But you might not know that the company is now focusing its creative efforts on joyful, classic party dresses in captivating patterns and designs. The collection recently debuted to positive reviews and I can’t wait to slip into one of their 21 adorable silhouettes.

The quintessentially J.Crew line, dubbed “Ready to Party,” is chock-full of strapless gowns, ruffled dresses, gingham crop tops, body suits, seersucker skirts and even whimsical ballgown-style skirts in billowy tulle. Price points range from about $90 to $300. Scout this collection and you might be surprised to find more than 60 dresses in 25 stunning colors. Who can resist these frocks in black, white, green, yellow, lavender, red, blue and yummy shades of pink?

These super-versatile, one-piece dresses and simpler separates are perfect for special occasions (think bridesmaid dresses for your wedding day!), while more casual looks in seersucker and cotton eyelet are just right for date nights and parties with friends.

The “Ready to Party” collection will start hitting stores in March (with more deliveries in April), but you can shop to your heart’s content right now online.
