Joe Fresh Comes to JCPenney

spring trends, affordable spring trends {Joe Fresh boxy top and color denim with ankle zipper, $29 each}

If you’re not familiar with Joe Fresh, don’t worry, you’re not alone. The Canadian retailer opened up shop in NYC in late 2011 and offered colorful, affordable pieces. I like to compare it to a mash up of H&M {in terms of prices and amazing sales} and Express {perfect mix of casual and work appropriate gear}.

Now thanks to a collaboration with JCPenney, this is the first time Joe Fresh will be available nationwide. Starting tomorrow, March 15, JCP will be stocking select pieces from Joe Fresh. And instead of the “designer collaborations” that quickly come and go, the partnership with Joe Fresh is expected to be an ongoing thing, available in close to 700 JCPenney stores and online.

If you’re not in New York or New Jersey where there’s access to a Joe Fresh stand alone store, this collaboration is perfect, especially if you’re in the market for affordable spring and summer styles.

Take a look at some Joe Fresh pieces you’ll find at JCPenney.

how to wear black and white Last week I showed you the 5 wardrobe staples to buy at thrift stores, and this week it’s all about the trends. Every season the runways of New York, Paris and London dictate what’s in and what’s out for the coming months. And though everyone clamors for what’s “new,” some of these trends are simply revamped classics that are just having a moment. Like seriously, when is leather not on trend?

And this is a great thing if you’re in to {or want to get in to thrifting}. If you’re not willing to invest in a trend, the secondhand store is a great option, but also, since fashion is so cyclical, you’ll find many of the “new” trends at your Goodwill, Salvation Army or your thrift store of choice.

Check out three easy to find and easy to wear trends you can score from a thrift store.
