J.Crew rolled out a new spring collection this month, and even though it’s full of cotton pieces and sleeveless shirts, you don’t have to wait for 70 degree weather to wear it. One of the new pieces we particularly like is this exaggerated crewneck shift dress featuring petals of tulle on the shoulder. Easily make this a winter item by wearing it with leggings and a long boyfriend sweater. And if the lilac color is too bright, don’t worry — it also comes in New York’s favorite color, black.
