Word on the street is that J.C.Penney is closing a bunch of stores and outlets and winding down its catalog. Sadness. So I’d like to take this opportunity to shed some light onto an oft misunderstood gem. Penney’s is so much more than your mother’s bargain basement store.
J.C.Penney has always been my destination for basics: tights, undies, socks, gloves, hats. And within the past few years they’ve upped their style game with the introductions of more fashioney brands.
Unfortunately, their online biz leaves something to be desired, so I urge you to give ol’ JCP a chance and visit an actual store.
Some brands to check out:
For classic, preppy staples: American Living, Liz Claiborne
For contemporary work separates: Jones Wear, Worthington
For weekend casual: A.N.A., Nicole by Nicole Miller
For trendier styles: I Heart Ronson, Bisou Bisou
