A collared shirt and chinos is a timeless look. I've worn variations of this outfit since middle school, and year after year it still looks cute! I gravitate towards this outfit when I'm looking for something comfortable yet still put together; it's also great for when situations where you want to look conservative but fun, for example, hanging out with your boyfriend's family.
Although, since I'm younger I typically lean towards the 3 inch chino shorts rather than 4 inches like pictured here. I just feel like they fit my body type and age better.
If you're looking for the J.Crew look but don't want to pay the big bucks, J.Crew Factory has some super cute pieces! Sometimes I think they're cuter than the items sold in actual J.Crew stores, but due to the lower prices, the pieces aren't quite as good quality. The only piece I would recommend getting through the actual J.Crew store rather than the Factory store is the chino shorts; they are much softer and better quality! Other than that, I think all the pieces at J.Crew Factory are fantastic! I'll link some of my favorites below.
