She didn’t inherit it from me, but my daughter is excellent when it comes to accessorizing. One head-to-toe outfit gets more mileage than separates ever will. Over the last year, she’s become a loyal fan of Justice because they always seem to have hats, infinity scarves, handbags, shoes and other accessories that match cute clothing in season.
Her loyalty to the brand extends far beyond this. If there’s a girls’ birthday party, the gift must be from Justice. If she needs dancewear or volleyball gear, it’s one of the first places we go. Her friends all shop there, too, which makes “Twins Day” at school easy.
Parents will be glad to hear that back-t0-school season marks a transition to simpler pricing at Justice with the implementation of Style Buys where prices are too-good-to-be-true on everyday basics.
Our Justice catazine (catalog + magazine) arrived in the mail before our store visit, so she’d already made a mental note of several fall looks. However, in anticipation of our visit, our local Justice store at Westfield UTC pulled looks for that were completely accessorized from head-to-toe.
They nailed it.
In addition to back-to-school outfits on the rack specifically selected by theme, more fun awaited in the dressing room.
I’m pretty sure she would have been totally O.K. taking everything home. Forced by me to narrow her options, here are four of the many looks we loved.
Justice Outfit 1: Western-Themed Cuteness
This is my favorite outfit and I knew we were going to get it the second she tried it on. The entire thing is perfect for airplanes plus we’re going horseback riding in Colorado this weekend.
The plaid shirt, long tee, and soft jeggings are part of the new Justice Style Buys. The t-shirt suits her well because it’s long. We have trouble with t-shirts being too short or too baggy and this one is perfect for growing girls with long torsos.
The boots are just totally to-die-for (and a little bit of a splurge) but they do make the outfit so they came home with us.
Button Up Plaid Shirt
City Girl Graphic Long Tee
Lace-Up Back Rider Boots
Western Fringe Cross Body Bag
Really Cute Bow Headband (find in-store)
Justice Outfit 2: Comfortable Activewear
Layering colored tank tops below tees was certainly a theme and easy to do for an extra pop of color. I think we’ll go back for the hat as I didn’t realize that it’s so reasonably-priced for how cute it is.
Justice Positive Message Baseball Tee
Fitted Tank Top
Skinny Cuff Sweatpants
Embellished Varsity Jacket
Sequin Bow Cabbie Hat
Leopard Jogger Sneakers
Justice Outfit 3: Her Absolute Favorite
This outfit has been worn at least three times in the week she’s owned it. The scarf comes attached to the tee and it’s so, so cute.
Embellished Scarf 2fer
Pink Cami with Sequins
Lace Skirt with Built-in Shorts
Embellished Denim Vest
Shorty Embellished Strap Boots
Felt Floppy Hat
Justice Outfit 4: A Denim Dress I Would Wear
Seriously, this dress paired with these little booties and the hat is such a cute outfit. It would pair well with the brown boots above.
Denim Fit and Flare Dress
Shorty Embellished Strap Boots
Felt Floppy Hat
Justice Backpacks and Other School Gear
Backpacks, regardless of style, are $29. And, of course, they have matching lunchboxes, pencil pouches, water bottles and then some. After much deliberation, she picked the Multi Typography Rolling Backpack.
The other thing that I noticed right off the bat is that the store is less cluttered and overwhelming, at least for me as a parent. It turns out that this is part of their move to simplify which I completely applaud.
We left with the Western-themed outfit complete with headband and boots along with the black hat, denim jacket and skirt outfit that was her favorite. And, the outfit she wore into the store, including the volleyball headband, is from Justice, too.
The favorite Justice outfit was a hit at science camp yesterday. I thought the hat would be too much but it was so sunny that in the end, I was grateful that she had it.
