Wait—Since When Does JC Penney Turn Out Such Cute Clothes? (Pictures)

We’re shocked. Shocked, we tell you.

When we think of JC Penney, “chic” isn’t necessarily the first word that comes to mind. Sure, the century-old department store has been turning out cost-value goods for as long as our grandmother has been around to remind us. And recent collabs with Spanish brand MNG by Mango and wondertwins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have sort of upped the store’s sartorial street cred. But we’ve scanned this lookbook six times now—and we still can’t believe it’s theirs.

Cropped pants! Bright blazers! Color-blocking! And most of it’s from Penney’s private in-house labels. It’s official: We’re crushing, and crushing hard.
