Lands’ End Spring is So Good

The other day my best friend texted me about Lands' End. She received a Lands' End spring catalog in the mail and found so many things she thought were stylish and wearable. I too was impressed, but it's easy to be swayed by beautiful photography in beautiful locales with models posed just so. I had to go online and look at the Lands' End spring collection. The flatlays, the stiff models, and the reviews. And even still, I'm finding Lands' End spring is so good.

As my friend texted, “Maybe Lands' End is finally finding a groove.” It feels that way. Lands' End used to be a favorite place not just for quality outerwear and great swimsuits, but apparel. I could find pieces that were well made and stylish for the office, for the weekend, and in between.

But in recent years, Lands' End has been hit or miss. Style is a bit dated and frumpy, fit is inconsistent, color and fabric choices haven't been in tune with the current sartorial climate and didn't even feel classic or timeless. But this spring feels like Lands' End of the past. Classic, but also timely. Functional, but also with a splash of style and current trends.

This is what I want from Lands' End. Pieces that are quality, classic, and can mix with more unique pieces to fit a range of personal style aesthetics. As someone who is a mix of classic, rock, and eclectic, I look to Lands' End for the wardrobe workhorses like Breton striped shirts, jeans, sweaters, and casual dresses. And this spring, Lands' End has all of this and more.

Yes Lands' End! Bring on the Supima t-shirt in a clean and classic stripe, the wide-leg chinos that will just get better with each wash and wear, the classic trench that is both lined and water-resistant.

I own these jeans and find them comfortable, durable, and stylish. I like the high neckline and trim of this ribbed tank: a spring and summer staple. For me, a 7″ length chino short is not frumpy, but will keep legs comfortable and won't be likely to ride up. And Lands' End makes classic shirts that resist wrinkles and fit a woman's curves.

Lands' End was a go-to for years for spring and summer dresses I could throw on with sneakers or my Birks and feel put together without much thought. Once home, I could throw these dresses in the wash and know they'd come out in ready-to-wear condition.

The striped dress above, available in Misses and Plus, also comes in a pink stripe, a black and white print, and solid black. A nylon/spandex blend means that black version can be your not-so-little black dress for work, funerals, day weddings, and date nights. And all the prints are great for easy-care spring and fall days and wrinkle-free travel.

Speaking of travel, this stretch cotton blend maxi in Misses, Petite, Tall, and Plus and four color options is so festive and chic. And for more relaxed of workplaces, weekends, and day occasions, I'm digging this crepe dress with pockets (Misses and Plus) and this Tencel shirtdress (Misses and Plus).

I'm really digging the Lands' End linen collection. I own this tunic shirt and use it as a beach coverup. I love there are now linen shorts to match, and at a very wearable 7″ inseam. And how cute is this linen vest and pants combo? And this linen blazer and matching tailored shorts? Super chic.

Of course I am sharing all this and have yet to make a Lands' End spring wardrobe purchase. The pieces are classics that at this moment I don't need (though I am tempted!). I know many of you adore Land's End and shop there often. What do you think of the Lands' End spring collection? Any misses? Any winners that I didn't mention? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. I found a great Lands End Swimsuit at Target this week. At my store it looks like they’re only caring swim related items (so far) but it was a great price point for the quality.

  2. Great post and it got me going to Lands End for the first time in a decade or more! They do have some great items and I’ll be placing an order. I need a red short sleeve V-neck T (hope they have one as literally NOONE else does) and I really like the striped T-shirt dress you posted – diagonal stripes = YEA! Thank you!

  3. Nearly twenty years ago — I want to say it was 2005 or 2006 — Lands’ End did this really amazing long-sleeved cashmere tee. The cashmere was the perfect weight, didn’t pill, the cut felt modern and not frumpy, the cuffs and hems were tubular, not ribbed, for a clean look. I can still see the magazine ad — a woman in a grass-green cashmere tee, a silk tie-fabric d-ring belt and loose khakis, sitting cross-legged on a bed and tossing her baby.

    I had those great tees in all their neutrals. Moths got them. I still dream about someone at Lands’ End remembering the Sid Mashburn years and reviving that particular product. One can hope, with this aesthetic turn, someone at Lands’ End is raiding the archives for the greatest hits.

    1. Do you remember Lands’ End Canvas? It was like their hipper younger version. I had a gray and navy striped Canvas tee I LOOOOVED, perfect weight, fit, sleeve length. I was devastated when it got a hole in it!

  4. What I wouldn’t give for Lands End to being back the ponte knit dresses! The sheath ponte knit dresses were my go-to work foundation pieces.

    1. My daughter started her corporate wardrobe with those dresses! Navy, black, patterns… affordable, washable, and so classy!

      I spent over an hour at our tiny Lands End store yesterday and bought a lot. Linen cropped pants, linen shorts, a beautiful linen shirt in beige that is just as nice as my LL Bean linen shirts, sports knit crops in navy, black, and white, tank tops… Everything fit well, even though I’m larger than I would like to be this year. It all has an old-prep vibe that I’m comfortable with, and will mix and match with everything I already have. I tried on the linen blazer and ordered it in my size. The only thing I wasn’t happy with was the maxi dresses. They’re not very flattering on my upper torso.

  5. Lands End now offers returns via Staples stores and other mainstream venues.
    You can pay the return shipping fee or waive the return fee by taking a merchandise credit.

  6. This reminds me of the short-lived Lands End Canvas line. I loved that line, and never understood why they did away with it.

  7. LE runs large on me, even the petites. I agree with others who complained about the erratic sizing. I’ve ordered the same top in different colors, and it looks like it was made by two different factories.
    But I am really tempted by the rib knit tank top. It is a very interesting design.
    I figure that paying return shipping is the cost of doing business online. There are fewer brick and mortar stores around, so it’s hard to figure sizing. I wish online stores would publish more detailed measurements (garment length, sleeve length, pit to pit measurement) as some ebay sellers do.

  8. I like 3/4 length sleeve casual tops. i bought all 5 ways Lands End offered the shirt. I love the feel of them but they kind of look like pajamas and the prints are not the cutest. But I don’t care, they suit my very casual lifestyle. And I also thought there were some cute clothes in the catalog.

    1. I ended up getting linen pants in flax and white. It may be just me but my order wouldn’t go through using the links or otherwise. Had to call and submit an order, and haven’t done that in years. Anywho, hoping the pants fit well. Linen is perfect for hot, humid summers.

  9. I bought last year’s version of that cotton hooded jacket on a whim (in store & clearance) and I can say it’s fantastic and has become one of my favorite pieces! It is super lightweight and soft so great for warmer days when I just want another layer. While it doesn’t provide a lot of warmth on its own, it is also roomy enough to layer over a big sweater which makes it a wardrobe workhorse – definitely an unexpected win.

  10. I’m tempted to try some of these – I’ve lost some weight recently and could really use a wardrobe revamp (and even my other size clothes are all getting pretty worn!). It’s tough when working from home full time and living in leggings/tshirts!

    I do have a Lands End close enough to me that I can order online and return at the store w/o the fees mentioned above (which I had no idea!).

  11. I bought some LE swimsuits recently at Costco. I love their swimwear and rash guards. The pieces you showed are really nice basics, but I wouldn’t order them, because I can’t trust LE’s fit, and they charge me for a try on (as in, return shipping). In the past, I tried twice to get this charge waived, once when the size was laughably off, and once for absolutely awful quality. In each case, the rep refused to the point of rudeness. It’s a shame, because these look nice. But luckily, there are plenty of places to shop!

  12. After years of being a satisfied customer the past several years have been a real disappointment. Fabric quality, colors, and fit have been way off for me. I am hoping this is a turn around! ( I did order the linen tunic in navy, in my usual size petite L, and it is a generous fit but acceptable to me.)
    I enjoy your reviews (and pictures) because we seem to have similar body shapes/sizes and it really helps me to get a clearer idea of how items may look. Thank you!

  13. I felt the same way about Lands’ End, and I just ordered both the wide leg chino and the linen wide leg pants you wrote about. I sent both back, partly because it had a strange flare from the calf down – it didn’t have a smooth straight wide leg. And I wanted sooo much to like them, since I got them 40% off. Will look for the breton shirt, though, since I need a replacement. I will probably go to the store directly to try on.

  14. I’ll have to see it to believe it. After 40 years of shopping Lands End, I’ve found that their attempts at anything stylish are always “off.” Given their high shipping, high free ship minimum, non free returns/exchanges I limit my purchases to basics I know will fit, unless I can purchase/return at Kohls. Also the quality is nowhere like it used to be. Tshirts, tanks, swim, coverup dresses that I live in around the house in summer.

    1. I purchased a really nice pale yellow rain coat from Lands End this spring that I just love. It’s lightweight and packable but also so functional. The beautiful soft yellow makes it so pretty for a raincoat and brightens up a grey day. As a plus size woman it’s nice to have this in a cheery colorful option not just navy and black.
