Dress Like J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons in Three Easy Steps, Because Oprah Says So

Thanks to Marine for letting us know about a recent interview on Oprah with J.Crew's executive creative director Jenna Lyons. Oprah shares with us her favorite J.crew shoes which are the latest styles: Julienne Leather Hills ($198) and my personal favorite Alecia Platform Peep Toes ($275).
Jenna gave us some tips how to rock J.Crew style:
1. Opposites Attract. Jenna rocked mixed prints look by pairing this timeless Vintage Bateau Top ($36) with sequin pants. And she made it work.

2. Make a statement with jewelry. No wonder J.Crew has some of the best chunky, sparkly, eye-catching jewelry – Jenna says she lives for statement pieces. We agree – and think the Crystal Glamour bracelet ($70) and FENTON/FALLON™ for J.Crew Carrington crystal chains necklace ($175) are just beautiful and edgy at the same time.

3. Borrow from the boys. If you’re look is head to toe girly, Jenna says grab something from your boyfriend’s closet. A military jacket, like the one she wore Oprah – the Solid Lieutenant Jacket ($98) is a great way to add texture and style to any feminine get-up.

I must say I love getting styling tips from Jenna because she is just AWESOME! I love that she doesn't follow any trends and just has her own thing going. I finally purchased the Solid Lieutenant Jacket and I just love it. Its very different from what I'm used to (belted or waisted jackets and coats) but the look is sooo J.Crew! The jacket is very light and easy to wear. It goes with pretty much any outfit and fits true to size.
Thanks for sharing Marine.
