J. Crew is one of those brands that never cease to amaze me. I first fell in love with their effortlessly cool aesthetic in college (after subscribing to their monthly magazine) and I’ve incorporated their brilliant styling techniques into my wardrobe ever since. With creative director and fashion icon Jenna Lyons at the helm, the prep-based fashion house continues to inspire fashion lovers with their quirky takes on closet essentials including versatile oxford stripes, tailored trousers, work-friendly button downs and their signature statement pencil skirts.
The debut of the multifarious Spring 2017 collection gave style mavens the full play-by-play on how to utilize everyday pieces while transforming classic and conventional mainstays into street style gold. So, keep scrolling to check out my favorite ensembles that can easily transition from #Runway to #RealWay in no time flat!
1) Slay to the heavens in a Canadian tuxedo!
Double denim is always a super chic way to embrace the monochromatic look. Add a fitted chambray, high-waist jeans and a colored pointy pump to spice up you next weekend look.
2) Go sheer!
Next time you slip into your trusty white collared button-down, try layering a sheer shirt on top to throw in a pinch of unpredictable sass.
3) Shimmer and shine with sequins.
Who says sequins aren’t suitable for daytime? Shine bright like a diamond in a silver embellished dress and round out your rock with fancy flats!
4) Be flirty and fabulous in pink.
And, don’t forget, a head-to-toe pink look will instantly upgrade your sartorial prowess from zero to one-hundred, real quick.
5) Keep it simple with ruffles and stripes.
Embrace the warmer temps and pair a striped off-the-shoulder top with a voluminous, flowy skirt. Intense curls are just the icing on the cake…
6) Get messy with the details!
If you’re more of a risk-taking fashionista, don the “splattered paint” trend! Crisp, tailored accents (such as sophisticated blouses and structured blazers) will work as an interesting juxtaposition between aesthetics.
