Jenna Lyons: I love sparkle
Friday Dec 23 2011
Jenna Lyons is proud to be a "sequin junkie".
The creative director of American company J. Crew was asked to comment on several of the firm's key looks in a new interview. Among them was a red sequinned vest with matching skirt, which Jenna is particularly fond of.
"I'm a huge sequin junkie! What I love about this look is this deep, deep burgundy wine colour. I like this pencil skirt worn with flat shoes, paired with a button-down shirt, or worn as a matching set," she said. "It feels a little bit old school, having two pieces make up a dress."
The vest is a longer-length one, while the matching skirt falls to just below the knee.
If wearing matching pieces sounds like too much, the fashion star has another tip for breaking things up.
"Why not wear burgundy sequins with a mint cashmere sweater?" she asked Glamour magazine.
Other key items Jenna advises investing in for the coming season include a shrunken camel jacket, a bright red polo neck jumper and striped knitwear.
"A touch of geek is also good," she added. "I love [our] pleated camel dress. Look to uniforms for inspiration."
