Style Advice from Jenna Lyons

A few months ago, J. Crew president and executive creative director Jenna Lyons visited the Oprah show to talk about her incredible job and gave a few simple and translatable personal style tips:
  • Make a statement with jewelry
  • Balance feminine pieces with tomboy accents
  • Wear opposites
  • Mix textures
These tips are so easy and universal. They can apply to any style, not just the J. Crew look (which I happen to love).

Jane and Judy Aldridge are practically the queens of statement jewelry (not to mention, fabulous shoes). They use proportion, color, and unusual subject matter to pull outfits together with their jewelry.

Kim Kardashian via Olsen Twin News

I love how Kim Kardashian uses this broad-shouldered menswear blazer to balance her slim black ankle pants and adorable feminine bow pumps. A kind of casual update on the early 90s shoulder pad look.

The pieces of this outfit are so random, and the style is pulled from all over the place! A preppy black headband and belt, classic denim shirt, hannah montana pants, and jungle logger boots. It would be hard to put more opposites into one look!

Wool, knit, patent, tights, leather... Diane Kruger makes this nearly all-black ensemble look fantastic and not at all goth by mixing so many interesting textures.

Jenna's tips translate to interior style as well. Tune in tomorrow for advice how to translate these tips at home!
