J. Crew Commander-In-Chief Jennifer Lyons recently issued her top picks from their Fall 2011 offerings, styling items already available on the website into anytime-appropriate looks. Known for their easy, simple, and classic mix-and-match separates, the retail giant favored by Michelle Obama didn't dissapoint with it's bright colors and textured knits. Lyons even included a list of 'Do's and Dont's' with her top picks:
"DO mix hot hues together. Classic silhouettes in coral and fuschia make a chic combo. DON'T BE AFRAID to use leopard as an accent."
"DO mix tonal neutrals. DON'T BE AFRAID to soften the looks with a shot of baby pink."
"DO embrace the sweater dress. DON'T FORGET the eye-popping accessory."
"DO buy a pencil skirt. DON'T BE AFRAID to dress it down with a relaxed slouchy top."
"DO invest in a blast of color. DON'T BE AFRAID if it's an outerwear piece."
