No frills, no fluff.

When plotting what to pair my new J-Crew Pixie Pants with, I looked to the most likely of inspirational sources, Creative Director Jenna Lyons. As evidenced in the entire J-Crew collection, her strategy is crystal clear: Keep it simple. Whether pattern clashing or uniting classics like a blazer and jeans, Jenna's looks are always effortlessly sophisticated with an understated edge. The ideal style description, if you ask me.

With black-rimmed glasses in tow, I mimicked fashion's ultimate cool girl by pairing the pixie pants with a few wardrobe essentials: a Gap denim shirt, black heels and Anthropologie statement earrings. No frills, no fluff. Just the classics.

The saying, "You are what you wear" rang particularly true for me that day. I felt articulate and ready to tackle the world, which is exactly what I envisioned channeling Jenna would be.

  12. I like how you broke the outfit down in this post. Restraint can often make as much of an impact as over-the-top outfits, and it ensures YOU continue to shine through.
