The ultimate boss lady, Jenna Lyons, is the bad ass strong business woman running J. Crew. As the Creative Director and President of J. Crew, she has succeeded in modernizing the preppy brand, running the successful American company and keeping its influence relevant. We could go on about all her amazing accomplishments and career advice (and her stint on HBO’s ‘Girls as Hannah’s boss) but since this is a Lounge Icon post, let’s get into her signature look that we can’t get enough of. Her personal style is so unique that its influence is obvious in recent catalogs and ads more than ever. Quirky yet classic, she takes everyday separates and elevates them with her glam-meets-tomboy twist.
She stands 6 feet tall and usually has heels on. Her dark hair is straight, often sports a bright pop of lipstick, and is rarely seen without her signature black rimmed oversized glasses. Her combination of textures and prints are unexpected yet always work. Denim jackets under camel coats, stripes and flowers, even a bow-tie! Last year when Solange Knowles got married in New Orleans, Jenna wore an amazing feathered skirt and last minute threw on a white shirt to go with it, sparking outfit envy all over the internet. Jenna is endlessly inspiring and constantly setting trends. For this spring, take a nod from Jenna’s layering, and drape your jacket over your shoulders for the perfect in-between spring weather look. Top it off with a bright lip and bold glasses for an instant polished look. Take a look at some of our favorite looks of hers.
