Dress Like J.Crew's Jenna Lyons in Three Easy Steps, Because Oprah Says So

If you’re a fan of J.Crew’s Jenna’s Picks (we know you are) – we hope you set your TiVo today because Jenna Lyons, J.Crew’s creative director, was on Oprah and dished out her essential fashion tips–while Oprah revealed her favorite J.Crew shoes:

Oprah wore these Julienne Leather Heels ($198) in “bronzed avocado” – we suggest you get them before her employees at Harpo (and the free world) snap them up. We like the gray “flannel” color (pictured above) – it’s a great neutral wardrobe option.

Oprah also loves these Alecia Leather Platform Peep Toes ($275)–she raved about how comfortable they are–no doubt they’ll be sold out soon if you don’t grab a pair.

Jenna gave us some tips:

1. Opposites Attract. Jenna rocked mixed prints look by pairing this timeless Vintage Bateau Top ($36) with sequin pants. And she made it work.

2. Make a statement with jewelry. No wonder J.Crew has some of the best chunky, sparkly, eye-catching jewelry – Jenna says she lives for statement pieces. We agree – and think the Crystal Glamour bracelet ($70) and FENTON/FALLON™ for J.Crew Carrington crystal chains necklace ($175) are just beautiful and edgy at the same time.

3. Borrow from the boys. If you’re look is head to toe girly, Jenna says grab something from your boyfriend’s closet. A military jacket, like the one she wore Oprah – the Solid Lieutenant Jacket ($98) is a great way to add texture and style to any feminine get-up.
