Jenna Lyons Makes Cowboy Tuxedos And Green Purses Cool At Fashion Week
September 20, 2010
NYMag’s The Cut blog caught up with J.Crew president Jenna Lyons outside Lincoln Center at New York Fashion Week wearing a denim top, skinny jeans, and a green quilted Chanel bag – a look that somehow stole our hearts, despite being otherwise known as a Cowboy Tuxedo (or Canadian Tuxedo).
Usually reserved for Jay Leno while “Jay-Walking,” the head-to-toe denim looks shockingly chic on Jenna. It’s no wonder HuffPostStyle Tweeted a pic, and other celebrities have tried it since:
Liv Tyler was then picture rocking a similar top and bottom jeans ensemble at the G-STAR RAW show. Surprisingly, the vest and jeans look is cool and flattering for fall. Try the look for yourself (suspenders optional):
Tuck this J.Crew Selvedge chambray shirt ($98) into a colorful skirt or wear it long over skinny jeans like Jenna. You’re golden either way.
Get the look for under-$20 (take that, Jenna) with this Old Navy Western Chambray shirt ($19.99, down from $24.50).
We’re 99% sure these are the exact jeans Jenna wore to Fashion Week. These MiH Jeans® for J.Crew breathless skinny jeans ($233) have all the right fading and the skinny style is cropped enough to wear with heels, Christian Louboutin or otherwise.
If you’re not on a Chanel or Hermes budget, get the look for infinitely less, with this awesome B. Makowsky Crossbody bag ($128). Pair it with blue like Jenna Lyons and Rachel Zoe and the color will really pop.
For a more everyday green, this Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Natasha Messenger bag ($328) is perfect. Sling it over a soft cashmere sweater or cardigan and skinny jeans for a pulled-together, Jenna-approved fall look.
If you’re not a socialite or celeb like Jenna, but want to feel like one – a classy Tory Burch mini bag ($250) will do the trick. Wear it as an everyday bag with jeans or as a going-out clutch with a little black dress and booties.
