Looking on point from the boardroom to the ballroom is an art form reserved for the most talented of fashion chameleons, and when you find an outfit that's worked to perfection – straight from an editors meeting to the crimson mile, that kind of style success should come with an award! That's why this week, we're shining a light on one of our most infamous girl bosses with serious power dressing potential – the one and only, Jenna Lyons
The belle of big business, the geek chic style guru is renowned for her straight talking attitude and classy casual red carpet presence. The creative powerhouse behind the illustrious J.Crew fashion institution for more than half a decade, our girl knows just how to work it on and off the street, so when we had a VAUGHAN 'snap' moment, we knew we had to share her style ensemble with the world!
Known as the woman who dresses America, Jenna's sense of style has become synonymous with elegant luxury and pioneering the off-duty look. With a wardrobe resplendent with smart silk shirts and tapered pants, there's no denying she's a woman after our own hearts! Snapped in a rare moment without her iconic square framed specs, this outstanding haute glam ensemble is right up our street...
Championing rich ingots of gold and disco sequins, this party perfect ensemble seamlessly transitions from work to play. Using a formal style staple as her fashion foundation, this VAUGHAN silk pussy bow blouse (minus the detachable bow for this ensemble) adds a strong office allure that can be paired with any number of traditional work wear separates. In this instance, the stylish silk shirt perfectly offsets the instant glamour of these high shine gold track pants.
A perfect pairing of monochrome with subtle everyday staples, these modern alchemy pants add a touch of vintage glitz, updating this simple casual look from laid-back to luscious with added bling. Worn in unison with an asymmetric leather biker jacket, this lesson in layering shows how textural style statements can work together to create a next generation classy red carpet look. Not one to be seen without a deluxe detail to offset the style narrative, Jenna shows us how effective a structured clutch can be – using this gorgeous metallic number as case in point.
Renowned for styling her own collection from J. Crew, it comes as no surprise to find these Disney Princess low-instep emerald green heels are a next season preview from her team's hotly anticipated collection.
Unlocking the secrets to timeless style, Jenna Lyons proves that investment staples stand the test of time. A faultless guide to working it for work or play, duality reigns supreme in this easy peasy, try at home design coup.
