Jayma Mays looked super chic and on-trend in a purple Rebecca Minkoff outfit the Shop In Shop event in LA to celebrate the designer at Confederacy in LA last night.

She wore a fitted Rebecca Minkoff ‘Becky’ jacket and a Rebecca Minkoff puckered skirt.

Her accessories included an Elegantly Waisted orange snakeskin belt, a Rebecca Minkoff black crocodile clutch and black Jimmy Choo peep-toes.

Jayma chatted to me about what she loves about Rebecca Minkoff; sharing that she loves the bright, happy colours in the collection. She thinks Rebecca does the best pieces in flattering prints, which she’s found hard to find.

The ‘Glee’ actress and her stylist Ilaria Urbinati were kind enough share some insights on Jayma’s style:

On her favourite designers: “Burberry, Reem Acra, Brian Reyes, Brian Atwood shoes and Ippolita jewelry.”

On her favourite fashion moments: “Custom Burberry Prorsum at the 2010 Emmys , a chartreuse Brian Reyes dress at the Costume Designers Guild Awards and the outfit I wore to Fox’s All-Star Party 2010, which was just a cute plaid shirt with a hunter green skirt, neon yellow belt and gold Jimmy Choo’s. It was a fun look!”

On how her style changed since moving from Virginia to Los Angeles: “In Virginia I would wear jeans, vintage t-shirts and flip-flops all the time, it was horrible! I was just trying to look cute with no money so it was either Converse or flip flops. Now I feel like, if you have the opportunity to dress up, why not? I hardly ever do jeans anymore.”

Ilaria Urbinati describes Jayma’s style: “Jayma has really good personal taste, so that makes it easy! It’s quite East Coast Preppy, but now we’re a little dressier.”

On her summer essentials: “A Kate Spade basket weave bag that has a black bow on it that I carrying everything in – I use it almost every day, black ballet flats that are just classic and I can’t get enough of crisp white button-up shirts that are so essential because I can just throw them on and not think too much about it.”
