J. Crew still feels very new to me as I’m from the UK.
I’ve learnt a lot about the brands from friends in the US who rave about how great it is, and from Net-A-Porter.com who added the collection to their virtual shelves a few months ago.
On Tuesday I finally saw what all the fuss was about during their Spring 2012 presentation during New York Fashion Week.
As someone who loves colour I was in heaven viewing the beautiful mix of gorgeous rainbow brights ranging from red and yellow and pink and green, orange and purple and blue.
I loved the mixing casual and dressy pieces. A perfect example is the denim shirt paired with the rainbow sequin skirt above.
An ivory sequinned jacket was worn over a denim jacket and paired with slouchy shorts. A dressy polka dot shirt with a neck-tie was paired with a striped coat and denim shorts.
Another interesting pairing was a mix of prints like the striped top with a paisley print skirt and leopard print heels.
I was most impressed with the bold accessories, which included leopard print heels, bright coloured totes, striped clutches, bangles and sunglasses with colourful frames.
Celebrity attendees: Beyonce Knowles and Solange Knowles
Who I See Wearing This Collection: Taylor Swift, Elle Fanning, Victoria Justice, Chloe Moretz, Miranda Cosgrove, Emma Stone, Anna Kendrick, Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska, Teresa Palmer and Kristen Stewart (wishful thinking)
