Style Me Friday Inspiration, Week 10: Daytime Sparkle!

Happy Monday, Lovelies! This week’s Style Me Friday inspiration comes courtesy of the ever stylish Jenna Lyons! Over the last several years we’ve seen Jenna and the uber stylish team at J. Crew take the brand from  ”that other-kinda-preppy-place-sorta-like-Banana-Replublic” to “OMG, I want to wear that entire look straight out of the catalog.” Seriously, I wouldn’t consider myself to be a super classic or preppy dresser, but the styling over at J. Crew is kinda amazing! They seem to have mastered the art of mixing and matching classic with edgy, quirky, ultra femme separates and accessories, for looks that are fun and just slightly unexpected.  This week’s inspiration look, submitted by my girl Alicia over at Chica Fashion is a perfect demonstration of J. Crew’s signature styling — one part classic with a simple striped tee + one part glam thanks to one kick-a** pair of sequin trousers.  I. LOVE. IT.

So, this week’s inspiration is all about daytime sparkle! I know that sequin pants are definitely not the kind of item that everyone just has lying around, but this look isn’t totally about the pants per se...it’s about rethinking the way we wear sequins!  So, you may not have sequin pants, but maybe you have a sequin skirt or shorts? or a sequin top? or a sequin dress?  The challenge is to take those sequins and make them work for day!

Style Me Friday & How to Link Up

  1. Every Monday (today), I will select and post the Style Me Friday inspiration look that I’ll be recreating later in the week. (below)
  2. You will also recreate the look yourself, and post it on your blog, facebook, instagram, or wherever!*
  3. On Friday, I will post my normal Style Me Friday recreation  AND host a link up so you can share your recreated version of the look, too!
  4. Next Monday, we’ll start all over again!
*You do not have to have a blog to participate in the link up! You just need a camera (or a camera phone!). The linky widget allows you to link up to a specific blog post if you have a blog, or you can just manually upload a picture and link to the social network of your choice if you don’t have a blog.)

*Reminder! Your version of the inspiration look does not need to be literal.  It just needs to capture the spirit of the look.  So have fun with it! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! :)

    Jenna Lyons has great style, and I love this inspiration pic! This will be my first Style Me Friday link up, and as I definitely don't have sparkly pants, I'll have to be creative :-)
