Jenna Lyons is a master, when it comes to preppy chic daywear outfits. The brand-new J.Crew spring/summer 2015 collection just launched at New York Fashion Week is the perfect embodiment of Lyons’ enchanting style and modern trends that blend together perfectly resulting into a series of easy, wearable and functional outfits. Masculine vibes meet femininity and oversized silhouettes in this collection, being so ideal for the contemporary fashioniser trying to make a statement in the streets. The way these stylish pieces are put together is the next key detail that makes this J.Crew collection show so fresh and cheerful.
The very fist vibe that you may notice in the J.Crew spring/summer 2015 collection is the abundance of the blue shade, coming in a variety of hues and looking so versatile and cool. This way, the first look presented features three shades of blue – navy matched with two different light hues of blue. This is a wonderful combo of striped organza navy blue wide-legged shorts in the sporty style, an oversized light blue shirt worn in a clumsy manner and a roomy blue blazer with big front pockets topping it. A real embodiment of modern chic! The next look is also composed of navy blue being put as stylish culottes worn with a denim blue shirt and finished off with a pair of heeled sandals and an attention-grabbing metallic bag.
The deeper we dig into the J.Crew spring/summer 2015 collection, the more stunning trends, colors and prints we discover. Thus, next we see a range of vertically striped pieces combining the burgundy shade with blue, lots of knee-length wide-legged tailored shorts quite often featuring strings, oversized shirts and tunics, sequined golden tops and skirts with fringe particles, some simple striped tops and chic blazers topping the looks. Femininity is expressed in the collection through a range of knee-length loose skirts, straight dresses and pencil skirts.
Still, the masculine influence is the protagonist in the J.Crew spring/summer 2015 collection, as we discover so many cool looks composed of tailored pants and shirts topped with blazers and jackets. On the other hand, the strappy heeled sandals come to break the strict androgynous looks, adding sophistication and a modern allure to the combos.
The finale of the show was marked with the abundance of versatile creamy and beige shades, still we can see lots of blues, khakis and bottle greens too. While the majority of looks were kept simple and monochrome, there are also lots of stripes and geometric prints used.
In terms of accessories, the J.Crew spring/summer 2015 collection has some uber-cool sunnies to offer you, as well as peep-toe heeled shoes, strappy metallic sandals, metallic bags and a couple of hats. The models’ hair was pulled up into loose buns with flyaways, while the makeup was simple with the focus placed on the bright lips.
The J.Crew spring/summer 2015 collection can certainly appeal to modern fashionisers, who love the effortlessly chic style and creative clothing combinations. After all, this is what defines a perfect street style look!
