{Fashion Friday}

So, I’m just going to come out and say it…I *LOVE* JCREW.  I just can’t say enough good stuff about their clothing.  It’s all so hip, yet so classic at the same time.  The outfits look so current, yet also timeless–it’s the perfect combination.  I refer a ton of my clients to JCrew, not only for themselves, but for their children.  Their Crewcuts line for children is to.die.for.

So for this edition of Fashion Friday, I found an outfit from JCrew’s site that will teach us a lot about texture.

Texture always makes an outfit look more intriguing to the eye.  And they did a fabulous job piecing this outfit together.  Check out the fabulous tweed skirt, chunky cardigan, and the lace tights–all different textures added together, yet it looks FABULOUS.  And then adding accessories brings another type of texture to the outfit.  They also did a fabulous job layering the outfit…which you will find throughout their site.  But layering is a whole other blog post for a whole other day!

So when piecing that outfit together for your next session, don’t let texture scare you.  It was pulled off perfectly above.  And if you are saying, “yeah, but I don’t think I would be that great piecing an outfit together.”  No no no!  Because I am more than willing to help you out in your styling dilemmas, and JCrew offers a COMPLIMENTARY personal shopper program!  Check it out!
