the J.Crew Fall RTW Collection for 2016 is pretty great -- classic menswear-inspired pieces, perfectly causal shapes, and really fun styling. the collection comes in a weirdly sophisticated mixture of bright magenta, oxblood, blush, bubble gum pink, pastel blue, cool grays, caramel, navy, taxi cab yellow, and green. did i miss any?
there also is a parka with a pink fur trimmed parka.
the shooooes make me happy: loafers, lace-up flats, and a pointy toe snakeskin pair (see below) that i'm practically in love with.
the patterns and pattern mixing though....(!).
snakeskin, argyle, leopard, geometric lines, stripes, houndstooth, and a bunch of different florals.
an abstract floral print on a black background: you really can wear florals in fall and winter.
then, pair it with stripes.
i think this is such a fun look: a scarf, belt, FOUR different patterns and pastel pants. then throw on a bubblegum pink (and widely coveted) faux fur jacket for good measure. phew. it's so wacky it works.
a cool clash of leopard and Lilly Pulitzer-inspired florals. so into the shape of this leopard coat.
mixing print neutrals: florals, stripes and leopard (lace up flats? heels? i want/need a pair either way).
