J.Crew Fall 2012 Look Book

Alert: J.Crew published its Fall 2012 Look Book. As a committed consumer of the brand, I couldn’t resist diving into the collection – just a few weeks before the leaves begin to turn.

This stunning emerald ensemble is look No. 1 in the book and quite possibly ranks the same on my list.

Let’s dissect. Turtlenecks have never gone out of style in my mind, but they’re certainly establishing a widely-endorsed resurgence this year [for women AND men]. Here, a jewel-tone shade and cozy-chic Fair Isle weave pump up the classic & conservative silhouette of the sweater. Pairing with a coordinating [but not exactly matching] spearmint hue creates a full-bodied color blast that is sharply on-trend, and the sleek fit of this pencil skirt provides essential balance to the chunky knit top.  

With such a bold and bright visual exclamation on figure, the solid [yet subtly textured] black satchel grounds the look. A fuchsia lip or pop-color stud earrings add dimension to the otherwise-monochrome sartorial statement. Finish with footwear in a soft pink pump to complement the rosiness around the face and ensure you stay within a tried-and-true three-color palette mix.
