J. Crew’s colorful mashup of color and texture is going to make you excited to shop for fall 2012—which is exactly the company’s goal. “We’re successful when 16-year-old girls are wearing it and when I’m wearing it and when my mom wears it,” executive creative director Jenna Lyons told InStyle.com. “This collection is for hopefully someone who is a little more adventurous in the way she puts things together.” With this in mind, Lyons designed separates for women of every age and every occasion, from weekend shirtdresses and chunky Fair Isle sweaters to party-ready bright sequined cocktail dresses. Fur-covered bags, cat-eye sunglasses, and metallic pumps fleshed out the accessories assortment. See our favorite looks in the gallery now!
