The Best Bridesmaid Fashion Idea from J. Crew's Jenna Lyons

  |  By Nicole Keen

Last week, J. Crew opened its first-ever Canadian store at Toronto's Yorkdale Mall. In town for the grand opening party, Jenna Lyons, the company's president and executive creative director, charmed the crowds in an eye-catching green sequin pencil skirt. Indeed, Lyons and her admirable personal style has undoubtedly added to the brand's appeal in recent years---devoted legions of fans head to each month to view "Jenna's Picks"---and her unique outlook on fashion can be felt in J. Crew's wedding offerings as well. The brand's bridal lookbooks, featuring fresh-faced brides and bridesmaids in effortlessly chic ensembles, are a constant source of inspiration. Needless to say, we were eager to chat with Lyons about what constitutes modern bridesmaid style. As it turns out, for Lyons it's all about the mix. She was recently part of a bridal party in which each bridesmaid wore a simple white t-shirt and a floor-length sequin skirt. We absolutely love this idea! Separates can be just as chic as dresses for your girls, so don't be afraid to mix things up---the results will by worthy of Jenna's stamp of approval!
