Hi Wildflower NYFW Picks: J. Crew Keeps it Flowery, Glittery and Fly

J. Crew was usually the place I hit up when I needed preppy job interview clothes, but in the last five years, Creative Director Jenna Lyons has turned the brand into a beloved high-low fashion force to be reckoned with. Retaining wisps of its prep roots, I'm loving this palette of striking floral patterns, classic tailored windbreakers and shearling jackets, plus a floral shift dress I'm buying as soon as it's out! Even the cropped wide-legged pants, the sort of geeky-chic look that embodies Ms. Lyons, would work really well with heels or boots, and it's a nice shift in silhouette from all things skinny jeans. Androgyny is a buzz word, for sure, but here at Hi Wildflower, we want all things to have a certain fluidity--whether it be clothes, aesthetics, politics, cultural mores and musical tastes. When I see this collection from J. Crew--it embodies that sort of fluidity. Each piece reminds me of how it's fun to mix and match prints, solids, leather, cotton, wools and silks to create a look where you can't look away! Gone are those stuffy days of yore for J. Crew. These last several seasons are proof that they've finally gotten their heads outta the clouds and come downtown. Or to Brooklyn.

They've got a sweet tumblr, too. Here's a post about styling this season's show.
