    All my fav things right now…. fur, neon and boyfriend jeans…

      If the jeans were not so absurdly low rise, i might like them. As it is, this is just awful. The super uncomfortable looking shoes, so high arc he’d she looks about to tip over, the clunky jeans that look like they are about a one icy rise struggling to stay up on her hips, the one mile torso look made worse by the coat…isn’t her mid section cold? Its a completely impractical looking outfit.

    Ah I see the jeans shape you were referring to a couple of days ago! Interesting. Her bag is amazing, will look into injecting lime into my wardrobe.

    Jenna looks great. Only way to improve this is to wear a pair of tights. That way your feet are warm and tights would draw even more interest to those cuuuuute shoes and you’d get a peek of color thru the hole at the knee.

    I like the way she’s doing neon too, it’s just enough.

    Love this! Great lines—perfect proportionality—and the shoes are wonderful!

    I really like how “baggy” jeans are coming back. They look fantastic with fancy heels.

    I love when you add personal comments. This outfit doesn’t fit to my eye. I like the jeans on her but not with the heels. I definitely like this style of spacious jeans more than the Mom jeans you highlighted the other day.

    Love the neon satchel… a nod to the trend rather than dressed head to toe in one is very chic…

    Her coat, her neon purse, her height…wow!

    So nonchalant! Love the cut of the jacket, the neon hue and those fabulous heels!

    She looks absolutely fantastic and completely comfortable.

    I love her coat! Is that the famous Burberry coat? Looks like it. I also like the neon purse. Such a standout piece. Great photo!

    I really liked this outfit. It’s great to see it again. Great way to dress up a pair of super casual jeans.

    Ten to one those are vintage jeans, I love me a pair of great broken in jeans. I inherited (stole from dad when they did not fit him anymore) 5 or so pairs of jeans, he was tall and very thin when he was younger- aka instant 1960′s worn boy jeans! I wore them in high school, college and even have two pair left- my best friend to this day is like is that another pair I hate you, those are perfect.

    • Maria

      December 28, 2015 at 9:37 pm

      They did not wear super low rise jean in the 1960′s. Those are modern, obviously.

  20. ADJ

    March 13, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    Wow, that coat is amazing. She is so stunning. I really respect the work that she has done with J.Crew.


  21. Kelly Waddell

    March 13, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    I totally agree that that is the shape you were just talking about the other day. Honestly, I wasn’t a big fan of the outfits the french girls were wearing that you posted. Jenna is my all time fav girl crush though–I love seeing how she interprets this surely up & coming trend. Great photo, Scott!

    March 13, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    To me it’s bait random for randomness sake. Not necessarily any sort of rhyme or rhythm in all the clutter. The neon reminds of 2005

    i love the neon purse, so unexpected :)


  26. Celia

    March 13, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    I’m so taken aback at seeing her without her signature glasses. And yes to princessglee above, I’d do this look in a heartbeat with tights.

    That poncho/cape/coat is amazing – Love it!

    March 13, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    I love what Jenna is wearing on top, and the neon bag is fantastic. However I wish she was wearing a slimmer pair of jeans to counterbalance the looseness of the top half of the outfit.

    The way she mixes pieces and the nonchalance of it all is just…. amazing and inspiring and thrilling.

    I LOVE JENNA !!!!

    Neon!! Love it.. She looks fantastic and makes neon look like an essential wardrobe item. Beautiful.

    Dear Jenna: you are the reason I wore JCrew with Armani today, but this isn’t working for me. Any one of these pieces are fantastic, not so much together. That being said, you are amazing.

    happy to see the real deal after spotting her lookalike in the latest madewell catalogue! i thoroughly enjoyed reading the nymag article about her a few months ago.

    March 14, 2012 at 2:10 am

    for me, there is nothing like a glamorous heel with an otherwise casual outfit. believe it or not, i feel like Katie Holmes was a big part of introducing that aesthetic.

    just love this. so modern!

    Wow! I love everything about this look! The jeans are just the right length and width, the shoes are to die for, the jacket is gorgeous with that fur collar (or scarf?) and the pop of neon just adds a touch of Spring. 10/10 as far as I am concerned!

  55. La_sartasantina

    March 14, 2012 at 4:36 am

    I appreciate how the cut of those jeans are more practical than they are aesthetically pleasing. They are relaxed, lived in and normal-they do they job, and frankly, I find that refreshing, more relatable. Paired with a killer fur coat, purse, and shoes, Jenna makes this cut her own. I hope this cut stays in style for awhile! p,s. I love the sophisticated touch of the whit cuffs folded neatly outside of the jacket.

  56. Another Kate

    March 14, 2012 at 4:48 am

    Erm, call me a Luddite, but I think this “new” cut of jeans is really unflattering, makes the lower half of her body look lumpy and frumpy. Everything else rocks.

    March 14, 2012 at 5:04 am

    that is such a lovely bag and the color is awesome. totally want it now :)

    I didn’t see the shoes coming! This is a mismatch to my taste but the rest of the outfit is amazing. I would propose wedges, flats or trainers.

    The wrapping of the straps on these ‘exaggerated Mary Jane’s’ works so well with the wrap she has on. Such cool, relaxed style.

    I would have never thought to put those things together, but Jenna makes magic! She is the master of putting contrasting pieces together to make a cohesive look. I love copying her!

  109. Slastena

    March 14, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    I am in a clear minority, but this look is not eclectic, it’s poorly matched . Being a beautiful tall woman , Jenna can wear a sack and that’s exactly what she is doing. I don’t understand all the adulation that’s pouring over this misfit ensemble. Common, folks, be reasonable.

    What the woman in this picture tells me:

    “I buy anything that is in fashion and put it on, before you do”.

    Can wearing anything off a fashion magazine be a ‘personal style’?

    If yes, then she does it well… But I hardly think so.

    This does not look good to me. Can’t reconcile the boyf jeans and heels, and don’t get me started on the neon.. (She is a beautiful woman though, so she can pretty much wear anything).

  116. Camille

    March 15, 2012 at 7:18 am

    Love the shoes, love the coat, love the bag… love the entire outfit. She makes it work perfectly.

    I’ll ask the same question as many others here: Who are these shoes from?

    And the coat?

    In answer to certain “misfit” comments though: this look wouldn’t work on just anyone, that is for sure. Jenna pulls it off nicely, but unfortunately, it wouldn’t be the case for just anyone.

    I love the look. Her outfit is made up of basic pieces that all have a little somethin’ special to make them less boring. Jeans, heels, white shirt, fabulous jacket/scarf. All neutral with a pop of neon from the bag. Seriously, what’s not to like?

    Here is my challenge to the Fashionistas: do not wear jeans for a year.
    Do not wear ripped jeans, wide jeans, cropped jeans, skinny jeans, jeggings, McQueen slouch jeans, designer jeans, supermarket jeans or any other jeans in any way shape or form.

  128. LIZPR

    This is an AWESOME way to wear the jeans you were mentioning before …. with a narrow silhouette on top. This is perfectly done.

    She is inspirational. She also looks 7′ in the picture.

    Reminds me of an old New Yorker cartoon: “It’s a look , alright, I just hope it isn’t The Look!”

    Love the heels. I wouldn’t pair them with jeans, but rather a sexy dress.

    A little late on my end…but that jacket could be made with some scrumptious cashmere, then bound with a faux leather topped off with a fur collar probably for a lot less than this jacket actually cost.

      But faux leather looks really, really cheap, no matter how hard people try to sell it.

    I love the jacket but for some reason the jeans just aren’t working for me with those amazing shoes. I think some black leather leggings would be amazing with the rest of this outfit.
