As Executive Creative Director of J.Crew, Jenna Lyons has revamped the longstanding American sportswear outpost, taking it from preppy staples to accessibly chic essentials. So it should come as no surprise that we always look to the lovely Lyons for casual, on-trend ensembles with a classic touch. The outfit she selected to wear to Billy Reid's S/S 2011 presentation at Milk Studios during New York Fashion Week offers an ideal example of her dressing sensibilities. Lyons picked a J.Crew solid lightweight shirt from their Summer 09 collection and paired it with the belted Longuette Skirt ($285) and Fur Scarf ($593), both from Dries Van Noten's F/W 10 collection. Her look not only pays serious homage to fall's call for leopard accents—love that lust-worthy scarf—but it also perfectly translates the military trend, proving that army pieces can be styled for on as well as off-duty looks.
