JCA "Help Style Me!" Weekly Post

This is the weekly "Help Style Me!" post, where we can share items we are having trouble putting outfits together with. Elaine (in this post) says it best, "You know, that thing you bought because you love it and you keep pulling it out and then putting it away without wearing it?"

Please share your J.Crew item (either that you own or are thinking about getting) that you would love help creating an outfit with.

Also, please help out by offering your styling advice. Feel free to include links to your blog (where you incorporated that piece) or to Polyvore (where you showcased an outfit with that piece). Thanks in advance! :)

  3. I love the loose-ish silk color block pants (black w/beige stripe), but have no idea what top to wear w/them. I tried a thousand the other night and had to bail on wearing them b/c nothing looked good. Contemplating returning them..... Thoughts?

  5. Jruby18- go to the Net-a Porter website. Last week there was a whole article about how they are the hottest craze and in the shopping section attached to the article they had some great ideas. You need to wear heels and something closer to the body on top to balance the fullness of the pants. I am a personal stylist and I wore them to work w/ the Lillian suede sandal ( heels kill my feet all day) with a black silk tank ( few years ago), untucked and the tortoise shell flower necklace and the white linen blazer w/ black tipping. I got lots of compliments. Also a jean jacket would look good too.

    1. Excellent suggestions! Thx so much!! I have black Valentina pumps. I had beige leather wedge sandals on and that looked good when I was working on outfits. Just couldn't get the top right. I love the jean jacket idea! Now gotta get a black silk tank....

  6. Sorry- I just remembered that I started the day with the leopard ( last year) Valentina pumps. The pointed toe looks good with this. Changed into the Lillians after a few hours!
