Jenna Lyons’s top three fashion tips

Top three fashion tips?

“First of all, people make mistakes by not playing up their body traits. If you’re tall, wear skinny cropped pants and high heels. If you’re curvy, wear siren dresses; if you’re really little or short, wear short skirts. Don’t worry about what the trend is. For instance, high-waisted really long pants are back in, but I’m sorry, if you’re five foot two, they’re just not for you. Don’t get caught up in that — play to your strengths. I’m relatively tall [six foot] so I always wear heels and I have awful legs but no one would ever know because I never show them. Work with what you’ve got. Also try to create something that is signature, that’s a little bit yours: That could be a locket you always wear, or something from your grandmother, or you could always have hot-pink nail polish. Let your personal style come through.”


Here on this pic I hade my mix it up”Jenna Lyon’s steal her look” day – wearing printed pants combined with stripes and heels but without her signature glasses.

“Fashion is Fashion” said Anna Wintour but working into fashion is another matter. Interesting on what Jenna pays attention for an job interview:

When you’re interviewing job candidates, what do you look for?
“Every time I interview someone I ask them, “Who is your favourite painter? Who is your favourite architect?” and if I see their eyes glaze over I’m like, “Uh-oh.” It’s not just about loving fashion, it’s about loving design—furniture, textiles, colour, architecture—and understanding the history of art. If someone’s not interested in the visual world, it’s not a good sign to me.”



I’m wearing: flower printed pants by ZARA, raspberry, striped summer cashmere sweater, red sunglasses, black heels by TK Maxx
