Trend Watch: Sophia Webster for J.Crew
Jenna Lyons, creative director of J. Crew, is the ultimate cool kid on the block. As the force behind one of America’s most influential brands, she knows her trends. We often find ourselves gazing at the effortlessly chic looks styled in their catalogs and can’t help but adore how perfect the footwear looks. You might wonder, ‘can I really pull off heels with nautical shorts?’ It’s definitely something we ponder whenever we see one of their flawlessly put-together models, though we rarely ever try it out for ourselves. This may change, however, with J. Crew’s collaboration with Sophia Webster.
Webster, a protégée of London footwear genius, Nicholas Kirkwood, knows a thing or two about cheer! This lovely Brit is known for her playful patterns, including stripes, polka dots, and vibrant colors. Her designs prove personality can be fully expressed through a statement shoe complementing a simple, low-key ensemble. Webster’s collaboration with J. Crew is in no short supply of spunk and style! The collection, due out in April, features styles with hearts, florals, rainbow plaid, stripes, polka dots, tassels, and much more! We can’t wait for this whimsical collection to debut. A pair of Webster’s darling shoes is sure to add a spring to our step for the coming season!
