NEW YORK — Quirky prints and vivid colors were key runway trends on both sides of the Atlantic, and J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons was smart to get in on the act. The creative director is right on target with her spring collection, which is filled with flirty little numbers like this paisley-print linen frock.

According to Mickey Drexler, “Style and quality are the rules to live by every day” — not to mention trends. So for spring, J. Crew’s creative director, Jenna Lyons, zeroed in on several key runway looks, focusing on easy shift dresses in vibrant colors and lots of quirky prints, also adding a touch of shine with cropped sequined jackets. As for the expanded accessories lineup, satin two-toned sandals and beachy flats were highlights, and the colorful plastic jewelry looked fun and cheerful.
