Watch J.Crew’s Tom Mora Explain Sequins and Baggy Shorts


At any given time of year, you’ll see something with a sequin on it at J.Crew. Fans of the brand love adding sparkle to their outfits, but how do you keep it current? The Cut caught up with Tom Mora, vice president of women’s design, at today’s spring presentation to talk about signature embellishment and how to reinvent them again for next spring. This time around, it’s about using the colors of the aurora borealis, with all of its yellow tones as a starting point. See how inspiration turns to reality in the form of slouchy dresses, surf shorts, and more. Plus check Sophia Webster’s next collaboration with the brand and hear Mora explain just exactly how to wear those Bermuda shorts at the office. Hint: It involves tailoring. Click above to watch.
