    There was once a time — before Jenna Lyons took the helm — when a J.Crew catalogue was notably free of the frills and frippery we love today. No striped leopard-print blazers with Lulu Frost jewelry, toothpick boyfriend-slouch skinny jeans, tortoiseshell hair clips, and Edie bags.

Take note and study up with our favorite picks from this truly unbeatable photo shoot — then click on through to Buzzfeed for the rest. (Buzzfeed)
