9 Ways To Win At Summer Style

TJMxx_TheList_Landing_JoyAdaeze
Joy Adaeze can turn a sidewalk into a runway — her mind-boggling mix of prints and accessories is the stuff of street-style dreams. If you haven't spotted her in NYC, you might have seen the stylist and image consultant on NBC or Essence.com dropping her fashion know-how.
It's Adaeze's blog, Joy Loves Fashion, though, that really fuels her style power. There she offers thousands of followers a Pinterest-worthy selection of her signature blend of colors, patterns, and textures that defies the rules of fashion. We can thank Adaeze’s mom for passing it down, not to mention the vintage pieces that jump-started her wardrobe in the first place (including that trademark turban inspired by her Nigerian roots).
But, even this master mixer is all about the basics. "I always say, start with staple pieces — trends are great, but on a regular Tuesday morning, you want to feel good with no fuss.” Hey, if she has the secret for winning at weekday outfits without waking up 30 minutes early, we're all ears. That's why we tapped her to assemble nine summer ensembles with pieces from T.J.Maxx. The best part? None of the prices will make you break a sweat. Now, that's what we call fashion with benefits.
