Here’s what we know for sure about Jones: our Styled By subject has an unparalleled wit, she co-wrote and starred in romantic comedy Celeste and Jesse Forever, loves Thanksgiving stuffing, and designed a fine jewellery collection with sister design duo Dannijo, Fine by Dannijones, that is utterly sweet and chic. Oh, and she’s a true style star. To prove it, Jones stopped by our L.A. offices and put together three outfits that that speak to her tomboy sensibilities.

“If you can wear menswear and make it look sexy, I guess that’s the sexiest thing you can do. There is something about how covered up and tailored it is, that is really alluring, sexy, and sophisticated.”

"I grew up wearing a uniform for 13 years, so I love tuxedos. I actually bought this jacket because the fit was so beautiful. If it fits well, it looks so polished. It’s so easy, and you really haven’t done anything but put on a suit, which I love."

“This look reminds me a lot of my childhood. I love houndstooth and have since I was a little girl. My sister tried to make me wear some of those ‘80s fashion trends like bubble skirts, thigh-high tights, and off-the-shoulder dresses, but I just wanted to wear houndstooth trousers.”
On Jones: Marc by Marc Jacobs Terence Jacquard Jacket ($478); Adam Lippes T-Shirt ($95); Rochas Armure Cropped Pants ($1050); Fine by Dannijones Terhagen 3 Necklace ($598) and Coco Anklet ($368); Christian Louboutin Latcho Mixed-Media Oxfords ($1375).
“There is something so inherently effortless about somebody who can rock a tuxedo, especially wearing little oxford loafers.”
On Jones: Christian Louboutin Latcho Mixed-Media Oxfords ($1375).
“I love a white collar on anything, and there is something so girly about an embellished collar. It’s a serious look, but the embellishment makes you feel like a princess.”
On Jones: Miu Miu Crepe Cropped Jacket ($2205); A.L.C. Sandro Top in Cotton & Novelty Combo ($225); Rag & Bone Easier Pants ($195); Fine by Dannijones Coco 3 Necklace ($598), Merve 3 Necklace ($598), and Elf Midi Ring ($198).
Merv Anklet ($368)
“I think our contribution is to try and get anklets going. I remember it making me feel very feminine wearing an anklet. The unicorn is the quintessential symbol of whimsy and is also a reminder to not take things too serious and to stay creative and imaginative in your daily life.”
Angelina Tuxedo Jacket ($500)
Coco 2 Necklace ($598)
“I think that Danielle and Jodi and have a good sense of humour in their jewellery: it’s never too serious. It’s fun and sometimes outrageous, so when we talked about doing a fine jewellery line we wanted to have inspiration that felt whimsical.”
Satin High Waist Trousers ($350)
Kenya Ear Cuff ($268)
“In the past year, where people wear their jewellery has opened so much. I love knuckle rings, and ear cuffs are great.”
Cotton-Poplin Tuxedo Shirt ($385)
Hermana Hand Piece ($498)
“I lose my jewellery a lot, so there is a lot of turnover for me, which is not great for my budget, but it means that I get to try a bunch of different things.”
Cuddle Oxfords ($89)
Kidada Ring ($298)
“I have been a fan of Dannijo for a while. I told them if they ever wanted to do a collaboration with a complete beginner that knows nothing about jewellery, I would be their girl.”
Peanut 3 Earring ($138)
“I like the idea of jewellery being a part of who you are in a way that clothes can’t necessarily be. You can wear jewellery every day and sleep in it and becomes part of your person.”
