    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 jewelry 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. Keep reading to shop her borrowed-from-the-boys looks and pieces from her jewelry line now.

    "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.”

    “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.”

    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.”

    Coco 2 Necklace ($598)

    “I think that Danielle and Jodi and have a good sense of humor in their jewelry: it’s never too serious. It’s fun and sometimes outrageous, so when we talked about doing a fine jewelry line we wanted to have inspiration that felt whimsical.”
