In the past few years, J.Crew has emerged from the pack of mass market retailers as a brand with serious trend-setting potential -- seeing the value of heritage brands like Barbour and Alden, and even collaborating with the latest roster of CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund nominees on a series of capsule collections (kicking off with Billy Reid).
What you might not know, however, is that the designers behind that kind of trend forecasting have their own looks to match: Here, we caught up with J.Crew Womenswear Designer Marissa Webb at the brand's Fall 2011 preview, where she outlined her favorite look for spring, brightly colored bottoms -- a look that happened to mirror what she was wearing.

Want to get her look? Marissa is wearing J.Crew's higher-waist Linen Maddie pant in "gauguin orange," available at J.Crew for $168.
