Season after season, Club Monaco has graced us with their flirty frocks and loose-fitting, laid-back styles. The use of neutral colors keeps the designs appealing to most, and the light silk and chiffon materials make them comfortable to wear. To no suprise, their spring/summer ‘12 collection is out and maintains the same chic style as its predecessors!
We love the easy-to-wear pieces in this collection and the day-to-night appeal. The inspiration behind the line was "road trip down California's coastline," which it brilliantly embodies. Each piece has that flowing fit that can be worn during the day with a blazer, or out at night with a leather jacket. The connection to west coast free spirit, and east coast city chic is spot on with silk, cropped pants, knee-length dresses, maxi skirts, scarves, and leather-trim totes and clutches.
If you are looking for simplistic, versatile pieces, this is one collection you should definitely check out. With the less-is-more approach, you can easily contain that minimalist and chic style. We love their Adela Pleated Skirt as it shows the classic maxi skirt with a twist through its ruffle trim, slit up the side, and pleats all around. Another fave is the Lainey Dip-Dyed Silk Dress with an ombre orange-to-white finish on a silk charmeuse pallet. And we can’t forget about the Maggie Fedora- a perfect hat to bring into the warm weather months and definitely a vacation essential!
