Club Monaco Launches at Shopbop Now
Here’s a capsule collection that wins my approval!
If you want effortless chic at an affordable price, you’ll love this curated collaboration…
In all honesty, the whole collaboration idea is getting over-saturated and over-rated. Who cares if a high-end handbag designer slaps their name on a plastique bag and sends it out to the masses? It’s still an extension of a marketing scheme and something that you wouldn’t/shouldn’t be caught dead wearing with or without the "designer" name?
But every so often there is a colloboration that makes style sense. Club Monaco at Shopbop is one.
Club Monaco has been a fashion insider’s not-so-secret spot for picking up fashionable pieces without an eyeball bursting price tag. Shopbop has some of the best on-trend fashion online. Curate some of the best looks that represent the two brands by ShopBop’s fashion director, Kate Ciepluch and you’ve got a winner!
I particularly love the timeless, off-handed chic of the outfit pictured above. The silk Club Monaco Iman shirt has the right amount of safari-esque influence to be modern but not trendy. The Club Monaco Kaylyn Pleated Plaid Pants have enough of man-tailored feel to be comfy without being shapeless…. I’d roll the ankle to wear with flats or sneaks for a more casual weekend vibe. Here are a few more of my favorite pieces…
The Max Blazer has just the right amount of lightly padded shoulders to be modern without the highly-structured linebacker feel. Wear to the office, weekends, and over a simple sequin dress for a dressed down evening out… camel is THE color of the season!
The Brie Hat adds dash to any outfit… an instant wardrobe updater!
