Dress to impress, all while basking in the silken goodness of blouse label Cooper & Ella. Designer Kara Mendelsohn’s quest to create the perfect shirt comes courtesy of merchandising stints with Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and Thakoon. Her bold prints and cuts - think double collared painterly and bird-print tops, tailored blouses with demure polka dots, and bold floral dress shirts– are as easy to wear as they are easy on your wallet. Cooper & Ella (named after Mendelsohn’s children) includes a diverse formal collection with pieces guaranteed to add a little romance to any date night, including sexy lace shoulder blouses, southern belle flutter tops, and bare shoulder naughty shirts with curved laced panels and picot stitching. Cooper & Ella’s sexy and feminine designs make the simplest of crew necks look like walking works of art.
No matter the occasion, the key to looking fabulous is choosing pieces that accentuate your best assets and hide your less-than-favorite features. Have a little middle? Shop the waist-cinching sheaths and wrap dresses. Craving an instant hourglass? Try a peplum-trimmed blouse or bustier mini. You’ll also find streamlined maxi skirts, leg-lengthening trousers (with slick tuxedo stripes), and more chic styles designed to flatter.
Silk shirtdresses, maxi skirts, and more casual-chic styles you'll wear everywhere this season.
Go for serious color in spring's new LBDs.
Ditch the basics this season for something with an element of fun. Casual-chic silhouettes — from flirty shift dresses, mini skirts, skinny jeans, and comfy knits — get a much-needed update with playful details like beading, peplum ruffles, and fringe trim. And there are plenty of prints on hand too: Think graphic florals, earthy tie-dye, and colorblocked brocade motifs.
