Isabel Lu designer Sophia Kim believes that style should be effortless. To that end, the Los Angeles-based talent creates luxurious yet versatile clothing defined by clean lines, restrained color palettes, a smattering of ruffles, and an occasional smocked shoulder. Upgrade your wardrobe with Isabel Lu’s seafoam green dresses and tiered blouses, asymmetrical skirts, daring sweaters, embroidered maxi dresses, or kimono tops. Restraint is the key to these fuss-free separates, which Kim describes as “transcontinental” and romantic. Since Isabel Lu’s debut in 2009, the brand has gained a following among Hollywood trendsetters such as Kim Kardashian and Minka Kelly.
