Club Monaco is one of my favourite stores because the lines of their clothing are clean, and the quality is usually high. I love the way the brand interprets hot of the press trends in a simple way, and with luxurious fabrications. The clothing often runs small, especially on pants and jeans, but it’s more true to size when the styles are fluid and oversized. They focus on neutrals but occasionally add a sprinkle of colour.
- Laurine Peplum Belt: This might be the only way I’ll wear a peplum and a belt over a skirt. Keep the contrast low or high over bottoms and add interest to trousers that don’t have belt loops. Fun vibe for business casual and formal.
- Jamie Wool and Leather Coat: A semi-structured ’70s coat with magnificent leather insets.
- Samone Coat: It’s a pity that this coat is badly photographed because the cut is magnificent. The fit on the back on the bottom is sculptured and quite haute couture. If it had a collar and longer sleeves, it would be mine. It’s great for petites with shorter arms and neck. Love the unstructured structured silhouette and pretty shade of pink. Chic Deluxe.
- Brittney Wool Coat: A fably classic peacoat, yet super modern in an unusual shade of icy light blue. Warning: it’s not tailored like most peacoats. The fit is a little oversized with a dropped shoulder line for a fashion forward effect.
- Samira Plaid Wool Leather Coat: Retro, unstructured and eye-catching. You have to love plaid to wear this number. Perfect with white jeans in Fall, Winter and Spring.
- Mariah Silver Foil Sweater: High-low casual glitz. Great with faded jeans, trousers or a pencil skirt.
- Lynn Foldover Clutch: Sleek, refined and minimal.
- Julie Graphic Print Turtleneck: A digital floral pattern for Team Grey and Team Turtleneck.
It’s also nice to see Club Monaco provide V-neck pullovers because those have become a rarity. Although I don’t wear V-neck pullovers, I have clients who love the neckline. Thank goodness we have options.
