Tall women … if you haven’t already met, I am honored to introduce you to MARGE. This exquisite womenswear brand has been dressing tall, sophisticated, modern women since July 2015 with upscale statement pieces, timeless staple pieces, and luxurious collections designed to upgrade your wardrobe and bring luxury to everyday life.
Throughout this two-part blog post, I am delighted to showcase two looks from this elegant brand that are work-appropriate, flattering for taller frames, and pieces that feel so luxurious and special.
First up, the statement piece …
This outfit is an incredibly versatile and beautiful look for work, a busy social life, family life, and beyond. As women, we balance our complex schedules with such poise and grace, and the Hanna Pant + Anni Dress Shirt + Helene Jacket are perfect options for a plethora of occasions and events. As soon as I put this outfit on, I felt instantly elevated, feminine, unique and special. Each piece felt like it was made just for my taller frame.
And it was ... MARGE has taken a unique approach to re-engineer the way their garments fit, by including over 50 different measurements in their design process. As a result, each piece complements the unique stature of taller women and feels like it’s one-of-a-kind.
I recently asked MARGE founder and designer, Kaersten Cooper how the brand finds influences that play into the latest collection and she cited, “For Summer/Resort 2016, we wanted to create silhouettes that would embody the optimism - the enthusiasm for brighter, lighter, warmer days to come. Since Summer is a time of travel, discovery, freedom from the frantic pace of life, we designed a versatile range of styles that would invite our clients to relax into the comfort of their best selves.”
The Hanna Pleated Pant is the perfect summer pant for work. The silk charmeuse lining feels incredibly soft + luxurious, and the modified wide-leg look is both easy-going and beautiful with subtle pleat detailing.
I paired the Hanna Pant with MARGE’S Anni Silk Dress Shirt … another versatile option for those hot summer days at the office. This shirt has a playful + youthful energy, gorgeous embroidery, and pops of silk throughout. With sheer sleeves, it’s a cool (both literally and figuratively) piece for summer that maintains a professional + polished office look.
To add another layer of sophistication, I completed the outfit with the Helene Crepe Draped Jacket. As soon as I put put this jacket on, I immediately fell in love with the lightweight crepe material, the polished + clean look, the high-low hemline and the updated look of the lapel! This jacket is a fantastic alternative to the traditional two-button blazer, and a piece that can be worn in any season.
What do you think? And please check back next week for Part II, the staple piece (and my two personal favorite items from MARGE’s entire collection)!
