Is there anything more classic + chic than a monochromatic black and white outfit? If you read last week’s blog post, you saw one of MARGE clothing’s statement looks included in the Spring/Summer 2016 collection. This week, I am incredibly excited to share this polished + professional look, also from MARGE.
If you know me personally, you know two things about me:
Black and White is Best: I gravitate towards black and white clothing for work. These colors are not only my personal favorites, they are immensely versatile in a work wardrobe. Especially if you are looking to make an investment in a few workwear items, choosing black and white means that you will be able to wear each piece with other colors, during all seasons, and have the ability to incorporate elements of your personal style with a statement necklace, silk scarf, belt, etc. while maintaining a timeless and upscale look to your outfit.
So it is easy to see why I fell in love with the Naja Skirt and Nina Blouse from MARGE clothing. With their elegant styling, and luxurious feel, both of these garments are pieces I can wear again and again … plus they make for an elegant + chic transition from work to happy hour.
The Naja Skirt, with its deep pleats flows freely and hangs beautifully. The length is work-appropriate and the a-line shape is flattering for any body type. The Nina Blouse incorporates a classic + traditional long-sleeve look, with touches of elegance in a teardrop opening in the back and side-seam reveal.
Fanatically Fastidious: I am INCREDIBLY DISCERNING when it comes to clothing … and I expect a lot from my wardrobe. I treat my workwear clothing as an investment, and ultimately this leads me to be selective in material (has to last), style (seasonal or trendy items are few and far between), and often leads to discouragement in finding items that fit my list of criteria, but aren’t long enough, or built for a taller frame.
With MARGE, my expectations are met. Each piece is constructed with the highest quality, focuses on attention to design and versatility, and feels timeless + upscale + luxurious. I recently asked founder and designer Kaersten Cooper how MARGE provides tall women opportunities beyond being able to source length-appropriate styles, to which she replied, “Our mission, our purpose, has always been to celebrate height, or length as a beautifully unique and incredibly positive asset - one of many assets we as women possess! Our design process, fabric philosophy and vanguard approach to reinventing fit for tall, invites women to elevate their expectations when it comes to their shopping experience! So, whether it comes to designing custom textiles, prints or colors, we aim to bring luxury to life with an eye towards exclusive fabrics in timeless silhouettes to stand the test of time. When you wear life well, you reveal your authentic self. Confident. Strong. Transparent. Honest.”
I’ll raise my glass of prosecco to that. Cheers everyone.
