I have always been a sucker for work wear. I’ve long obsessed over the wardrobes of powerful ladies in the movies. Some of my favorites include Sandra Bullock in The Proposal, Rena Russo in Thomas Crowne Affair and Helen Hunt in What Women Want (throwback I know, but rent it, I promise you’ll want every look). In each one of these cases, the clothes definitely made the woman. So when I recently discovered Modern Citizen I stopped dead in my fashion-deprived tracks. I trust you’ll do the same.
This collection is the perfect amalgamation of my favorite muses. Crisp, clean, and built on the foundation of luscious neutral tones and beautiful cuts. Chic is probably the most overused adjective in blog land these days, but it really is the only way to describe these looks. They’re proof positive that the basics do not have to boring. If you pick the right silhouettes, the perfect crop or the ideal chunky knit you’re guaranteed to look pulled together (no matter what kind of turmoil is happening on the inside – read this if you don’t know what I’m talking about). This is the type of power dressing I’ve missed since going “mama.” And I think it’s time I get back in the sartorial game. There’s just something so empowering about wearing clothes that make you feel like the best version of yourself. I strongly suspect you’ll be feeling very Olivia Pope in any one of Modern Citizen’s looks and that would definitely be my best self!
For all my Bay Area babes, I have a very special treat to share with you. Modern Citizen will open its doors to the general public for its Biannual Showroom Sale this Saturday, January 23rd – a day before the sale goes online.
You’ll be able to save up to 50% off bestsellers & editor favorites along with jewelry, scarves and accessories. I think I might try to line up early for this one.
