October’s must-have capsule collection
Sometimes getting dressed feels like a sartorial riddle. You want to be on trend, but not too trendy. Look sophisticated, yet have a bit of an edge. Oh, and you don?t want to spend a small fortune on every new item you buy.
Shopping through Modern Citizen just might be the solution.
Launched earlier this year by local Jessica Lee, the site releases a new fashion capsule each month, featuring a limited selection of clothing and accessories that meet the above criteria. Lee designs the majority of the pieces herself, reflecting modern silhouettes that are shape-conscious but never clingy.
We?re coveting most everything in the military-inspired October collection, particularly the olive asymmetric jersey dress ($50)--perfect for fall tastings in wine country--and the classic moto jacket ($449) for the inevitable chilly nights. Accessorize below the ankle with the Simone studded strap heels ($129) or deck above your neck with these dramatic drop earrings ($24).
The best part? Almost everything is under $100.
