It’s always about this time in the cold-weather season that we start daydreaming about its complete opposite: visions of hot beach vacations, the sun shining on our skin, the sand on our feet (can’t you just feel it?). All we can think about is travelling, not to mention the clothes we’d wear while doing so. They just feel so good. Their bright colours, breathable fabrics and fun details just scream “Summer!” and in these chilly grey days, that’s exactly what we need. Naturally we designed our resort collection with vacationing in mind, but the pieces work well even if you’re staying put.
Comfort is still king and that’s unlikely to change for awhile. Now we’re just seeing it in an elevated form. Bright colours, contemporary cuts and interesting silhouettes take this trend from slouchy to perfectly put-together, and they make for a practical way to get your next-season fix now. These are great buys that will last a long time and inject some much-needed energy into your closet (which, right now, is more than likely full of dark, heavy sweaters).
Light, bright colours
We’ve added some eye-popping colour to our roster of Sympli staples, and thrown in a few new pieces to the collection. You’ll find classic items like our Narrow Midi Pant, Go-To Classic T-shirt and Trapeze Short Dress in hues like bright blue, ocean, white and navy. Also in those colours, you’ll find our new Deep V T-shirt, which features side slits and a dropped shoulder for a flattering fit; our new Pleat Back Smock Top, a drape-y tank top that makes for a fun layering piece; and our new Belted Capri Pant
in stretchy jersey, which features inseam pockets, a comfortable yoke waistband and removable belt for style and versatility.
Fresh, eye-catching detail
Sometimes all you need to level up your look is to put a fresh twist on an old staple. We’ve added a few items to our collection that feature unexpected details while still feeling timeless enough to become a classic in your closet. Our Twist Legging is our classic ankle-length yoke legging that boasts romantic twist detailing at the hem––wear them when you want to be comfortable and cute. There’s also our Slant Keyhole Neck Top and Slant Keyhole Tunic, both of which strike the perfect blend of elegance and edge with their unique angled cutout detail at the neck (very chic). And finally, there’s our Wide Sleeve Twist Top with cutout twist detailing at the wide, 3/4-length sleeves––with its stretch fabric and A-line fit, it’s a standby piece that makes a statement.
Everyday Women’s Clothing Essentials
In the market for casual yet cool staples you’ll reach for again and again and again (and again)? No closet is complete without these essentials: our new Sleeveless Diva Henley, with round hem, front button detail, and pleating at the waist; our Everyday Cardigan, now in a fresh white, which features raglan sleeves, long cuffs and hidden pockets for ultimate comfort; our classic dolman-sleeve Nu Cinch Top, now in bright blue, navy and ocean; and our Narrow Lantern Pant, a wide, ankle-length pant that adds that extra bit of edge to your everyday, and––with its elegant, leg-lengthening silhouette––instantly elevate your look, no matter where you’re headed.
