Catherine Malandrino for DesigNation, available at Kohl’s, launched today! You can shop the collection online, or in-stores, with plenty of pieces and size ranges still available. Catherine Malandrino, known for modern, New York meets Paris-inspired designs complete with form fitting shapes, intricate knits, flounce hems, and sleek silhouettes has lent her signature style to Kohl’s for a limited time. I have never received as many compliments as when I wear my Catherine Malandrino dresses, so you better believe I planned to try a few of the styles out!
Courtesy of the brand, I had a blast in the Catherine Malandrino for DesigNation oversized striped cardigan $88, which is totally on-trend for fall/winter 2013, AND spring/summer 2014, with its bold mixing of black and white. My rule of thumb with pairing stripes, polka dots, or any busy pattern is to try to limit the colors in your look to three, max four, for a balanced aesthetic. I paired the stripes with a bit of plaid, and red jeans as the color pop option; I’ve always felt strongly that black, white, and red are shades that always look amazing together.
