Chelsea Mak Garden Skirt, Brown/Black Gingham

Chelsea Mak

Chelsea Mak Garden Skirt, Brown/Black Gingham

Price: $315

This skirt is roughly mid-calf, with both a drawstring at the waist and zipper closure. It's a lovely, modern take on taffeta, which can feel too formal for everyday. Chelsea Mak has given this piece some fun, with a full circle skirt, still ultra-light in feel, and perfect with a hoodie or crewneck sweater and sneakers.

Chelsea Mak Vienna Blouse, Brown/Black Gingham

Chelsea Mak

Chelsea Mak Vienna Blouse, Brown/Black Gingham

Price: $352

With this slightly boxy shape, a deceptively simple fit. Easy overhead, deep V front, alone or layered.

NB: This type of organic silk has its share of normal anomalies, including miniscule nubs, threading, and color variation. It's naturally occurring, and shouldn't be taken as errors, but as character.

Chelsea Mak Gramercy Dress, Black

Chelsea Mak

Chelsea Mak Gramercy Dress, Black

Price: $378

Minimal doesn't mean simple, doesn't mean plain. It means restrained, geometric, classic, suited for nearly everyone. The Gramercy dress has been a staple from Chelsea's first collection, because it's just such a surprise every time it's on a new body. May be worn forward or backward, right for any occasion. With side pockets and easily washed.

Chelsea Mak Brea Dress, Brick

Chelsea Mak

Chelsea Mak Brea Dress, Brick

Price: $468

This summery dress fools you into thinking it's fancy, or that it takes work to wear it, when really, it's the exact opposite. Chelsea Mak continues to play with the girly signifiers, adding ribbons to keep everything in their place. The fabric is lustrous and soft, but the dress is pretty practical, with side pockets and easily washed. Full skirt, A-line shape.

Chelsea Mak Annie Top, Gold

Chelsea Mak Annie Top, Gold

Price: $250

Chelsea Mak continues to play with the tropes of traditional femininity, in this case that bugaboo, the bustier. This shell top references that garment, but it's reinterpreted as a loose, boxy blouse. It's a great way to upend a formal feeling fabric like taffeta, with a more contemporary, sporting approach. We enjoy it layered over a turtleneck or something of that nature, keep it unexpected, always comfortable.

Chelsea Mak Anita Blazer

Chelsea Mak

Chelsea Mak Anita Blazer

Price: $525

This open, oversized blazer is made from a soft wool suiting/poly blend. Elegant shawl collar, seam front pockets, partially lined. A classic wardrobe staple. 

This Los Angeles-based designer specializes in vintage-inspired silhouettes, with a contemporary approach to material. Thai silks, gabardines, shantung, faille, all pieces to a feminine puzzle. You may find it odd, this enthusiasm for a collection that differs from Stand Up Comedy's usual directions, but it's how these pieces can be incorporated into the everyday wardrobe that's intriguing. Each piece potentially provides big impact with minimal effort, and that's what makes a ton of sense for a person's wardrobe, now.
