As Spring and Summer draw near and the heat trickles back in, it’s time to take stock of our wardrobes and make sure we have pieces that keep us cool and stylish even in triple degrees. Let’s put away our bulky outerwear and look to cotton, linen, and fluttery silhouettes for optimal Spring-Summer comfort.
The XCVI Spring 2022 collection is all about blending function and practicality with flair and
effortlessness. Pieces like the Cambria Tank and Ismay Pant show just how beautiful light, simple
materials are, especially when adorned with cotton crochet.
Both the Ismay and Cambria make their mark in both white and midnight black. A relaxed fit ensures comfort and versatility for both of these pieces. Cambria’s asymmetrical hem and Ismay’s flared leg both offer a glimpse into the bold yet flowing essence of this collection. You can always count on crochet to be handmade for that perfect bohemian look that keeps the breeze going all day long.
Similarly, the Kibo Top falls right in line with this fresh vision. With three-quarter sleeves, crochet trim, and billowy linen, Kibo serves up timeless midnight black chic without sacrificing a relaxed, cozy appearance. Meticulously-constructed, clean-lined pieces have the power to instantly elevate your look.
You’ll never go wrong with a simple silhouette or an all black outfit a la Audrey Hepburn. Warmer weather can pose a challenge though, and often calls for light, airy pieces that take a classic look to the next level.
Timelessness–and your own perspective on what makes something a classic–might just be your
wardrobe’s greatest asset as we dive into Spring. Sometimes you find something you love to wear and just stick to it–and there’s nothing wrong with that! In this case, we’re talking exaggerated cargo pockets, which we just can’t get enough of. Did you know that pockets are often made significantly smaller on women’s clothing than on men’s? We’re changing that over here with the Faulkner Wide Leg Crop pants, available in classic black with antique brass hardware and an elastic waist.
These gaucho cargos hold all your necessities and trinkets, because who really needs a purse when you have pants?
The Rishi pants offer similar storage potential in a shade of muted blue linen. Zippered cargo pockets and a culotte capri cut bridge function with leisure, making Rishi the ideal trouser for a walk on the beach or a day in the park. Ideally, all pants would feel this breezy and easy to move in, with convenient pockets and plenty of stretch throughout. XCVI’s approach to movement-friendly clothing bids goodbye to the days of constricting and starchy denim. Instead, we opt for wide waistbands in the softest of elastics and fabrics that move with you, all while ensuring sophistication with every look you put together.
The bright white Ellison Legging provides a sleek look infused with a hint of sporty. Made in a
slim fit with ruched stretch cotton and contrasting jersey panels, these tactical leggings also have side
pockets that maximize both convenience and chicness.
Pair Ellison with the Quinto Tank, a versatile, lighter-than-light blouse in a plush double gauze with a v-neck and single central pleat. Whether in a crisp bright white or pastel purple, this top is sure to claim a staple spot in your Summer wardrobe.
The Kaj Wide Leg Pant also proves itself as an essential piece, with a sharkbite hem and wide-leg, billowy fit that gives an elevated twist. Whether worn in hues of crisp white or mid-blue, Kaj offers the best of both fashion and function.
Lastly, the Pembroke Jumpsuit has your back for those warmer days when putting together a
whole outfit just isn’t on message. Soft twill fabric, a cinched waist, and XCVI’s signature exaggerated
pockets make the Pembroke an easy yet exciting go-to look. This jumpsuit offers a stylish, one-piece
ensemble that pairs gorgeously with any shoe. Available in black and light yellow-green, the Pembroke works perfectly with sandals for a summer barbeque or heels for date night. After all, you deserve clothes that go from day to night and feel great even as the weather changes.
Perhaps best of all? Each of these pieces is machine washable, meaning you’ll never have to worry about taking that pesky trip to the dry cleaner. Instead, you can focus on doing the things you love in wearable clothes that put a spin on classics all Spring and Summer long.
