Earlier this month, we finally got a chance to sit down with Lee Chan, our Chief Fashion & Design Advisor, and interviewed her on the design elements and inspiration behind the Socialite Collection. We compiled the best of her thoughts in Q&A form. Enjoy!
From Socialite’s tech features to fashion & design elements, we’ve covered a whole lot of ground this past month. As you can (hopefully) tell, we’ve dedicated so much time and brainpower into creating the perfect wearable for all women alike.
You can sport this outfit anytime of the year, really. Since it's mid-fall, we decided to pair the gold Kingston with a flirty lace dress in burgundy (this season's favorite color), a pair of classic taupe suede booties, and a soft leather "carry-all" tote bag. To top it off, we complemented this chic ensemble with a pair of romantic gold drop earrings from local Austin jewelry designer, Kendra Scott. This flouncy day-to-night outfit can be worn with a simple cardigan in the office, or dressed up with a contemporary black blazer for the night out. Feeling the winter chills already? Throw on a pair of black tights and a wool coat, and you'll be ready to endure the cold weather in style.

This week, we're pairing the beloved Calder with that modern street-chic "cool girl" style. Perfect for any occasion; you can sport this outfit in the office, at a work happy hour, to a girls' night out, or even date night. Luxe textures paired with chic layers and a flattering color palette is the perfect recipe to looking effortlessly fashionable. You can pull this simple look together by grabbing your wardrobe staples (i.e. black skinny jeans, leather jacket, neutral-colored top, and a pair of sexy pumps), swipe on some red lipstick, and voilà, you're ready to hit the streets in style!
Looking for a pop of color to turn your outfit from drab to fab? Hit a home run with the Duchess! You'll be sure to make a statement with this Socialite. This week's #StyleWithSocialite features a gorgeous deep olive green pencil skirt to accentuate your curves in all the right places, and a neutral slouchy turtleneck to keep your top portion more voluminous (and less fitted) to balance the whole look. If you're feeling bold, swap the turtle neck for a fitted blouse and leather jacket. Throw on a classic pair of heeled ankle boots to add some height and elongate your stems! Then, finish off your look with some fun accessories, including gold geometric drop earrings and a rather understated compact bag to hold a few of your basic necessities. Say hello to chic and sexy!
Back in the 80s, “power” suits were deemed as appropriate attire for the working woman. Coming in a limited array of boring, flat colors, adorned with bulky, padded shoulders, with an utter disregard for the feminine figure, suits were seen as uniforms that would help women climb the ladder in the professional workplace. Fortunately nowadays, the modern day woman is still able to make her way up to the top, minus the lackluster ensemble. Let’s just say - we’ve come a long way.
With the holidays and new year just around the corner, it's no surprise that many of us are scrambling to put together a few outfits that will truly make a statement. Whether it's a holiday office party or an unexpected end-of-year celebration, you'll be looking your absolute best with our #StyleWithSocialite inspiration.
If you couldn't already tell from our social media feeds, we thoroughly enjoyed our first time at CES, the world's largest consumer technology show! We want to thank everyone who came to visit our booth, shook our hands, and took the time to understand our brand and vision.
