I love the relaxed yet chic look of this lightweight cotton tunic ($65) paired with pink twill capris ($59) and cork wedges ($99), and I could definitely see myself wearing this on both weekends and to work. These pieces are from the newly launched L.L. Bean Signature line with designer Alex Carleton. When asked about the collection, Carleton says: "These pieces are rooted in classic American sportswear, and can be interpreted in many ways. There are great basics, plus unique items that work in a broad range of closets. So I think it's for people who lead versatile lifestyles. It's not just town, it's not just country. It can be both...We looked for archive items that seemed especially relevant today. Our initial approach was to reinterpret those items - putting new twists on vintage ideas. From there it grew into creating brand-new products, but we're always using the archives for inspiration, even when we're making things that are new". Definitely a step up from their chinos and plaid shirts (which still have a place in my heart too), I'm looking forward to seeing what else they bring into this new line
Here is another simple, classic, yet versatile look from the new L.L. Bean Signature line. The comfort and luxury of a navy cashmere cardigan ($139) gets an upgrade with chain link gold brooches ($55) and slim leg stretch denim jeans ($65). And the bonus is that you can wear the sweater all year long, layering it will a nice fitted shirts in the colder months.
