Just ICYMI, Nelissa Hilman recently launched its latest Spring/Summer '23 ready-to-wear womenswear capsule collection in conjunction with the brand's 10th anniversary. The collection features a range of wardrobe staples such as oversized shirts, cozy tailored tops, and chic buttoned-down shirt dresses in neutral tones with pops of pastels.
The inspiration for the capsule ready-to-wear collection is the brand’s founder Nelissa Hilman, known for her minimalist style."The collection is an ode to the Nelissa Hilman women who enjoy clothes and shoes that are simple but never plain, wearable but never tiresome - with a vision to create a modern uniform to be worn and re-worn for seasons to come, and with a personal point of view."
We have compiled a few outfit ideas to take you from the boardroom to dinner parties easily and comfortably to display the collection’s versatility and how you can make it work for your everyday style.
Seize the day in Nelissa Hilman's drawstring midi dress in black. Loosen up the drawstring for AM and team the look with a pair of Thea crossover strap sandals in gold. If the occasion calls for dressing up, cinch the dress at the waist to accentuate the female figure and opt for the Saloma pointed heels. For the Midas touch, consider completing the look with a metallic shoulder bag and a pair of Nelissa Hilman's Wasis hook earrings for good measure.
Elevate your monochrome style and pair an artsy folded cuff tailored shirt with an asymmetrical midi skirt. Pair it with Gwen buckled square-toe flats, or opt for the Luna slingback sandals if you prefer a bit of height. Consider a french tuck for a relaxed look and fully tucked in to accentuate the waist. We recommend styling the look with minimalist accessories such as the Maha brooch and Make it Happen scrunchies for a touch of nonchalant glamour.
Orange is one of the season’s trendiest colours, and we are here for it! Put a fresh twist to your style repertoire, opt for a caped paneled poplin shirt in light salmon, and team it with a pair of pleat-paneled trousers. Complete the look with a pair of fisherman flat sandals or Zaynab crossover sandals in Mustard. Consider pairing the footwear with socks for an irreverent take on styling.
Dare we say that midi dresses are the most universally flattering length of a dress– you cannot go wrong whether you are tallor petite in size. Nelissa Hilman’s long sleeve midi dress in denim blue is perfect for a woman on the go or just looking for something cozy to lounge in. For a casual look, wear it with Darla lace-up sandals. If you want to dress it up, team it with the Jane square-toe slingback sandals. Take the styling further and cinch with a skinny belt and minimalist accessories for an effortless edit.
