Wardrobe Workhorse: The White Tee

The white tee. Is there a more versatile piece in your closet? A flattering blank canvas, it remains a classic example of chic simplicity. Try dressing it up with raw-stone dangle earrings and bright, sky-high pumps. Throw a bold Rag & Bone blazer on for a professional look or pair it with floral Alice + Olivia pants for evening cocktails. The white tee is the perfect neutral grounding piece, so have fun and dare to experiment with vibrant colors, stark blacks, and wild prints.

Ask Shopbop: Camping with Style

I’m going camping and have no idea what to wear. How can I look good but still enjoy the woods?

Camping is definitely an adventure, so you need clothes that move and lots of easy layers. My favorite look is a light cotton dress with Minnetonka moccasins and a Eugenia Kim straw hat for added shade.  Boyfriend jeans are another packable option. They’re comfy and super durable: pair them with a knit hoodie and a printed tee. You can also throw Current/Elliott shorts over a one-piece swimsuit. To ensure a fun and stylish time, just pack lightweight layering pieces, supportive shoes, and most importantly, marshmallows.

Introducing Magda Berliner: A New Take on Vintage Lace


Launched in Los Angeles in 2004, the Magda Berliner Vintage Collection is rooted in the designer’s fondness for Victorian-era finery. Each piece is hand-assembled using vintage lace, making the dresses and skirts truly one-of-a-kind. We spoke with Magda Berliner about this modern-meets-romantic collection.

SHOPBOP: Tell us about the Magda Berliner Vintage Collection.
MAGDA BERLINER: This segment of my main collection, Magda Berliner, began about eight years ago, and it’s become integral to my identity as a designer. When I launched Magda Berliner in 2001, I promoted using vintage fabrics, and the Vintage Collection is an extension of that ethos, while maintaining the romance and femininity of the brand.

SB: Each dress is hand assembled using vintage lace. What inspired you to take this direction?
MB: Like many, I have a soft spot for Victorian-era cottons, and I had accumulated some edgings—ribbons and bits of vintage lace and crochet. Bored and inspired one evening, I started piecing together the bits on my dress form, and voila! After years of doing this hand assembling, I have an eye for what the garment will become, and I welcome the challenge of building new designs each season.

Lacedresses

SB: Can you tell us a little more about how you source the lace you use? Who sews the pieces?
MB: Visiting flea markets and shows for years, I have befriended many collectors and dealers who keep me in steady supply. I have the same seamstress for the ready-to-wear collection sew the vintage pieces as well.

SB: How does your location, Los Angeles, influence your design?
MB: The climate does influence my work. We are quite lucky to have fair weather most of the year, and the lace works well for that lifestyle. I must confess, a little bohemian vibe has rubbed off on me after all this time in the Canyon.

SB: Who is the woman you’re designing for?
MB: She is independent. She knows her own style and wears it well.
