The first part of our highly anticipated Clueless Collection is finally here!! The first release includes six patterns: Dionne & Women’s Dionne knit blazers, Cher & Women’s Cher woven a-line skirt, and Womnen’s Amber & Amber + Elton knit vest. As much as we LOVE the fun Clueless inspired looks and LA photo shoot, we are even more excited to show you how to style these classic pieces for every day looks that will work for your wardrobe 🙂 For more inspiration, check out our Clueless Collection Pinterest Board too!
Dionne & Women’s Dionne
The Dionne pattern is a knit blazer pattern, featuring mid-length or long sleeves.
Dionne is great for the work place! You can pair it with dress pants and blouses for a more formal dress code, or with jeans if your dress code is a bit more casual/relaxed. You could try P4P’s Wiggle Dress, SOS Pants, or Palazzo pants to recreate some of these office looks! Megan also layered the new Amber vest under hers 🙂
It’s also a cute date night piece. Pair it with a simple tee and jeans, a little statement jewelry, and a good pair of heels, and you’re ready for a night out! Looking to recreate these looks? Try the Kourtney tee with your favorite pair of RTW jeans and a long necklace or statement earrings.
Dionne is still gorgeous, even with more casual outfits! It’s a great layering piece to add to your fall and winter wardrobes, and an easy way to transition to spring later in the year! Try these looks with Bree, Mya, or P4P’s Boho Babydoll!
The girls’ Dionne is every bit as cute and trendy as the women’s! It’s a great piece for our tweens and teens that are starting to look for more mature styles, and it is SO CUTE on the little ones. I’m not sure I would buy a woven blazer for my preschooler, but the knit blazer is just perfect; it’s similar enough to a cardigan that I know it will get worn.
Dionne pairs perfectly with ready-to-wear pieces, but it also fits in beautifully with the rest of the Clueless Collection and many of our existing patterns! Try these looks with P4P’s Boho Babydoll, Stacey, Kourtney, Mya, and of course our new Cher pattern!
Amber + Elton & Women’s Amber
Your family Christmas picture prayers have been answered! 😉 The Amber and Amber + Elton knit vests are SUCH a quick sew, and an easy way to make coordinating items for siblings! Amber + Elton (and Women’s Amber) features a crew or v-neck option, as well as three different lengths.
Amber + Elton is a great unisex layering piece! It’s an easy piece to throw over jeans and a long sleeve tee, or you can dress it up with khakis and a polo! You can try layering it over Charlie, Charlotte, or Lauren to get similar looks! For a more casual style, you could pair it with Dylan or Stacey! Even our tween testers were happy with the Amber + Elton. Check out some of our favorite looks below!
The Mermaid team was loving Amber paired with all things plaid, especially plaid shirt dresses! *Pssst – we found really cute ones from Amazon and Walmart.* You can also hit up clearance racks and thrift stores for men’s sweaters to upcycle!
We can’t wait to see how you style your Amber vests! Which length will you try first?
Cher & Women’s Cher
The Cher skirt is a woven quarter circle skirt with two options – view A is a plain front skirt with a side zip closure, and view B is a placket front with button or snap closure. Cher has one length (about mid-thigh), while women’s Cher has three length options (micro mini, mini, and knee). Both patterns feature optional belt loops and pockets!
Corduroy and faux suede were perfect fabrics for fall & winter styling! We also loved the look of metal snaps (and they are much quicker than buttons!). Try pairing Cher with Stella, Darcey, Kourtney, or the Tai bodysuit when it releases (soon!!!)!
Wondering what foot wear goes with Cher? It looks great paired with most any shoe! We loved it with booties, taller riding boots, and cute ballet flats for cooler weather styling, and wedges for your warmer weather styling! Want a bit more coverage? Layering over leggings or tights is a great option!
The girls’ Cher is SO perfect for every day wear. Recreate some of our favorite looks with P4P’s Heartbreaker Cami and Darcey, the upcoming Clueless Cardigan and Tai bodysuit, or a basic top like Charlotte! You can also pair it with your favorite RTW denim vests and cardigans for even more great looks.
We hope you love the Clueless Collection as much as we do!
