Back to School with Curator Clothing

It's the cut that stays with you. There's just something about the shape of the coats, dresses, tops and skirts from San Francisco-based Curator Clothing that feels personal, customized, just-right.

It must be because Stacy and Deirdre, the design duo behind Curator's minimalist pieces, take a solutions-based approach to their work, tailoring each seasonal line of clothing to challenges in their own wardrobes. They make the changes you want to make to your own closet, turning a comfy basic into something infinitely wearable and polished.

Take the Dunaway jacket, for example. Who hasn't woken up on a cold Monday morning, wanting to pull on the weekend's hoody and jeans instead of a boxy coat and slacks? This is your answer: a full length, hooded coat with darts and tucks in all the right places. Made of extra thick organic cotton, it's fleecy and warm without any frump. 

Then there's the blousy ease of the Izzy top, perfect enough before you realize it has pockets...

...as does the flirty little Brette dress, in soft-as-butter cotton jersey and a range of pretty colors.  It's a great piece to take from casual to "going out," and from summer into fall with a light jacket.

Bespoke carries two other lightweight pieces you can easily transition into cooler weather.

With a slightly longer hem in back, the Hudson henley is perfect for layering, and you can tie a collared shirt around the Thea dress, in jersey with flattering geometric lines. The Curator team turn their attention to every last detail, down to the "love me tender" care instruction tag sewn into each piece of clothing.

School is back in session, but summer hasn't quite let go. Take advantage of these interim days to invest in a few key items you can wear all year round.
