The Affordable & Chic Female-Founded Brand You Need to Know
In collaboration with Modern Citizen.
Shopping in 2021 is hard. Navigating the overcrowded web of brands to locate a platform that isn't fast fashion, but doesn't boast items that cost more than your rent is trying, at best. Let alone finding one that fits your personal style. In a crowded marketplace, female-founded Modern Citizen offers fashion, beauty products, and home goods that are—no surprise here—fit for a modern woman. Forgoing the categorical trap of trying to restrict a collection to workwear, daywear, or eveningwear, their surprisingly comfortable clothes will take you anywhere and everywhere. With clothing options that range from a voluminous tiered maxi dress to a slinky tank with back cut-outs to breathable wide-leg trousers, these are items that provide a wardrobe foundation for a range of personal styles. Below, we've selected nine of our favorite items, but we highly recommend a scroll through their entire collection.
Yuna V-neck Ribbed Dress
Between its simple silhouette and ultra comfortable fabrication, this simple tank dress is guaranteed to be a staple in your summer style rotation.
Tade Ribbed Cotton Knit Top
The Tade tank can certainly qualify as a going-out top but could also be layered beneath a jacket for more professional atmospheres. Not to mention, we're obsessed with the intricate ribbed-knit design.
Lily Ribbed Cotton Front Slit Knit Skirt
Speaking of ribbed knits, this figure-hugging skirt is also a winner—the slit really sealed the deal. Wear this with the above top or mix and match with non-coordinating separates.
Aster Stretch Wide Leg Pant
We have yet to find a closet that didn't have a place for a classic pair of black wide-leg pants. We guarantee these will pair with just about anything.
Cassandra Tie-front Wrap Dress
A simple tank dress instantly becomes interesting with knotted detailing at the waist. Comfortable yet chic, wear this with anything from sandals to loafers to block heels.
Jude Cropped Wrap Blouse
This is the perfect super versatile top. It's polished enough for the office but could also be dressed down with a pair of jeans and a fun sandal.
Lyra Organic Cotton Tiered Maxi Dress
Some days, there's simply nothing better than an oversized maxi dress that won't cling to or restrict your body. The neutral hue of this one provides the perfect backdrop for fun accessories.
Chase Relaxed V-neck Sweater
We guarantee this simple v-neck sweater will become a staple in your closet. Pair yours with anything from a full maxi skirt to a pair of shorts as we prepare to transition seasons.
Allegra Gathered-neck Sleeveless Blouse
When you need a more polished blouse, we recommend opting for this chic draped number. A pair of wide-leg trousers will make for an ultra refined look, but swap them for a mini skirt and you have a whole new look.
