Karen Kane’s latest Summer designs bring a snazzy California-like appeal for women on the go. Her designs easily transfer from lunch with the girls to date night with Mr. Charming. They also transfer easily from work  to a day at the beach. How, do you ask? You have to know the right pieces to wear with your plans in mind.  When you have a busy schedule and have a long to-do list, planning your wardrobe ahead of time can help your day go a bit easier and Karen Kane clothing can help you look great at each occasion. Both a win win in my book.

Below are several looks that you can utilize on a daily basis with a busy schedule.  Kane has a way with bringing her designs to your reality.  Be sure to keep these wardrobe staples in mind for your many Summertime events. Karen Kane’s wide selection will help you transition from one event to the other with ease and elegance. My favorites below make living on the go; easy, fun and fashionable.


If you are looking to escape the city and want to head to the shore, choose one of Kane’s lightweight,  flowy tops that can easily be worn with skinny jeans or  colored cropped denim. They can also can be worn with short shorts and/or  over your bathing suit as a sexy cover  up. This top and others like it will give you the most for your money once you allow it to be as versatile as it was meant to be.



Looking for modern? Try Kane’s geometric 60’s inspired dress. The geometric pattern channels the retro feeling of Piet Mondrian’s geometric designs. Pair the pin tuck capri’s with the geometric sequined top or a striped tunic and you’ll be  feeling hip and retro with every step.  The dress pictured above is perfect for a special lunch, a baby shower, or even date night.



Polished and beautiful, this ensemble can take you anywhere you want to go! Do you plan on shopping with the girls? How about a night on the town?  Simple yet adorable, this outfit is well thought out. The white blazer is a wardrobe staple that is versatile and will stand the test of time.  The colored skinny jean is a youthful trend for those eager to bring color into their wardrobe and the sequined tank adds a little splash of polished pizzazz.   All three pieces are staples that are interchangeable and easy to mix and match with other items in your closet.



Karen Kane may market her clothing for the true Californian, but this wrap dress is perfect no matter what state you live in. The wrap accentuates the smallness of the waist and the delicate fabric lays “just so” across the body.  Every successful women needs this wrap dress in her closet.  Red, a color of power and strength is known to bring confidence to the person wearing it. Have you been working hard for that promotion at work? Maybe you need to get your client to sign a new contract. Wearing this dress will certainly make your peers think you are taking over the business.  This dress is perfect outside of work as well.  Try wearing it to your next anniversary dinner.  The mesmerizing red in the candle light will undoubtedly allure him.  The power of red can do wonders for your psyche not to mention to the psyche of those around you!



Summer dresses are a must during the hot months.  This painted maxi dress by Karen Kane is light and comfortable. I love to wear this  maxi dress shopping, out to parties and during fun family BBQ’s.  A comfy maxi with a splash of color is fun and vibrant and a wardrobe must have for those of you who like to be comfortable while making a statement at the same time.  Depending on the occasion, you can wear your Summer dress  with heels, cork wedges, ballet flats or even flip-flops. Wear this particular gorgeous maxi to your next event and you’ll be thanking Karen Kane all day! It’s lightweight fabric is soft to the touch and hangs just right on the body, leaving you feeling secure and comfortable.

    Yes it would! My thoughts exactly! 😉 Can’t wait to see you there! The Sparklecorn Party is going to rock! -SL

  3. I admire Karen Kane’s commitment to American manufacturing. Very few fashion designers have their pieces made in the USA today. I hope to connect with them at BlogHer ’12 to learn more about their manufacturing process!
