Always centered on the target and hitting the trends at the exact right moment, Sean Monahan and Monica Paolini’s brand Sea constantly puts out the kind of clothes that ahead-of-the-curve women want.

Never fussy or attention-hogging, the ApparelMagic client’s prefall collection stood out for the very items that made it blend it: classic styles with of-the-moment updates.

Sticking with a nipped waist and accentuating it with flared skirts and voluminous sleeves, the proportions were as sophisticated as they were flattering.

Balloon-leg pants were cropped at the ankle and hung off a wide waistband. A striped blouse turned professional dressing on its head with its leg o’ mutton sleeves.

Other looks were decorated with folk motifs, like a navy prairie dress banded with ribbons of trims. Worn open at the neck and with a pair of sandals, the look was less pioneer woman and more Greek-isle honeymooner.

The Sea girl, though, is no stranger to a bit of fun, and with pom poms and ruffles on lace tops with billowy sleeves and statement shoulders, she definitely got it.
