I first featured Jude Connally on Stylephile last August. Flirty, fun, functional—the line has immediate appeal. Anchored by bold colors and chic graphic patterns that live in a space somewhere between classic and contemporary, it would be easy to assume Jude Connally is exclusively a summer line, but so many of the silhouettes, including long- and three-quarter length sleeve dresses and tops, can be perfectly paired with tights and boots for a refreshing mid-winter look.
In the past few weeks, I’ve put my new Jude Connally dress, the “Babe” dress with a lattice pattern in green and nay blue, to the test. When you have something in your wardrobe that is so versatile it can be worn to brunch at Zeldas, work meetings, a Providence Restaurant Week dinner and an appearance on The Rhode Show, you know you have a winner. (Just think of the CPW: cost per wear!) Pieces range from $158-$208. Select Jude Connally pieces available at Michael Hayes.
