Timeless Style

New to the West Coast is East Coast luxury brand J. McLaughlin, a 41-year-old clothier with a cult following now open on La Jolla’s Girard Avenue. Brothers Kevin and Jay McLaughlin opened their first shop in 1977 on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, ‘selling classic clothes with current relevance for men, women, and children. The brand has since expanded to 100 stores around the country and a thriving online presence. Known for a perfect fit, the brand uses technical fabrics that are wrinkle-free and travel well. Although traditional, J. McLaughlin is never dull, offering colorful, flattering prints and ‘cheeky details’ like Bermuda shorts embroidered with martini glasses.

Frankly Fashionable

A closet full of clothes yet nothing to wear? Busy entrepreneur and mom Nicole Frank says she has the answer. Last November, the USC business grad bunched The Wardrobe Evolution, offering versatile, mix-and-match dressing for the modern woman. “I needed comfortable clothing that allowed me to easily transition from day to night,” Frank explains. “I didn’t have time to come home and change between work. meetings, and events with my daughter.” The line features key pieces — tops, pants, dresses, jackets, and jumpsuits — in easy care, high performance fabrics inspired by her daughter’s equestrian experiences. Quickly change up styles by adding collars, dickeys, and sleeves. Zip off the long sleeves on a tailored top, for instance, and zip on flouncy, lacy sleeves to take the look horn day to night. While the line is web-based, you can also find fashions at the company’s Rancho Santa Fe style studio, charitable events, and in-home trunk shows. Frank will show off her collection at the Nativity School Boutique in Rancho Santa Fe on November 8 beginning at 8am. 858.381.0428;
