Matilda Jane Clothing is known for mixing and matching pretty prints.
Florals with stripes, polka dots with geometric patterns, and unexpected colors fill the Matilda Jane “Look Books” that are released most months of the year.
This July, Matilda Jane added a simple twist to its line by releasing a line of closet staples called “Not so basics.”
The new release will be a permanent addition to the line overall, although some items are limited to what is currently in stock.
The “Not so basics” collection features favorite silhouettes like the Lap Dress, pictured above, but in colors like basic black, bubble gum pink polka dots and periwinkle blue.
New black and white striped leggings are reminiscent of the first Joanna Gaines + Matilda Jane line.
The pieces are simple, but not plain, with sweet details like ruching at the ankle or unexpected buttons.
One of my favorite basics in the women’s line is a maxi dress available in black and navy.
The company has been releasing “sneaks” of its August line, including precious bow-adorned backpacks. Trunk Keepers, the ladies who sell Matilda Jane, say the “Not so basics” collection will pair well with the August line as well as past Matilda Jane pieces you may already have in your closet.
