The search for the perfect pieces to give our new season outfits a fresh vibe seems never ending, however, when striving for the ideal balance between versatility and visual interest, the Club Monaco label always seems to be a good source of insight. The same can be said for the December 2012 lookbook, but also for the previously seen November 2012 lookbook which features a variety of delightful new season alternatives in the simple yet clever manner the label has gotten us used to.

Those who love feminine vibes even in the cold season will definitely find the multitude of dresses and skirts presented a delight. From subdued to vibrant yet classy, the new options are definitely tailored to suit a variety of needs. If proportions are clearly defined and always manage to create the desired impact, when it comes to textures, the options are more diversified. Prints are also subtly represented in the newest lookbook and it seems that according to the brand, abstract is the way to go.

When stocking up on new season essentials, going for an optimal blend of interest and functionality is one of the best options. With discreet accessories, the look can be greatly enhanced even though you only opt for functional alternatives that meet your needs. Draw inspiration from these effortless chic alternatives when looking to liven up your mid season looks with a fresh new touch.
