From Her Chevy Chase Store and Beyond, D.C. Resident Nina McLemore Dresses Women with Simple, Modern, Timeless Style
With stores across the country and clients including some of the world’s most powerful and influential women, fashion designer Nina McLemore offers a beautiful, elegant and colorful collection made in New York from the finest natural fabrics.
Nina recommends washable tech-stretch equestrian cotton made in Switzerland. It looks contemporary and youthful in jackets, pants and dresses and travels well.
Nina recommends lightweight merino wool with a slight basket-weave texture, especially a jacket with three buttons closely spaced. It doesn’t bunch when you sit. It’s very smooth while standing. Wear with a dress and two-inch heels for a powerful yet feminine look.
Nina recommends silk dupioni, which has texture and iridescence and travels well. The reversible three-quarter-length jacket is very elegant and elongating. The ruffled neckline is very flattering for the stage or photos, and jacquards with a touch of gold are great at night.
