We just discovered Merritt Charles, a chic, up-and-coming label created by LA-based designer Lacey Horning, who recently opened an additional OC office. And we think it’s a must-have. Pieces are so chic, comfortable and flattering. Merritt Charles is bridging the gap between casual wear and high fashion.
Lacey uses her family name, Merritt Charles, for this collection of modern classic staples made locally (mostly in Los Angeles) from high-end Italian fabrics. Merritt Charles designs luxury casual apparel that you can keep and wear for years. Choose from sweaters, tanks, hoodies, denim, cardigans, a great infinity scarf, and more.
Lindsey Garland, buyer and owner of the fashionista’s favorite boutique, Westerly in Corona del Mar, says that Merritt Charles is ideal for SoCal lifestyle.
“The fabrics Lacey uses are the best quality, and you can see that in the way the line feels and fits on the body,” Garland said. “We blow out of it at Westerly. It is a no-brainer purchase for our clients. It takes them from home to carpool to a lunch date, around town and back. It's a beautifully made, and easy to throw on and go."
You can find Merritt Charles at chic boutiques in Orange County including Westerly at 2909 E. Coast Highway in Corona del Mar. 949. 313.7111; Candace Paige at 324 Marine Ave. on Balboa Island. 949.673.5707; and 11th Moon in Laguna Beach at 1259 South Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach. 949.715.3254.
You can also shop and see the new spring line at Merritt Charles.
