The Shape of Spring: It’s All About the Box

This season, the quiet simplicity of the rectangle is squarely a winner. After too many rounds of handkerchief hems, boxy tops, tunics and dresses look fresh and new. Uncomplicated, ageless, elegant — not to forget versatile — we truly love the way spring is shaping up. Here’s a smattering of recent arrivals: 

Fresh from Los Angeles we have Me & Arrow. The black cropped top features Dolman sleeves and a flattering scoop-neck. The second top is slightly longer and boxier, with cuffed half-sleeves. The natural linen color plays well with others!

Made of organic hemp and cotton, this Prairie Underground top is delicately striped, soft as a feather and beautifully breathable. 

Another terrific Prairie Underground piece, this time a dress. With pockets! Available in a navy and white pinstripe.


Me & Arrow again with a  super soft slate/cadet blue tunic. With, you guessed it, pockets! We at Momo truly do love utility. 

So how best to wear the square? Pop a cropped top over a slip dress (one of our favorite secrets, über comfortable and no showing/binding at the waist) or pair it with slim pants or jeans. The boxy dress makes a super backdrop for jewelry or a scarf, or if you desire more definition, add a belt. Done!
