It’s the age-old dilemma for the fashionable girl: How to go from your day at a desk to post-work cocktails looking great and without making a full change? Sisters Jen and Nicole Nosratian sought out to solve that problem when they launched their line, Circus Royalty, just a few months ago. A made-in-LA collection of super-unique tops, Circus Royalty is fit for fashion queens, standing out in an over-saturated fashion market. There are swing-y tanks with bow details, off-the-shoulder blouses with voluminous sleeves and one-shouldered tops with dramatic asymmetrical hems. All of them practically guarantee to turn heads. It was when Jen—a former publicist for David Yurman—went through a tough breakup that she decided to bite the bullet and pursue her longtime dream of starting her own line. With her sister Nicole by her side (whose day job is being an attorney), that’s exactly what she did. “We were always asking each other: What should I wear? We were trying to dress fashionably and on trend without looking overdressed,” says Jen. Seconds Nicole: “We were usually in denim so we were always on the hunt for tops and could never find what we were looking for.” While some of the tops are statement-makers more suited for the hours after the sun sets, others are ideal for the work-to-fun transition–and all are seriously chic. Currently only sold on the Circus Royalty website, the collection ranges in price from $180 to $360 and is constructed of beautiful silks and cottons in an effort to make the pieces feel special—which is exactly how the woman who wears them will feel. “The goal of the collection is to create pieces that women can wear to feel sexy and confident without having tried too hard,” says Nicole. “We design statement pieces that can be worn again and again.” Here, a few of the standout must-haves from Circus Royalty. Click through, and get ready to join the Circus.
Perhaps the pièce de résistance of the collection is the Candace Crop Top with its dramatic ruffles and short hemline. Style with a great pair of dark denim and prepare for compliments.
This stunner can be worn loose for a theatrical effect or tied up to keep things simple—either way, you're going to feel and look like a million bucks.
Ideal for taking from day to night, the Rosie tank is a little bit precious, a little bit sexy and a whole lot of fabulous.
There is just something special about this easy-to-wear, off-the-shoulder option. The flattering A-line silhouette works with a variety of bodies shapes, and the sleeves can be tied into knots or bows, depending on the look you're going for.
Liana Long Sleeve
The perfect candidate for day-to-night dressing, the Liana long-sleeve top boasts a whimsical, flowy shape that makes any outfit just a bit more fun.
An update to the ubiquitous off-the-shoulder blouse, this style takes it a step further with voluminous sleeves that steal the show.
