Every so often, just about all fashion girls find themselves in a self-proclaimed style rut. It's an unfortunate phenomenon, looking into your closet and — despite it being filled to the brim with quality buys — getting that sinking feeling that you simply can't find anything you feel like wearing. While you could make like Mary Kondo and cast off anything that doesn't spark joy, an equally viable solution is searching for a couple new pieces to cultivate some style inspiration. And luckily, a fresh batch of new designers on Shopbop just arrived — so consider the stylish retailer a great place to start.
A new year always brings a host of new designers to try, and 2019 is starting off no differently. Editors have already spotted exciting new names at several of the style set's favorite stores (like Net-a-Porter's newest handbag brands), and it appears that Shopbop is following suit.
A slew of new brands have made their debut in the retailer's Designer Boutique, joining the likes of existing fashion girl favorites Costarellos, Proenza Schouler, Saks Potts, and many more. And if you're finding little inspiration in your existing ensembles, shopping a few stylish new brands may be just what you need to reinvigorate your wardrobe for 2019.
Where to start? Stock up on some chic denim pieces from Shopbop newcomer Colovos, because you'll likely see a rise in Canadian tuxedos this coming season (Hailey Baldwin recently sported the throwback style). The brand's fresh take on denim separates, like this $360 asymmetrical pencil skirt and a $675 two-toned shirtdress, can easily swap in for your well-worn jeans or other over-done outfits for a totally updated look. Clean lines and creative details make Colovos' essential pieces stand out, and serve up exactly the solution for your uninspired attire.
There's plenty more where that came from. Shopbop's offering several other newly-minted brands to behold, covering everything from wedding-ready formal wear — like this gorgeous mint dress by mcgraw — to sweet shoes that'll have you wishing for spring. Peruse the new brands' picks and you'll also find uber-feminine ruffles and bows, beautiful full-sleeved blouses and frocks, and unique handbag shapes to shake up your accessory game.
Snag a couple key pieces from some of the best new designer's Shopbop debuts, below, and stay tuned for more good things from each this year.
Light-wash denim with an asymmetrical hem give this staple piece a stylish update.
Despite being a single piece, this two-toned shirtdress gives off Canadian tuxedo vibes.
A plunging v-neck, feminine ruffles, and a contrasting velvet belt make this dress ideal for a wedding or celebration.
A jumpsuit can be just as elegant and feminine as a dress — case in point, mcgraw's black and ivory jumpsuit with a v-neck and full sleeve.
Full sleeves and an oversized bow provide a flirty, feminine charm, while the mustard hue makes this dress feel unexpected and fresh.
Florals aren't exactly groundbreaking, but thanks to blown-up, larger than life flowers on this printed silk blouse, it still feels incredibly unique.
Polka dots are forever a classic, especially when rendered in black and white mary janes.
An oversized bow gives this red and white polka dot slide tons of whimsy and charm.
Pop & Suki
Pale pink leather and a prim top handle give this handbag a feminine vibe, while the shape and leather luggage tag provide a utilitarian slant.
