NEW COLLECTION DROP: INSPR-D BY NATALIE OFF DUTY FOR MACY’S

There’s a brand new drop in-stores at Macy’s from my INSPR-D by NATALIE OFF DUTY collection! Time to get your OFF DUTY on. And we called it just that: the OFF DUTY collection because it’s all of your easy go-to’s. Updated track pants and jackets along with gorgeous satin blouses and skirts. Everything allows you to move and groove. Dylana and Deborah joined me at Macy’s Herald Square to quickly check out the floor one very busy Sunday afternoon. The space looked incredible. I adore all the color we used to design this whole line. Think pops of hot pink against navy blues, pops of orange, and burgundy. You can still get your hands on my signature OFF DUTY track suit. Here we are dancing our way through the collection and playing dress up.

HOW TO STYLE MY JACKET DESIGN FROM DAY TO NIGHT | VERONICA BEARD X INTERMIX

The “Natalie Off Duty” x Veronica Beard blazer for Intermix goes day to night.

We just had the launch party for our exclusive capsule of jackets now available at Intermix here in NYC at the gorgeous Little Owl Townhouse. It was so amazing to see my design on display, hanging so perfectly inside a glass box. It’s so stunning and iconic, that you do just want to put it on display! But today, I’m showing you how wearable and effortless it is, and how easy it is to style from day to night. It’s a bold, everyday staple that’s so luxurious that you’re going to want to show off to the world. I wanted to design a jacket that felt special and unique, but can be worn forever. It stands out amongst the crowd thanks to it’s gorgeous hue, slim fit, and gold button detailing. Rock n’ roll glam. That’s my go-to trend for fall.

For day, I paired it with this stunning Proenza Schouler velvet maxi dress. I like that this touch of velvet and tie-dye together with my blazer. Goth punk anyone? So chic.

For night, I always add in a touch of sparkle. I paired my blazer over a stunning Derek Lam sequined top and chained jean. It’s classic rock n’ roll with a feminine touch.

TheNatalie Off Duty” x Veronica Beard for Intermix jacket is now here! I worked with the two Veronica’s of Veronica Beard to create a bold, extra sleek statement blazer for this fall, and you can only get it at Intermix!

It has presence, just like the bands that make up the music that I live for. What you’ll notice below is the very special leopard lining. That with the rich herringbone pattern and eye-catching hardware instantly elevates what is now your go-to staple. I’m so excited to see you guys wearing it!

THE OFF DUTY COLLECTION IS LIVE! INSPR-D BY NATALIE OFF DUTY FOR MACY’S

The brand new INSPR-D by NATALIE OFF DUTY collection for Macy’s is now LIVE!

Again, it is SUPER Limited-Edition, so grab what you love TODAY.

Today is the launch day of the OFF DUTY collection, and I couldn’t be more excited to bring the “OFF DUTY” mindset to life. “OFF DUTY” has been such an iconic part of my brand, and it can be interpreted any which way you choose. Now, you can wear it on your sleeve, everywhere you go. This collection feels just so natural and easy. It’s casual and cool with a pair of sneakers yet can immediately feel elegant with a pair of heels. My off duty style is all about pairing sets whether it be sporty track sets or sophisticated satin sets with a twist. Each piece has both a masculine and feminine side. I find a trend like Glam Leisure to be the easiest thing to put on each morning.

With this collection, I was INSPR-D by my favorite 80’s films and actresses of the time: Molly Ringwald, Kelly Lebrock, Kate Basinger, Lisa Bonet, and Demi Moore. They all nailed that really glamorous 80’s style with a sporty, off-duty element. I can see Molly Ringwald wearing the track jacket over one of her amazing feminine dresses. Then there are some personal accents that I added to the satin pieces like the beautiful mandarin collars and stunning embroidery. I was really inspired by the elegance in the outfits of Won Kar Wai’s “In the Mood for Love”. It was one of the most beautiful and romantic movies I’ve ever seen. This particular accent reminds me of my Chinese heritage. My mother wore dresses with a beautiful mandarin collar all the time. I liked adding that special something to my OFF DUTY collection, and especially on the beautiful satin skirt and black set that can easily be mixed and matched. This collection is inspired by so many things: the sporty track sets and icons of the 80’s, my hertiage, and creating that balance between masculine and feminine.

I design for the individual and iconic woman. She’s elegant, she’s fun, she’s fearless. She isn’t afraid to be who she is and shine. You, my readers, are just that. You’re adventurous and experimental. There’s that craving for a little bit of every type of style combined into one. My two collections bring both sides of my style to life: the romantic who loves a statement dress, and the woman who finds a track suit to be her favorite type of suit. My everyday muse can wear anything and completely make it her own.

Sleeves were huge for me this year. I think there’s so much elegance and masculinity in a really bold shoulder. I added that into our track suits and into a few of our blouses to really make them pop. Even with the classic sets, you’ll notice something special: a ruffle, a stripe, or a really cool OFF DUTY print. I love a tracksuit alone with a great pair of chandelier earrings and a simple stiletto heel. I could take that same set and give it a really cool chunky sneaker or hiking boot. I find a track pant to be my everyday essential. I travel so much. I wear them on the airplane with a sweater, then I’ll wear them to dinner with heels and a sleek jacket. I like that feeling of effortless comfort that’s still totally chic, and I hope you do too.
