Everyone, meet Kate.
She’s an adorable twenty something who wanted to try out a fresh look for 2013.
Kate told us, “I never try things outside of what I usually wear, which tends to be casual and comfy clothes. I always end up buying the same things.”
On her day to day style
“I do try and wear more feminine styles but on the average its solids that are not very fitted. I dress more to blend in than to stand out.”
To help Kate add some city chic to her wardrobe we teamed up with Club Monaco and one of their stylists to give this lucky reader a makeover.
Check out Kate’s new look in the photos below.
Kate started her day casual in a grey long sleeved t-shirt and light colored jeans.
When she walked into Club Monaco she was greeted by a friendly sales associate, offered some Pellegrino, and then she met with Sarah, one of Club Monaco’s stylists. They discussed Kate’s style preferences and started pulling some outfits.
The first look Kate tried on was an updated casual look with a sexy surprise in the back. Kimberly sweater, $98.50, Katniss Pant, black $198.50, Dappled infinity scarf $69
The second look was a bold step forward in Dutch Blue Jessie Pants, $149.50, a Black Regan top, $119.50, a Caroline Necklace $69.50, and Schutz Elida Pumps $99.

Sarah also showed us how one of Club Monaco’s amazing jackets and some of their great accessories could be added to complete the look.
The fourth look is perfect for a night out in the city. Skye Shirt, Cream $69 (on sale), Violet Feather Vest $198.50, Marianna Skirt, Sequin gold and purple $129 (on sale)

And the view from the back:
Kate’s face lit up when she put on this Leandra Dress in Bramble Berry $249 with a Shannon Snood, $89 (on sale). No doubt that is her color.
But what had to be our favorite look of the day was this peplum skirt and glitter collared blouse. She looked amazing! Kate Peplum Skirt, Dutch Blue $129.50, Harley Shirt, Cream with gold collar $139.50, Christina Bracelet $59 (on sale)
And just like that Kate’s Club Monaco makeover and goal of updating her wardrobe was complete.
Kate’s favorite look:
I really loved the black leather skirt with the white jacket but my favorite look was the sequin skirt with the white shirt.
On Club Monaco:
I really enjoyed the quality and detail and accessories in the store. I also like how the store is not cluttered and they have the styles laid out to help you find an outfit.
On her Club Monaco makeover experience:
It was beautiful! Being in there felt like when I was shopping for my wedding dress. It felt like being in a luxurious store and the customer service was phenomenal. Everyone there is so nice and fun.
