I find Maison Scotch, the women’s line from Amsterdam-based Scotch & Soda, a bit overwhelming. The pieces range from youthful logo-wear, to feminine floral prints, to minimalist basics. And it’s all rolled together into a massive online shopping experience shared with the men’s and kids’ lines. There is just so much stuff.
The currently running Winter Sale is similarly overwhelming. There is a lot to see. After cruising through the hundreds of sale-priced items twice, I narrowed down my picks to five super chic, timeless items that vibe with my own minimalist-leaning aesthetic. Check them out and let me know what you think…
This stretch blazer has a unique shape that feels a bit vintage, but is sleek enough to not come off as costume-y. The wool/ cotton/ poly blend should wear nicely. I’d pair it with a tee and jeans to let the jacket take center stage.

I haven’t had a chance to try Maison Scotch’s denim line yet, but I’m always drawn to the look of their jeans. They make great use of twisted seams and gathers, a hallmark of much more expensive Japanese denim lines. These vintage-wash Mademoiselle jeans are priced right for giving the line a spin.

Admittedly, I’m a bit confused about how this travel wallet is both “100% leather” and “faux pony hair.” I’m pretty sure that here in the States we just equate the term “pony hair” with what it really is: calf hair. No matter what you call it, this is one seriously chic travel wallet.

This silky blouse is a smart wardrobe building block and will look great with skinny jeans, or even layered under a cashmere cardigan. It’s available in black, off white, and pink – all great neutrals.
→ Buy the Maison Scotch Pleated Blouse, $58.00 (was $115.00), at scotch-soda.com.
This wool/ poly blend coat has a timeless look that makes it a great investment, even with winter half over. It’s also available in a dusty pink shade, but I think the black version has a high-end look that the pink option doesn't quite hit.
