Modern & Contemporary Clothing for Women

Good news! This just in…the most fashionable clothes ever are here!
Your clothes are meant to be seen…so why not make them super stylish and unapologetically unique? But don’t get fashion police crazy—you don’t have to follow every new look or wear every single trend at once. It’s all about taking the latest inspiration (from your Pinterest inspo boards, obvi) and creating a style that makes you feel good. Shop women’s contemporary clothing and modern clothing style from Macy’s impulse brands such as Free People, Vince Camuto, Lucky Brand, RACHEL Rachel Roy, Bar III (created for Macy’s) and more!

8 Wardrobe Essentials for the Modern-Day Fashionista:

1. Jeans. Denim is always in…yet finding a pair that fit you perfectly is the key to a contemporary look.
Shopping Tip: High-rise denim is having a moment right now, so stock up. This trendy style helps reduce the appearance of bulging at the waistband because they sit higher on your torso.

2. Sweaters. Cardigans, pullovers and cropped sweaters. You need them all. Sweaters are super versatile and make great layering pieces for cooler weather.
Shopping Tip: Lightweight sweaters with perforated details and pastel colors are on point.

3. Dresses and Skirts. From special occasion dresses, party dresses and skirts to everyday styles for the office…all we can say is, yes please! These are contemporary clothing must-haves.
Shopping Tip: The new way to show off your stems—skirts and dresses that hit below the knee! These long length styles are super chic and not to mention work-appropriate.

4. Suits. A modern (business) woman isn’t complete without a suit. But make it fashion. You want styles that are form fitting. Look for fun colors or patterns and pair it with cool blouses.
Shopping Tip: It’s all about the pastel power suit. Pastel colors are everything you need and more right now.

5. Tops. Whether it’s a simple tee or an elegant blouse, a woman’s contemporary fashion top pulls together a modern outfit.
Shopping Tip: Details! Ditsy floral prints are in, as well as crop tops, tie-front tops, ruffle tops and graphic tees. We’re also loving tie-dye prints, metallics, and all white tops. Pair a white top with white high-rise jeans for an “it” girl look.

6. Outerwear. Don’t stop at just the outfit…your last layer should be fashionable too. From anoraks and trench coats to asymmetrical jackets, bomber jackets and moto jackets, you’ll uncover many styles to complete your contemporary look.
Shopping Tip: Colors, details and prints. Women’s coats that follow the same trends as in tops are major #fashiongoals.

7. Pants. Because you need more options than jeans. Rotate your looks with pull-on pants, athleisure joggers, cropped pants, cargo pants, chic leggings and more!
Shopping Tip: We are loving wide-leg pants. This trendy pant lengthens your legs and accentuates your waistline. Try out a wide-leg jumpsuit for an even bolder look.

8. Accessories. It’s all about the details. Round out your outfits with modern shoes and an “it” handbag. Don’t stop there—accessorize with dainty jewelry pieces.
Shopping Tip: Blue never looked so good—blue bags and blue shoes are in! These accessories create that desirable coastal cool vibe. We also love natural handbags such as straw totes. Stack on the glam with stackable jewelry and make a statement with statement sneakers.

Aspiring to this level of chic at all times… shop Macy’s today for amazing modern and contemporary clothing for women!
