Melly’s Must Haves: September Edition


You’ve watched her during Chico’s Facebook Lives, sharing the details and inspiration behind our unique collections. Now, Melly, our Head of Design, chooses her most-wanted pieces, trends, colors and more each month for her Must Have series.  

Melly’s official title is VP of Design at Chico’s, and she’s a veteran in the fashion and retail world. She was also a senior instructor at Parsons School of Design in New York. 

Check out Melly’s must-have picks from August.

What pieces must our readers get this month?

Part shirt. Part jacket. The new must have.

The perfect pants upgrade for fall.

A fall essential. Everyone looks fabulous in this.

Studs and chain detailing make these really stand out. Plus, they’re comfy!

Classic shape, modern details. Wear with dressy or casual outfits.

Why is faux leather great for fall?

Buttery soft, our new faux leather is lightweight and easy to care for (unlike its real counterpart!).

What do you love about our new modern trousers?

The elegant ease and proportion of our new trouser silhouette lengthens the leg and has a comfort stretch waistband. 

How has the way we wear animal prints evolved over the years?

Animal prints have evolved into fun, fashion-forward styles and are mixed in unexpected ways, different scales or even head to toe. Animal prints are timeless classics and mix effortlessly with black, brown, camel and red. 

This or That

To help you get to know Melly a little better, we asked her to choose between “this” or “that” everyday joys.  

Red or white (wine)? White
Running or hiking? Hiking
