We love the weekends. Aside from the much needed relief from the weekday rat race, it’s a great time to experience things that bring happiness and enjoyment to your life. Take the time to explore your surroundings or perhaps enjoy a luxurious and lengthy afternoon brunch, whatever you choose just do it with a little joie de vivre. Allow us to give you the only three tips you need to minimize stress and maximize weekend bliss.

 

1. Listen.

Weekends should be carefree and light, so it’s only right to set the mood with a bright and breezy playlist. Check out our Jigsaw Weekend Playlist for some unbelievably sunny tunes from the likes of HAIM, Fleetwood Mac and Solange Knowles.

 

2. Explore.

Get off the beaten path and do something out of your comfort zone. Skip your usual neighborhood haunts for that new restaurant you read about online or check out a flea market for unique pieces to accent your home or wardrobe. We personally love to take advantage of fleeting events that are here today and gone tomorrow like pop-up shops and food festivals. These events offer the unique opportunity to meet people outside of your typical circle, explore more that your city has to offer and making timeless memories with your closest friends or family.

Angelenos–check out the Pop Up Vintage Marketplace in the Cooper Design Center on Saturday April 5, which features a live DJ and open bar.

3. Relax.

The combination of comfort and style is an essential component to weekend style. Leave the stilettos and pencil skirts for the office, and relax in a pair of our amazing Twill Straight Leg Stretch Jeans. We released the spring colors of our twills this week in a delicious plum, captivating ginger and an ethereal silver.  Made of a combination of cotton and spandex, the Twills offer a super comfortable stretch and flexibility without the fear of bagginess. We’re so certain that the Twills will become your new favorite pants that we’re offering FREE return shipping on the Twills through April 20th if you don’t fall in love. So what do you really have to lose? Head over to Jigsaw to peruse our wide variety of Twills!

We love when our clothing tells a story.

Tulip1

This season, our standout tulip print does just that. The tulip print is many things: whimsical yet graphic, modern yet distinct. Our tulip print was hand-painted exclusively by one of Jigsaw’s in-house designers. Brigitte Atkinson, Jigsaw Fabric Buyer and Technologist, sheds light on the origins of the print.

Our tulip print was inspired by a vintage swatch that we found at a flea market in Paris. We instantly fell in love with the tulips and knew we had to feature them in the spring/summer collection. Our in-house fabric designer hand painted the print to match our palette for the season.” 

As Brigitte mentions, the story began in a flea market in Paris where a simple pattern stood out amongst a sea of items loved and forgotten by previous owners. She goes on to discuss trends and movements within the fashion industry,

“There is a real trend moving towards hand-drawn prints, going back to traditional, more organic methods of screen-printing as opposed to digital printing which can appear very hard and impersonal.”

The tulip print breathes life into something once loved. What most excites us about the print is that it expresses our ability to create something new from something old. We’re aiming to tell a story by revisiting practices of the past because often those are the tales we want to preserve for the future. When it comes to our beloved tulip print, the details are truly in the fabric.

With the leaves sprouting and the ground finally unthawing, spring is the perfect time to press the restart button. It’s the beginning of warmer climates, longer days and the promise that summer is only around the corner. The theme of rejuvenation crosses over into our wardrobes, which means one thing: refresh! Here are our picks to revitalize your closet just in time for the temperature change!

Silk Bomber Jacket.

A constant dilemma during spring is finding the perfect lightweight jacket for those chilly evenings. The Silk Bomber Jacket is featured in a luxurious cream silk in a sporty, track jacket silhouette. We love the feminine pleating on the back of the jacket and the dainty pockets. The wonderful thing about the Silk Bomber Jacket is that it fits perfectly as either a stand-alone top or a jacket. Perfectly pair this versatile lightweight number with bootcut denim and a proper blouse for a casual yet sumptuous date night outfit.

Droplet Print Jersey Dress. 

If you have to pick one piece to revitalize your spring wardrobe, choose something bright, printed and versatile. The print is distinctively tonal featuring an array of blues and a pop of yellow. Additionally, the silhouette is flattering on a wide variety of body shapes and the jersey ensures comfort and flexibility. We love the many ways that you can style the Droplet Print Jersey Dress.  Wear this item casually with a jean jacket, canvas slip-on sneakers and solid mustard scarf or dress it up with knee-high boots and a sparkling statement necklace.

Mia Sandals.

White sandals seems quite outdated, however Jigsaw modernizes the style in the best way possible. With a chunky heel and soft kid leather, these shoes feel like heaven. That, coupled with the pristine bone hue and the delicate ankle straps make the Mia Sandals a perfect pair for spring. At Jigsaw we love pairing these heels with cuffed boyfriend denim for an added element of height and intrigue. For a practical option, wear these beauties with an amazing spring floral to truly embody the essence of the season.

In the deary days of winter, it can be hard to remember that warmer temperatures and a flurry of blossoming color are preparing to spring just underfoot. To give your mind (and wardrobe) a boost, try out these fun accessories to bring a pop to your style and a spring to your step! Bold, bright color implemented into any outfit will give you fun, fresh feeling of spring style.

 

A lightweight scarf brings warmth on chilly morning commutes, and can be wrapped around the shoulders as a shawl indoors for a touch of color.

“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

 

They’re called ‘statement necklaces’ for a reason! Eye-catching and vibrantly saturated, Tagua necklaces feel as organic as they do enlightening.

 spring4 spring6 spring5

 

Want more ways to bring spring into your daily schedule? Scented candles in soft floral notes are a great way to brighten your home. Adding a zest of lemon to your meals, such as in salads or sweets, can also bring an instant feeling of brightness. Try a bit of lemon in warm water instead of your afternoon tea for an instant, healthy pick-me-up.

A sale means the opportunity to score big on both essential and statement styles, and as the new year begins, what better time to build your perfect capsule wardrobe? Make the most of the sale by centering your selections on mixable separates that will help you transform styles you already own into completely new (and chic) ensembles!

Celebrate Spring (early!)

Even in the middle of winter, remembering spring is just around the corner might be all you need to brighten your mood. Celebrate the sunshine ahead with bright, bold prints in the colors of blossoms to come; this printed top makes a great piece to mix under your favorite blazer or cardigan till weather warms up, and can be worn over pants, trousers or skirts.

A Step in the Right Direction

The cold may tempt you to stick to your favorite flat winter boots, but don’t let your wardrobe fall into a slump! Step it up with a heeled ankle boot that can be worn under jeans or with more dressed up looks. The versatility of these boots means you can wear them every day of the week, and the block heel offers more comfort and support than traditional heel styles (meaning they can better brave the elements!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

pants

Bridge Your Work and Weekend Wardrobes

Want pieces you can wear any time and to any occasion? Trust in tailored trousers like these. They can be styled casually with tops or a tucked-in tee, or given a more polished tone with a silk blouse and blazer. Best of all, they look great with any heel or flat, so you can choose your comfort level. To make the most of the look, try it with a top and cardigan combination on Friday at the office, to seamlessly step right into evening plans after work.

Don’t Forget the Essentials

The sale is the perfect opportunity to stock up on those Jigsaw favorites your closet always seems to need. Our lace trim camisoles make great layering pieces to offer a feminine frill under any top or sweater, and feel ultra soft and sensuous to the touch. Versatile colors like deep blues, soft pink tones, and understated neutrals help you mix and match any styles in your wardrobe.

Now that the holidays are over, our minds are wandering off to warmer climates and preparing for spring vacations and a fruitful year ahead. It didn’t hurt that in December, we spent an entire day on the Malibu pier shooting our Spring/Summer 2014 collection (and soaking in a little winter sunshine). The calm seas and empty pier lent perfectly to the cool, crisp tone of the upcoming collection, and made for a memorable day of photography and fashion. Today, take a peek behind the scenes with a few photos from our Instagram.

The day began with a bit of styling from our Director of Design, Mary. With the help of production coordinator Jessika, the collection took on a chic, sophisticated style sense when prints met patterns and unexpected top-and-skirt combinations came together.
