Karen Kane Review and Giveaway


I've been familiar with the Karen Kane brand for years, but mostly through thrifting. I knew that the company made great, durable basics, and that when I came across their wares in my thrift outings, they constituted fabulous finds. But since I'd never bought their products new from department stores or online, I was excited to get the chance to review a few pieces from their 2011 spring and summer lines.* Several of these items are not yet for sale - so you'll have to keep your eyes peeled over the next few months - but I'll link to the ones that are currently available!

Above you see me in a pair of Karen Kane jeggings. I've worn these babies twice already (see the previous outfit here), and I am incredibly impressed. I own a pair of very legging-like jeggings from Hue, a pair of very jean-like jeggings from the Gap, and now these. This Karen Kane version presents the best merge of denim and legging that I've yet experienced and has quickly become my favorite pair. Initially, I was put off by the wide black elastic waistband (which is undeniably odd), but since it will never, ever be seen by anyone but me and gives the jeggings an incredibly comfortable and relatively high rise, I got over my doubts in no time flat. They stretch but don't get distended, launder beautifully, fit very close to the calf, and feel truly fantastic.


I am totally enamored of this slinky, sassy, black Asymmetric Hem Dress.The jersey is heavy and drapes beautifully, and the style is so fabulously versatile. Here, I styled it with a black shrug and studded gladiator heels, but this tank-style dress will look just as gorgeous on its own, once warmer weather permits.



This printed scoopneck dress is so adorable, I can hardly stand it. The graphic print reminds me of a birch tree, and seems simultaneously geometric and organic. The ruched cap sleeves are comfy and cute, the A-line skirt is flirty and flattering, and the scooped neck leaves just enough room for a fun statement necklace. Total love.


Cobalt blue is super trendy this spring, so I was tickled to receive this darling printed tank dress (here in plus sizes, though it will eventually be available in non-plus.) It's a lined dress with a micro-mesh overlay, so it has a wonderfully floaty feel. The above-the-knee hemline is just to my taste, and I adore the simple, elegant, flared-skirt styling.


And finally, this lace-and-tulle confection is just wild, isn't it? I'm not sure I would've picked it out for myself, but now that I've got it in my hot little hands, I'm cooking up more and more fun ways to deploy it. The dress is another tank style, a simple sheath shape, but has a matte black lining, black lace overlay, and rectangles of tulle stitched on for a truly funky texture. Take a peek:


I dressed it down with my jean jacket for this photo shoot, but it'll be fabulous dressed UP, too. Just imagine it with a rhinestone bracelet and hot pink lips. Smokin'.

Now that I've got you worked up into a frenzy over these fabulous offerings, let's talk about the giveaway portion of this post, shall we? You won't BELIEVE the fantastic prize that Karen Kane is offering to Already Pretty readers: A $200 Karen Kane Styling Day.

This means that if the winner lives within 50 miles of a store that carries Karen Kane, the company will arrange a day for the winner to meet with one of their stylists and pick out an outfit for $200 or less! If the winner lives outside of that radius, Karen Kane will send a $200 AmEx gift card and provide a 1-hour over-the-phone style consultation as the winner browses looks online. Amazing! Generous! Awesome!

I'm glad to hear about this brand- new brands are fun for me to look into, and I have never heard of them before. Great to hear they have good quality- so few sources do nowadays.

Thank you for chance!

In looking at their spring collection, and I adore the floral print dress styled with the jean jacket, and they have some really good-looking basics sprinkled throughout. I would love to try some of their pants- they look really classic and tailored.

I'd love to try those jeggings -- so far I've stayed away from both jeggings and skinny jeans because I'm not willowy, but this blog and others have convinced me that they can look great on curvier people too. I think they'd look great with the green shawl cardigan/jacket in the Spring 2011 collection, with a relatively long top underneath.

There's this fabulous floral dress with a black background and a light denim jacket. I think I'm definitely going to need a denim jacket once the weather gets too warm for my leather jacket. Plus the dress has a simple shape which I love and a big pattern which I also love!

Noooooo I can't join the contest becuase I'm Canadian :( Will sign up for the facebook page. Those look absolutely lovely on you, Sal. The cuts of the a-line dresses are amazing and I'm ESPECIALLY adoring the one with tulle!

Thanks for the review!

If I won, I would have trouble deciding between one of the cute black dresses and the black dress with white embroidery. Very cute.

I liked KK on Facebook. I am looking to incorporate more dresses into my wardrobe, but I have great difficulty in finding things I like. All of the black & white sheaths featured in the Spring Collection are just my style: simple, but with a touch of something to make them unique. Love!

Hi Sally! I subscribed to the Karen Kane newsletter.

In the Fall Collection there is a really cute outfit that I adore. It is a white, blue, and black leopard print dress underneath a dark brown sweater. So cute!

Kathryn said...

YAY!
Karen Kane is one of my favorites. I have a dress from last summer that is gorgeously designed and I've been able to wear in many different ways and contexts... I'm anxious to get some more in my life. :-P

1. Subscribed to the email newsletter.

2. I really like the knee-length black dress with white embroidery detail in the Spring 2011 collection. It's basic but has that beautiful extra touch to give it personality; I could also see it dressed up or down.

Thank you!! I'll cross my fingers!

The asymmetrical hem black dress made me GASP when I saw it. I think it would make my curves look amazing (especially the scoop neck), and would be an awesome base to play with bright colored accessories.

I love the asymmetrical black dress you're wearing from the Spring collection, but I'm trying to build my professional wardrobe (and be thrifty about it), and to not always wear so much black, so....I'd go for the black and *purple* wrap-type looking dress with long (3/4?) sleeves in the Fall collection.

Unless I just can't resist the asymmetrical black dress from the Spring collection, which may be the way the cookie crumbles... :-)

I went to the website and liked a lot of the merchandise. There was a pink/salmon colored cardigan paired with a floral sheer blouse and jean jeggings. I loved the color and the sheer top for spring. Also liked a black floral print dress w/ a v neck. Lots of versatile pieces.

I tend to panic every year around Christmas, not knowing what to wear to the Christmas parties. I want to look cute, but age appropriate, and not too casual, but special. And I don't want to freeze-so nothing sleeveless. :)
I liked an outfit from Holiday 2010--gold top, black drapey cowl sweater, dark wash jeggings. I'd add cute black ankle booties, and big gold hoop earrings.

I signed up for the Karen Kane newsletter, and I picked out the most amazing, gorgeous dress - I think it's in the spring collection. It's a 3/4 sleeve green floral number and I think it would look really spectacular on my curves with my strawberry blond hair and blue eyes. I really hope I win! My wardrobe is sad.
