Though Nicole Miller is a pro at crafting the perfect evening dress (indeed, her elegant, figure-flattering frocks practically beg for a night on the town!), she’s now unleashing her talents in the realm of sportswear. And after getting a taste for Nicole Miller Artelier’s vivid-colored separates, dynamic prints, and relaxed silhouettes, we’re certain the line will serve as a standard go-to for style savants everywhere. The new collection, aptly named after Miller’s passion for art as well as the New York City atelier where her staff still drapes her first samples, caters to the modern woman, one devoted to function as much as fashion! The mélange of versatile pieces includes something for every occasion: a sleek jumpsuit for a friend’s dinner party, a chic romper for that Cozumel getaway, a zigzag maxi skirt for weekend brunch with the girls. Though saturated splashes of color and fresh, edgy details are infused throughout Nicole Miller Artelier, the clothes retain the designer’s distinctly feminine style aesthetic and luxe quality.

Suspension Rip Stop Romper ($355)
Though this laidback one-piece acts as the perfect beach topper, its sunny yellow hue and bold geometric motif make it a chic option off the boardwalk too.

Georgette Wide Legged Jumpsuit ($550)
Both a high neckline and blouson waistline inject this glamorous black jumpsuit with fashion-forward appeal. Accompanied by jewelry and heels, it’s even dressy enough for formal occasions in place of a LBD.

Georgette Button Down Blouse ($255) & Digital Stripe Tie-Dye Boarder Skirt ($300)
For a go-anywhere ensemble, pair a breezy sleeveless button-down with a striped maxi. Intriguing details, like the top’s practical pockets and the skirt’s dip-dye hem, take these pieces from stylishly simple to simply sublime.

Diagonal Striped Sweater Dress ($385)
This skintight sweater dress offers a cool alternative to your standard cocktail number. Contrasting thick and thin stripes work to flatter your shape, while a striking black-and-neon color combo makes a lasting impression.
