Recently, we unveiled our limited-edition collection, Marilyn Monroe by JCPenney. Inspired by the offscreen Marilyn, the humanitarian, artist, and entrepreneur, this classic, twelve-piece capsule collection blends effortless everyday style with chic, on-trend essentials. It features Summer-ready staples, like crisp sundresses cinched at the waist and sleek ankle pants with polka dots. This collection can be worn in endless combinations for years to come. It is available in sizes XS-3X, so any woman can recreate a preppy Marilyn Monroe look with classic stripes or a whimsical feel with playful floral patterns. These styles are available only for a limited time, until late May, and are launched with a special edition of Marilyn Monroe-inspired Keds. They are timeless, and modern, and will make you feel most glamorous at the same time.
Timeless Dresses that Make You Look—and Feel—Your Best
Offscreen, Marilyn Monroe preferred to wear comfortable dresses with simple silhouettes in black, white, coral, or navy blue. Her favorite styles were enduring classics, like this midi wrap dress, which looks as fresh now as it did the moment, she first wore them. The cotton dress, with its American navy color and chic floral print all over, is perfect for all your fun Summer plans. Other great options for daytime are this midi sundress and this Chinese coral midi dress with a cinched waist and two side slip pockets. They are ideal for brunches, picnic dates, and more.
Classic Tops Designed for all the Roles You Play in Life
Some things can never go out of style, like this perfect blue mock-neck sweater. Its soft and stretchy fabric fits like a second skin, so you can move without restrictions. Plus, the versatile design makes this pullover sweater the perfect match to American navy blue shorts, jeans, and even white pants. And when you’re heading to the office, consider this long-sleeve blouse. It’s made using 100 percent premium cotton and has a beautiful waist wrap.
Smart Bottoms that are Easy to Wear, Wherever You’re Going
From chino shorts to jeans and ankle pants, every piece in this collection is as comfortable as your fave tracksuits but looks way chic by comparison. And yup, they are versatile. Pair the bottoms with T-shirts, blouses, or shirts and you’re ready to head out. They will literally give you extra minutes in bed every morning.
All-Day, Effortless Keds are a Girl’s Best Friend
Keds always look fresh and playful, whether you’re pairing them with a sundress, relaxed shorts, slip skirt, or jeans. Their versatility makes these sneakers a worthy wardrobe investment, especially in Summer when you’re slipping into clothing from the Marilyn Monroe collection. You can start shopping with a black or classic white slip-on shoe followed by lace-up Keds with floral print.
These styles are as fresh now as the day she first wore them. They are classic, chic, and effortless enough to get you Summer-ready in a jiffy.
