“Laugh More. Gripe Less. Ignore Critics. Say Yes. Order Dessert. Love Life.” is the motto that adorns every tag of Gretchen Scott apparel. Taking inspiration from the unique flower basket Gretchen was designing at the time, the brand began in the CEO’s own living room. Inspired by all of the fun life has to offer, Gretchen Scott set out to create a brand that you can play (and party) in-and she has done just that! Gretchen worked in many different roles prior to creating the brand, and gained many lessons along the way. She attributes much of her design inspo to her extensive travels (especially in India), resulting in vibrant colors and complex patterns.
While Gretchen loves to use these inspirations to create beautiful designs, she also makes a point to create attire that is versatile and easy to wear. Clean lines, forgiving silhouettes, and timeless styles with a playful twist make these pieces the perfect attire to take you from errands to dinner, or the school pick-up straight to the pool. Life is too fun to not have fun-loving clothes as well. Gretchen Scott is the perfect brand to embody this fun-loving, exuberant lifestyle. Have lunch with the girls at 1 but the kids’ tennis match at 3? The Breezy Blouson Dress is the perfect option for you, with its crisp collared design and waist-accentuating belt. Meanwhile, the Priss Blouse is versatile for any occasion, and can be worn tucked or untucked.
Not only does Gretchen Scott embody the best parts of life-she also gives back so others can have better lives as well. 100% of the sales are donated to various projects, and they cover all of their own costs. The Elizabeth’s Hope Blouse was their first philanthropic project, and sold thousands of blouses to benefit the Children’s Brain Tumor Project. Not only will you look amazing in these tunics, dresses, and jackets-you’ll feel good wearing them, too!
