Emily McCarthy Clothing Spring 2020 Collection

January 27, 2020

Savannah, Georgia is definitely one of my favorite Southern towns, and every time I go I like to stop in at The Shoppe by Emily McCarthy. Emily made a name for herself with personalized gifts and paper designs. I’m super excited to help them announce their Spring 2020 fashion line!


The Shoppe has sold clothes before, but this is the first Emily McCarthy Clothing collection, and y’all, it is good! They sent me one of their Emily style dresses in the classic cheetah spot colorway and I love it. I call this dress my “skinny mini dress.” I am a medium (size 6/8) and I have hips. The style of the Emily dress is INSANELY flattering, (see photo above, I am not that tiny y’all) which is my favorite thing about the dress. Unlike a lot of dresses that tie, this dress actually ties at your waist instead of at your hips. The placement of the tie also makes it super comfortable. I paired the dress with these black suede kitten heels but I also think it would look great with these black suede smoking loafers if you want a more casual look. 

The tie is wide and sturdy, making it perfect for a bow accent if you put in the effort and the exclusive classic cheetah spot print is super cute and classic! The cheetah print is available on a bunch of the clothing designs, plus there are different cheetah spot colorways that are so fun and original. Cheetah print is definitely my new black!

Small town girl turned coastal living designer, Emily’s designs are unified by their vibrant prints, signature monograms, and of course, a dash of cheetah print. I asked Emily a little bit more about her spring collection and her favorite ways to wear it:

What was the inspiration behind the Emily McCarthy clothing line?

Staying true to the goal of our brand – classic silhouettes with a colorful punch.

How often are you releasing new items?

We are releasing new collections quarterly. We have summer, fall, and holiday lined up and are currently working on Spring 2021!

What are some trends we can expect to see this spring?

Lots of bold, bright colors. Animal print is also in, which of course makes our hearts happy! Florals and tropical are still in, but we’ve tried to do a new twist on them.

What’s one staple every girl should have in their closet? 

A tailored blazer. Pair it with anything from jeans to a dress or a suit. It’s the most versatile piece in any collection.

What’s your favorite accessory to pair with these beautiful clothes?

A gold shoe and a festive earring.
