ATLANTIC-PACIFIC X HALOGEN // THE SPRING 2020 BUYING GUIDE
The Atlantic-Pacific X Halogen Spring 2020 Collection will launch on Nordstrom.com on Monday, May 4th at 9am PST / 12pm EST. Some product may be searchable or be live slightly before that time period, so if you have your eye on anything specific, make sure to track my Instagram stories as I’ll be updating what is live with swipe-ups.
This is the only warm weather offering within our collaboration and I couldn’t be more excited. As an added bonus, and a thank you to our loyal customers, we are launching with the entire collection at 30% off! All items will eventually go back to their regular ticketed prices so take advantage while you can! FYI, the prices listed below are before the discount.
For your sizing reference, I am 5’7″ and typically wear a size 0/XS in all of the pieces in the collection. I typically wear the following sizes in other retailers: 0 in J.Crew, 4 in Topshop, 4 in ASOS, and size 25 in most contemporary denim brands. As an FYI, Halogen generally runs slightly larger than brands like Topshop and ASOS. Hopefully the sizing information, pricing, and product details help you make more informed purchasing decisions. And, if you have any questions at all, please reach out in the comments section. If you have bought the collection in the past sizing is consistent with the fall and holiday collections.
A few other answers below to FAQs:
All apparel pieces will be offered in sizes 0-18 and XS-XXL with select styles offered in 20-24 and 1x-3x. There will not be a petite offering of the collection this season.
Nordstrom does offer international shipping (check here to ensure your country/region is included) but the product typically doesn’t load for international customers until about 24 hours after the initial launch for US customers.
While all product will be loaded by 12 EST on Monday 5/4, some product may flow to the site slightly earlier or slightly later (we try to avoid product flowing in later). Please check back here or on my social channels on Monday for any updates.
Without further delay, the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen Spring 2020 buying guide…
This easy smocked dress is incredibly comfortable and versatile. I have been wearing it with heels and sneakers as it is so easy to dress up or down. The elastic waistband and functioning front placket make this style great for so many different body types. With utility pockets and slightly elongated short sleeves, this dress is the perfect mix of feminine and sporty. The woven material used to make this dress is the same fabric we’ve used in past collections, is a great weight for spring/summer, and takes color so well!
THE FLORAL SHEER TIERED MAXI // $169 ($118.30 at launch)
This printed organza dress with a separate printed lining is the ultimate statement piece. Like many of the dresses in the collection this style looks great with easy flats or a more dressy heel and jewelry! This dress is tiered with an elastic waistband to create a bit of ease in the body.
THE ORGANZA BOW FRONT DRESS // $169 ($118.30 at launch)
Ruffles, ruffles, ruffles! This style has so much beautiful detailing from the double front ruffle, peplum waist and big, big bow! This organza plaid is the perfect pastel piece to marry back to all your basket bags and summer sandals.
This maxi is in the same cut as the floral maxi dress, but done in a stunning organza stripe. This style comes with a pink slip, and similar to the floral maxi, is meant to be sheer through the sleeves and top of the neckline. If you love this stripe but are looking for a slightly different style for your closet, we are offering this same layout in a short sleeve utility top and skirt!
Created in the most beautiful pink floral mesh material, this short sleeve tiered dress is one of my favorite pieces in the collection. I have been wearing it with the pink lucite belt from the collection (shown below) and easy slides.
THE BOW FRONT DRESS // $169 ($118.30 at launch)
As an update to the very popular bow blouse and bow dress from past collections, we created this stunning white piece. This short sleeve style is created from a feminine embroidered organza floral material, and of course we added tulle layers in the skirt and dainty grosgrain bows at the front placket. Like many of the styles in the collection, this dress features an elastic waist and back zip to get in and out with ease.
THE MULTI MESH DOT TULLE DRESS // $149 ($104.30 at launch)
When I saw this confetti dot material I knew we needed it in the collection. We loved it so much that we added a top as well. This dress is super sweet with a v-neck line and midi length skirt!
THE SLEEVELESS WOVEN DRESS // $79 ($55.30 at launch)
Coming in an olive and pink dot as well as a multi stripe, this dress is the perfect little summer frock. This style hits right below the knee and has a subtle scoop neck and dainty chest pocket. I love it back to the polka dot utility jacket and easy stripe swing coat!
Our favorite collection button down has been updated for the season. This style comes in four happy prints and includes a covered button placket, pointed collar, and blouson sleeve!
THE ORGANZA STRIPED BUTTON DOWN // $89 ($62.30 at launch)
Sweet meets sporty in this organza striped top. This utility top with a cute puff sleeve pairs back perfectly to a simple pair of white denim or, if you are looking to be bold in all stripes, its matching skirt counterpart!
THE MULTI MESH DOT TULLE TOP // $119 ($83.30 at launch)
Tiered tops are my favorite – so we had to bring one back for spring! This style might be one of my favorites in the collection. Sleeveless with a sheer neckline, this adorable style is perfect paired with skinny jeans and a strappy sandal. This style is meant to be a bit more voluminous and hits right at the high hip.
Ruffles, bows, and peplum! This style style has a matching skirt but can also easily be worn back to a more casual pair of pants. I am loving both the more traditional navy and white combo as well as the pink and green stripe…too hard to choose one over the other!
Made for layering, this ribbed tank is a spring must-have. It is available in three stripe combos and two bright solid pops. This tank is incredibly soft, meant to fit tight to the body, and has great recovery – so you can wear it again and again without it losing its shape.
THE STRIPE ORGANZA SKIRT // $129 ($90.30 at launch)
Skirt alert! It wouldn’t be an Atlantic-Pacific collection without skirts! This easy elastic waist skirt is a midid length and can be worn back to the easy tank in yellow with espadrille sneakers for a more casual look, or with our strappy pink sandals and matching organza stripe top for something a little more editorial. If you bought the organza skirt from fall (red or navy plaid) this skirt has the same construction. For the spring collection, we removed about 4 inches from the inseam of this style so it is more of a true midi length!
THE WHITE ORGANZA SKIRT // $149 ($104.30 at launch)
This style has the same fit and length as the stripe organza skirt above, but is made of a beautiful white embroidered organza. We are continuing the detail of the peek a boo tulle to create interest and add volume!
THE NAVY FLORET SKIRT // $139 ($97.30 at launch)
This skirt is slightly shorter than the white organza and stripe organza skirts, hitting just at the knee (the other two hit below the knee in true midi lengths). This skirt is made from a unique 3-d floral mesh fabric (same as the pink dress above) and it so cute back to a simple white tee!
This style (along with its matching jacket) is a re-cut of the popular heart jacquard skirt from last fall’s collection. The fit and styling is the same, but the spring version is updated in a fun yellow floral jacquard fabric.
Featuring a midi length with an asymmetrical ruffle detail, this skirt is one of my favorites in the spring capsule. It pairs back to the matching ruffle top, but I also love it back to an easy knit tank or a graphic tee and converse.
This skirt is cut from a heavy twill and features these whimsical prints for spring! This skirt is the most structured/thick in the collection and has exaggerated box pleats at the front to create a full sweep. This style has a side zip and is meant to sit at the natural waist. Keep scrolling to see the AMAZING matching jackets to these skirts…
This 3/4 seed stitch sweater comes in two solid and three fun stripes. I have found myself wearing and re-wearing the lilac and red combo as well as the multi! They just seem to go with everything in my closet. This sweater is meant to be fitting through the sleeve but have a bit more ease in the body.
This easy swing style has a slightly cropped body, longer sleeves and is meant to sit away from the body. I love this striped silhouette back to skinny jeans and simple sneakers! It is an incredibly comfortable sweater that is made for the weekend.
THE FLOCKED HEART SWEATER // $79 ($55.30 at launch)
By far the most feminine sweater in the collection, this sweet pink and white stripe has a navy flocked heart pattern throughout. The style is meant to be fitted in both the body and sleeves, which makes it easy to tuck in to trousers.
Cute kick flare alert! Cut in a great stretch material, these high waisted pants are cropped and flared, creating the quintessential spring pant. I am loving these pants back to so many different items in the collection, but am especially fond of them being paired back to the funky tweed blazers!
Sitting at the natural waist with a cropped wide leg this pant is the perfect alternative to PJs. We produced this pant in three happy prints that are sure to brighten any spring day. You can wear this pant back to the matching woven tops to create a fun jumpsuit look.
THE HIGH WAISTED STRIPED FLARE PANT // $99 ($69.30 at launch)
This style is drafted off of the fit of our popular high waisted pant from fall! This pant is a true high waist style with a flare leg and is meant to be tight through the hips and thigh. Pair it back to the matching navy and white blazer for an over-the-top graphic look!
This pink peplum topper has slightly cropped sleeves and hits at the mid thigh. This style is made from the same material and color as the cropped flare pant so you can create a head to toe pink modern suiting ensemble.
THE WHITE ORGANZA TOPPER // $149 ($104.30 at launch)
This style is a recreation of the popular heart jacquard coat from fall! This particular topper is done in a sheer organza and is meant to be worn over your favorite summer mini dress!
Created to pair back to the matching skirt, this yellow coat creates a fun, floral look for summer. You can of course also pair it back to white denim and an easy tank for a more casual resort vibe.
Wear to work, but made way more fun! These tweed blazers with pop bindings are professional, yet funky – perfect for your next zoom call! We are loving the pops of neon in the tweed and how magically they both pair back to the white or pink cropped kick flares. This style is meant to be fitted and has little to no stretch so I would recommend sizing up if you are between sizes!
This navy and white blazer is a fitted, double breasted style that I am wearing back to the matching pants, with white cropped kick flares, and even with a pair of boyfriend denim. It is a super versatile, statement blazer. Similar to the tweed styles, this blazer is intended to be fitted and has little to no stretch.
Polka dot printed twill, a cinched waist, and structured pockets…this style is sitting pretty in my top five pieces in the collection. It is editorial, yet wearable, and while it is great for spring/summer, I will certainly be wearing it well into fall! This style is a more fitted utility jacket with the arms fitting close to the body and the length hitting at the high hip. There is an adjustable pull cord at the waist for easy cinching.
This cropped trench is also in my top five favorites from this drop. Like the polka dot jacket it is done in a heavier printed twill. This jacket is meant to fit cropped in both the body and arms and is a swing style that sits away from the body. I have been wearing this cute cape non-stop, and with so many colors in this stripe combo, it goes with almost everything colorful in my closet!
THE SPRING SNEAKER // $99.95 ($69.97 at launch)
Looking for an alternative to a simple sneaker? Look no further. I love flatform footwear styles, and this season we created a smooth leather sneaker with a pointed toe and platform espadrille sole that goes with nearly everything in the collection!
THE STRAPPY KITTEN HEEL // $99.95 ($69.97 at launch)
Strappy, simple yet statement – these heels in pink and navy are the perfect lil summer shoe. I have been wearing mine with just about everything: skirt, dresses, denim you name it!
THE TUBE SANDAL HEEL // $99.95 ($69.97 at launch)
These rainbow and green ombre statement shoes can BE your whole look! Dress them up with a simple white summer dress or make an over-the-top moment by pairing them with head-to-toe rainbow stripes. The mid heel and easy pitch make these shoes comfortable enough to wear all day long.
THE JEWELED HANDHELD // $89 ($62.30 at launch)
Rattan and sparkles, who knew this combination worked so well?! This roll bag is a great unexpected summer bag to add to your collection. It is on the smaller side but is still roomy enough for all your essentials!
THE POM POM WICKER HANDHELD // $89 ($62.30 at launch)
This pretty pom-pom handle bag is so much fun. The style has structured round rattan shape and soft pom-poms that adorn the easy handle. This style matches so well back to the bright organza stripe that is in the collection.
THE STRIPED WICKER AND MESH TOTE // $79 ($55.30 at launch)
We made this bag to be married to all the rainbow stripes in the collection. It has a rattan, structured bottom, with a sheer rainbow stripe mesh top. It is easy to store, comfortable to carry, and holds just about everything you need!
THE CLEAR BEADED TOTE // $99 ($69.30 at launch)
Clearly practical! This clear beaded bag has an internal pink pouch, so while it is charming, it is also functional. I love this bag back to the pink floret dress and pink straw hat.
Top it off with a hat! For the first time we are offering straw hats! There is a great striped hat with shorter brim as well as a pink straw hat with wide brim and pink ribbon tie!
THE PINK FLORET HEADBAND // $35 ($24.50 at launch)
Make it matchy, matchy! Hot tip: the pink floret dress can be meticulously matched with the headband 0 it is wrapped in the exact same material.
THE WHITE WIDE BELT // $49 ($34.30 at launch)
We are brining back our favorite stretch belt in white! It is a classic color that you will find yourself wearing again and again. This belt is great for spring/summer but can also create a pop in your cold weather wardrobe when the time comes. This belt is wide, meant to be worn at the natural waist, and has an elastic stretch back that makes it so easy to style.
THE RATTAN BELT // $49 ($34.30 at launch)
This belt is my favorite in the collection. It is a rattan belt that styles so well with summer dresses and skirts. It is made completely of stretch, making it perfect to put over even your bulkiest pieces. I love how well it compliments tan sandals, basket bags, and raffia jewelry.
THE LUCITE BUCKLE BELT // $59 ($41.30 at launch)
This belt is the same construction as the wide belt we have run in the past (and above in white) but has been updated with a lucite buckle! This belt pairs particularly well with the organza maxi dresses as well as the pink floret dress!
THE SHEER ANKLE SOCKS // $9 ($6.30 at launch)
A sweet way to style sneakers or to make-it-mod back to mary janes, these sheer ankle socks are available in navy hearts and the white floral pattern (to match the organza pieces). These socks are so fun – the perfect accessory for spring!
