Chriselle Lim has joined forces with contemporary clothing brand J.O.A on her first-ever design collaboration, which will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom. The inspiration behind this pretty new range? Lim's trip to Rome, where she "fell in love with the rustic romance and colors of the city," per the press release. And much like Italy's capital, the pieces in the collection (dubbed "Roman Holiday") are, in a word, magical.

The Roman Holiday range boasts the perfect mix of classic, modern, and multi-use staples—including dresses, jumpsuits, pants, tops, and blazers—all of which have been designed in a warm, rustic color palette (think cream, gold, yellow, and soft pink).

Items were currently eyeing include a trench dress that doubles as a coat when left unbuttoned, and a tiered-sleeve minidress that is the perfect springtime essential. But the best part about the collection, aside from the fact that it's inspired by the romantic city of Rome, is that it's very affordable—pieces range between $59 and $124. Read on to shop some of our favorites from Chriselle Lim's first-ever capsule collection.
