The Leather Pant | Dressing Up with Darling

Linnea White

Faux, vegan, genuine - oh my! When three pairs of leather pants find their way into the shop within a week, you put on a pair that fits like a second skin and start styling. Or at least that's what I do!

Leather pants are tough, chic, and give any outfit a bit of edge. They're also intimidating, but so worth it. These Blank NYC vegan leather leggings are all sorts of sexy. Rather than ramping up the sex appeal, I styled this pair with a playful graphic T-shirt and a plaid button-up, giving it a casual edge. This look could easily be worn with a pair of sneakers for a weekend adventure, or dressed up with pumps (sans plaid shirt) for a night on the town.

Stay tuned for more leather pant outfit inspiration tomorrow!

Dressing Up with Darling: Beaded with a Purpose

Linnea White

Our darling intern, Emma, is nearly 6 feet tall and all-the-way gorgeous. We were excited to style her for this week's Dressing Up with Darling post, featuring a basic summer outfit with fun details and accessorized to the max.

These beaded accessories are brand new at Darling, and have such a beautiful story behind them. Handmade in Uganda, the beaded necklaces, bracelets, sandals, earrings, and bags support the adoption of two little boys by a local couple here in Charlottesville. One hundred percent of each item purchased from this collection supports the adoption. Stay tuned for an upcoming pop up shop event featuring even more from this amazing couple in early August!

I got my hot pants, my hot pants, I got my hot pants on. This week boasts a little neighborly inspiration. When we brought in these Isabel Marant jeans, our neighbors at The Southern Cafe and Music Hall inspired us to explore our rocker edge. Check out this rocker chic style, and these amazing printed jeans.

Dressing Up with Darling: Giving Back is the New Black

Linnea White

ssekobagcloseup_mt.jpg

Sure, this post may look like a LBD post. But look closer. This week, we're featuring an awesome new product in the store from Sseko Designs - their beautiful, handmade leather bucket bag. Handcrafted in Ethiopia, this is not only a classic bag, but buying it also directly supports women in Ethiopia.

To showcase the bag, I styled it with a simple black knit dress, a pair of killer booties, a pair of our new sunnies, and simple, eye-catching jewelry. But a leather tote can be worn with many styles and in many ways (which you'll see tomorrow on the blog in our tips and tricks post). Buy this gem of a bag at the shop!

Dressing Up with Darling: Rainy Day Play

Linnea White

What makes us happy when skies are grey? An adorable outfit! Especially one as color coordinated and chic as this one. Who says you can't dress cute on a rainy day? Certainly not us! Practical wedges for dainty frolics and pops of color make any grey day bright.

We love this Maeve dress from Anthropologie, especially that little detail of red buttons down the back. Paired with these fun wedges, a bright bag, a stunning necklace by local artisans Birds of Paradise, and, of course, a red lip, this outfit is meant to take on a gloomy day. Just try to not smile when wearing such a playful outfit! No sunshine in the sky? Wear it!
