The Edgy Chic

Edgy and Chic, love this look!Edgy & Chic | The Darling Detail

There are some cities in this world where you constantly play in a whimsical world of “dress up” when getting ready for the day.

I’m talking stilettos on, sleek and chic pants buttoned, blazer styled, hair curled, face perfectly polished. And yes, I’ve come to terms with the fact that Austin, TX isn’t so much one of those cities. Most of my “dressing up” consists of the right pair of high-waisted denim and a shirt that I could basically sleep in. But regardless of this laid-back Austin style (or whatever city you’re in), I’ve decided it’s up to us to make a fashion statement. In other words, dressing it up can also mean dressing down. This comfortable and oh-so-cozy outfit consists of my favorite Joe’s high-waisted grey denims skinnies, and the softest Splendid jersey tee (I could live in it!). But the best part is having the ability to dress it up—add in my favorite d’Orsay pumps, Kelly Wynne Duffle bag, douse myself in an excessive amount of Kendra Scott Jewels (cuff, ring, earrings), and top it off with just the right Kate Spade sunnies. But wait, there’s more. When you’re feeling extra-extra casual (this happens maybe too often for me), throw on a pair of flip flops, booties, and maybe a flowy sweater, et voila… you’ve both dressed up–and dressed it down! Happy, happy Monday dahlin’s.

  1. As a former Austin resident, I can totally get what you’re saying. But this look is so perfect and still chic for Austin or a hustling and bustling city. Love that denim!

  2. I feel you on Austin fashion. I can seriously leave the house with no makeup, yoga pants, and a tank and feel completely normal. When I visit NYC that vibe doesn’t fit in as well, ha. I love your look here. It’s perfect for a night out in Austin!
