One of the reasons we love designer collaborations is because they make items we are already obsessed with even better. Launched today, Madewell and famed ’90s designer Daryl K’s collab can only be described as a perfect marriage. The line boasts a polished denim dress we would expect from Madewell, made even sexier with Daryl K’s signature body-hugging designs. For accessories, we’re calling out the ’70s striped shoulder bag, as it’s bound to be a hit with anyone who has a penchant for retro silhouettes. Here, styling tips for making our favorite pieces work now in cold weather and later when summer hits.
Outfit Ideas For Now And Later
Denim Dress For Winter
Styling Tip: For added warmth, pair a thin ribbed turtleneck under this denim dress (and wear tights if it's freezing!). Finish the outfit with a cozy shearling coat and '70s-inspired fringe ankle booties.
Denim Dress For Spring
Styling Tip: The best thing about denim is that it literally pairs with everything. When choosing accessories, opt for vibrant colors that will really pop against the blue jean material.
Shoulder Bag For Winter
Styling Tip: If you're dying to show off this crisp linen and leather bag now, we totally understand, and yes, it's possible! Layer a menswear coat over a bohemian-printed dress and you're good to go.
Shoulder Bag For Spring
Styling Tip: Elevate your faded vintage jeans with this polished shoulder bag, a crocheted hippie top and glamorous wedges.
