Street Chic Blazers

- Fashion

Take it from a Washingtonian, you can take your blazer from The Hill to the street with relative ease.  They’ve gone beyond business professional and make a perfect pairing for Fall street style.  Don’t get me wrong, you of course can still wear it with slacks and go into the office.  But when 5 o’clock rolls around trade your stress for distressed {jeans} and head to the local watering hole.   Each of the blazers from this post I got…

Most of us were dreaming of an endless summer, but darlings, those days are coming to an end.  This swim season was all about off the shoulder bikinis and high-legged one pieces and now that the season is ending you’re ready to trade in your suits for scarves.  But you don’t have to! We took this one swimsuit and styled it in two different ways.  This is the Good Times suit from CHRLDR.  It’s cut high in the front and low…

Mule for the Summer

- Fashion

Current obsession: Mules I mean, am I right??  This backless style shoe is trending for the summer and I’m loving it.  They can be dressed up or down and can either be flat or have a sky-high heel.  How easy to just slip on a pair of stylish shoes and go.   I’m not a big fan of Forever 21 shoes.  Actually, I think they suck.  But I found these pointed toe leather mules and thought, ok, they don’t need…

3 Reasons to Ditch the Fedora

- Fashion

Hats are such a great accessory for anytime of the year but especially summer.  They keep the sun off of your face and with this season’s wider brims, off of your shoulders too.  They hide humid-induced frizz and can really top off an outfit, pun 100% intended.   But ladies, the short-brimmed fedora… It’s still okay for men but for us, ditch it.  It was cute in 2014 but since then it has been replaced with SO many better choices for…

Oops! … I Patched it Again

- Fashion

Before I start this post, let me add two disclaimers: 1. I hope you read that in a Britney Spears voice. 2. If you didn’t, patches are too young for you bro… The countdown had begun on our blog launch and Nicole and I were trying to come up with an ideal and trendy way to show off our name TheDistrictDarlings.  We were drawn to the 90s trend and were all about oversized patched denim jackets.  Creating our own would be the perfect…
