A Showstopper Coat

For the final installment of our styling how-to collab with bloggers The Middle Closet, we brought out the big guns – a stunning, oversize fur coat that is both incredibly warming and chic for these winter months, paired with Helmut Lang’s leather leggings, a pared-down striped tee for contrast, some kitschy jewelry from The Woods and Reliquiae for whimsy, and a minimalist tote from Ampersand as Apostrophe to top it off.  See what The Middle Closet ladies had to say about the look below!

Good morning, happy Friday!

We’ve rounded out the week with a final styling of these leather leggings, alongside Denver-based boutique, Goldyn, and owner Vanessa.

This last outfit is the most statement-worthy of all three this week. This Helmut Lang coat is a total showstopper, and exudes a 60’s chic vibe that we love. The formality of the jacket is downplayed by a simple striped tee, and some casual jewels. And yet again, the leather pants are the perfect streamlined piece that pulls the ensemble together.

We hope you enjoyed this series. Goldyn Boutique is located both online (here) and in the Highlands neighborhood of Denver at 2040 W 30th Ave (right next to Linger). Thank you to Vanessa, Courtney and Goldyn for allowing us to borrow your amazing clothing!

Another Goldyn Moment with The Middle Closet

Our how-to styling collab with The Middle Closet blog continues, today with another way to style our favorite Helmut Lang leather leggings - this black-on-black-on-black look works when we add different textures, creating depth and warmth.  Check out what the ladies at The Middle Closet had to say below.

The groundhog saw his shadow on Monday, so despite my readiness to ditch the cozy sweaters and embrace lighter clothing, it’s not happening just yet :) Not that I trust a rodent weatherman… but that’s beside the point. Let us, along with Goldyn Boutique, show you the perfect way to layer for a super chic look.

When you’re working with an all-black ensemble, the devil (or should I say angel?) is in the details. As promised, this look begins with leather leggings that are expressing their versatility yet again. The nubbed pullover adds some awesome texture, especially when paired with a contrasting textile like silk. The dress lends movement and femininity to the outfit, and the dress length balances out the crop of the sweater. A couple of edgy details and voila! Perfect outfit if you ask me.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Monday’s post featuring these same leather pants. And check back Friday for a third look! Thank you, as always, for reading! Have a wonderful day!

A Goldyn State of Mind with The Middle Closet Blog

Last weekend we teamed up with sisters Hailey and Paige from The Middle Closet to show how to style one of our favorite wardrobe staple pieces:  Leather leggings from Helmut Lang.  Seriously folks, they go with everything.  Not to mention that they make any outfit, even a plain tee, look that much more bad a$$.  Oftentimes, though, customers ask how to wear them, so we thought we’d illustrate just how amazing and versatile they are (and why we have a wait list for them season after season!)

Throughout this week we’ll be revealing one of our styled looks…. Scroll down to check out our first outfit with Lauren Nevada, Helmut Lang, Ampersand As Apostrophe, Esarsi, and The Woods, modeled here by Hailey, and what The Middle Closet had to say about the look.

From The Middle Closet Blog:

Good morning, happy Monday!

This is an exciting week for us. We’ve partnered with Goldyn, a Denver-based boutique, to style a closet staple in three different ways. Throughout the week, we’ll show you how owner, Vanessa, paired a pair of leather leggings to suit almost any occasion.

First up, the most casual formality of the three. This Lauren Nevada mixed-media top is a little edgy, and also a little feminine (because, what’s more feminine than tulle?). The sporty bra adds another layer of interest. Finally, stacked bracelets featuring raw cut diamonds from The Woods lend a luxurious, but down-to-earth vibe.

Check back on Wednesday for a look that’s totally different, yet equally fashionable!

All looks are available both in store and online at http://www.shopgoldyn.com!

Holiday Jewelry and Gift Market at Goldyn this Thursday

It’s that time of year again…. you start realizing that the holidays are right around the corner, and you’re going to need gifts.  But if you’re anything like me, you don’t want to give your favorite people the same old generic stuff you can get at the mall…you want every gift to be meaningful and special.  Well, luckily for you Goldyn will be offering incredibly special and unique jewelry and gifts for just such people at our Holiday Jewelry and Gift Market, hosted by one of our fav Colorado bloggers, Lawn Party.  We really spent some time hand-picking some of our favorite independent designers – both from Colorado as well as NYC and beyond – to participate, who will be bringing in special edition pieces along with their favorite classics for your gift shopping needs!  We hope you can make it!
