Do you ever find those outfits that make you feel like a million bucks? Those outfits you put on and immediately know you look good. Ya, that’s how I feel about this entire look from BALDWIN Denim soon to be known as BLDWN. They are currently going through rebrand to reposition themselves as an American ready-to-wear company for women and men. Which means we’re just going to jump the gun and start calling them BLDWN in this post!
I was recently introduced to BLDWN a couple of months ago when I was shopping around the Domain in Austin. There was a massive black and white coming soon sign on the wall which graced with the images of 2 beautifully chic models. Intrigued, I immediately got on my phone to research what this place was all about.
I quickly fell in love with their classic and sophisticated monochromatic pieces. For all of you color lovers, don’t you worry. You will find spurts of beautifully colored pieces throughout the collection. What I noticed is that every single piece of clothing is made to easily flow together with one another. There isn’t one single piece that wouldn’t easily piece together with something else. Just think of BLDWN as a capsule wardrobe created right before your eyes.
Can you imagine how excited I was when they reached out to me to help promote their new Austin location? Obviously, I said YES. I started perusing the BLDWN site and pieced together the most beautiful outfit I ever did see. Everything about this look is so chic! Its what I like to call, an Ashley outfit. Most of y’all know my photos by how much black I wear. 😂
I made no exception with the look I chose. Dark grey skinny jeans, a black sweater with the most beautiful black and white check coat. It’s one of those looks that I knew would look so chic for any occasion. That is what I love about BLDWN. Each piece is so classic that you can wear them casual or dressy. I chose to pair this look with a pair of suede OTK boots and my classic Chanel. It really reminds me of a look that I would wear out and about in NYC.
I actually kept all of my usual sizing in everything and was very pleased with how everything fit, overall. The coat is a size small and fit absolutely perfect. I always like to find coats that fit well with a lightweight top underneath or a chunky sweater. This hit the mark with both of those. For those of y’all wondering how tall I am for length reference, I am 5′ 8″.
I’ve honestly never found a coat I love as much as this one, if that says anything. I have been known to most as a Burberry coat snob. Those are literally the only coats I have invested in and worn for as long as I can remember. Step aside, Burberry! You’ve got some tough competition! You will definitely see me in this coat all winter long!
This black sweater is also a dream! It has a mock-neck and is a little on the boxier side for the perfect oversized fit. I absolutely love the wider, cropped sleeves too. Those details just give this sweater such a flattering fit. Made partially of baby wool, yak and cashmere this sweater is oh so cozy!
These jeans have to be some of my favorites too. If y’all watched any of my Instagram Stories lately y’all know that I have a love/hate relationship with jeans. I was a little skeptical when I received 2 pairs of this particular style of BLDWN denim but once I put them on I knew they were going to be some of my favorites.
I honestly can’t even pinpoint what it is about this particular style but they fit perfectly. There is just the right amount of stretch and they were beyond comfortable. The one thing that I loved about these is the fact that they didn’t do that weird pulling/whiskering across the front like most jeans do. The style is called the Karlie. This particular style does come in multiple colors and they run true to size!
