Irish-born fashion designer Daryl Kerrigan has been defining New York City's downtown style since the 1990s through Daryl K, her chic collection of women’s clothing and ankle boots. Kerrigan’s no-nonsense, urban-girl devotees love to rock Daryl K’s tough-yet-luxe leather pants, jeans, washed-out shirts and other separates.

Meet the new romantic! A marriage of traditionally feminine and tough details give this crop of dresses, separates and accessories a distinctly modern appeal.

This array features some of our favorite picks from a quintet of top designers, with a tendency toward cropped jackets, mini-dresses, and slouchy knit tops. You’ll also find waxed leggings, an amazing leather bomber jacket, and loads of black—perfect for complementing the super-bright trends for spring.
