Sundays in D.C. consist of brunch at Le Pain Quotidien, a stroll along the Georgetown Waterfront and an endless amount of hours clocked in at Kramerbooks & Afterwords preparing for the week ahead. Regardless of whether you prefer sipping on mimosas into the late afternoon or diving into a timeless novel, one should never replace sweaters with sweats.
I spotted this Fashionista on a beautiful Sunday afternoon wearing an effortlessly chic ensemble. Over the years I have heard countless rules about how and when to wear white, but this Fashionista demonstrates that white can be worn year round and white pants can make a great replacement for blue jeans. Most would say that their version of a casual outfit would be jeans and T-Shirt, but it is not very often that one mentions a silk blouse. My closet happens to be filled with several simple and casual silk tops that can easily be a replacement to the basic T-shirt. Having an extensive collection of fun accessories will make your wardrobe unique and every outfit chic. This Fashionista paired her favorite J.Crew statement pieces (the Bubble Necklace and the Lula Ballet Flat) in order to contrast the textures in her outfit and to tie all of the colors of the outfit together.
When investing in a pair of white jeans, the fit is extremely important. The Madewell Skinny Skinny Jean is made of stretch denim and has a low-to-mid rise making it universally flattering. Pair it with the Tommy Shirt by Heidi Merrick and House of Harlow 1960’s Station Leather Necklace. The color blocked blouse is a great balance of bright colors and neutrals, and the piping around the neck and sleeves keeps the pattern defined. House of Harlow 1960 is a personal favorite for accessories; Nicole Richie has created an eclectic mix of retro and ethnic patterns that can be incorporated into most outfits. Topping off any outfit with a great watch is not only chic, but will help all Fashionistas get through a busy Sunday.
