WEEKEND FORECAST: Versatile Stripes

Summer is finally here in the district! As humidity and abnormally high temperatures set in, fellow Fashionistas like this one look for ways to stay cool and fashionable in the heat. I spotted this fellow Fashionista strolling through the shops on M street in Georgetown. However, this look would also be perfect for a weekend evening dinner or a sunday family brunch.

This season the nautical blue and white stripes have been a popular go-to frequently worn as a casual top paired with white or denim shorts. This Fashionista is shaking things up with a bandage-striped skirt on the bottom paired with a tucked-in off-white button down on top. Adding to the look is a pair of round oversized sunglasses such as the large cat's eye sunglasses from Ray-Ban. Paired with either flats or wedges this look is easy to dress up or down depending on the occasion. Need to be ready for both? Try a neutral toned scarf to dress down the outfit for daily outings and bring a cropped navy blazer to dress up for an evening occasion.

Want to get this look? Pair a loose button-down blouse (many different styles are available at Topshop) with a BCBG striped power skirt and a pair of Dolce Vita neutral toned wedges. Wearing a tan tote bag during the day and a longer shoulder-chain for the evening. This Topshop convertible bag is as versatile as this outfit allowing a Fashionista to be ready for any event the day may bring.
