WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Getaway

What to Wear

The majority of Penn students are spending their summer weekdays interning, working or traveling and, of course, the routine can become tiring. While it will come as no surprise to see a determined Penn student speed-walking down a Manhattan street in her patent heels and pencil skirt, it will often be much harder to find that same intern anywhere near New York City during the weekends. You see, summer weekends were made for exploring: exploring your passions, yourself and the world.

This Fashionista was spotted ready to take on the world. Appearing both polished and ready to trot the world in her Anthropologie ensemble, this Fashionista donned the perfect outfit for a weekend getaway. The silk from her Estrella maxi dress kept her look refined and sophisticated, while the colored print echoed her adventurous, bohemian spirit. To keep the long maxi dress hiked up, this Fashionista wrapped Anthropologie’s black spandex and tanned leather “Raconteur belt” around her waist for a more put together look. Her coral, mixed rope wedges added a bright, summery pop of color and kept her look fresh and perfect for a summer weekend getaway. Simple silver cuffs and one black ring added a touch of elegance to her free-spirited look, and the minimal accessories ensured that the focus of her ensemble was her beautiful silk dress.

Whether your weekend getaway involves visiting DC to stay busy with your friends or heading to the Hamptons to relax, a maxi dress and an outfit like that of this Fashionista is always the perfect way to stay chic and get in touch with your adventurous spirit.

One Simple Change: Swap out the wedges for a pair of embroidered or beaded flats for a comfortable outfit to go shopping in. Wearing a dress will make it easy to quickly try on clothing, and you’ll be prepared to walk through the heat in a loose, comfortable dress.
