WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

The heart of summer is rapidly approaching and you’ve hardly gotten a jumpstart on your bucket-list of things to do and places to see. But we all know that’s the least of your problems. What really keeps you up at night is planning how to keep cool and look chic during next Saturday’s trip to Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg. Or perhaps you’re pondering how to accomplish looking like a work of art at Sunday’s visit to MoMA. Whatever your plans may be, you want to enjoy your weekend rendezvous looking as hot as the summer sun.

This Fashionista’s color-blocking ensemble is flexible enough to fit any venue you plan to attend this weekend. Her scarlet red wrap dress is cut to flatter any shape and conveys an alluring spin on sophistication. It is loose and easy to move in, so she never has to worry about feeling hot and stifled during a city stroll or an outdoor lunch. Not to mention that reds of all shades are trending in the summer. And what other seasonally appropriate color could complement red than a bright yellow? I absolutely love this Fashionista’s accessory choice. The classic handbag is bold enough to draw admiring eyes from far across a room (or field) but also subtle enough in design and structure. Color-blocking can be risky; I usually stay away from loud patterns because the meshing of colors will ultimately speak for themselves.

To top off her gorgeous look, this Fashionista picked a pair of white framed sunglasses, which not only adds to her mixed color scheme, but also communicates that she’s ready for a fun and eventful weekend under the sun.

One Simple Change: Did you meet someone at the Smorgasburg and now have date night plans for the following evening? Simply swap the sunglasses for a patterned silk scarf to tie around your neck and add a pair of opened-toed heels in a bright solid color.
