We bring you “Style and the City” – a weekly trend review captured in the most style struck locations in the Nation’s Capitol. We will illustrate how to transition from Simplistic + Street to After 5 Classic + Chic!
First stop: Yana B takes The NAVY YARD | The Yards Park is DC’s newest waterfront destination. Whether you are coming for a special event or just to relax, the Yards Park has something for everyone! Built as a series of outdoor “rooms,” the Yards Park features unique spaces including the 11″ deep Canal for children to play in, the peaceful River Street Gardens with wooden chaise lounge chairs and the raised overlook with incredible river views. Outdoor bars, concerts on Friday’s, and the relaxed spirit of the locals, the styles we bring you are suitable for all aspects of this modernistic area.
Look 1: “Girl Next Door”
The best outfits are built from basics. A white tee and denim are the most classic basics that you and everyone else will find in their closets. Don’t underestimate the power of basics! Here we bring you a classic, streamlined look with a white tee and a midi denim pencil skirt with flats. This is a standard look with no frills, good for a walk in the park. It’s the plain look of a “girl next door.”
Look 2: The Chill MVP
Adding on to the basic look is always fun. It’s like starting from a blank canvas and you draw your portrait from there. Here we add some black heels, a basic colored clutch, a necklace, vintage belt, arm candy, and a bright lip. Instantly we get an elevated style, good for a night out on the town or drinks with the girls.
Look 3: Are You Gonna Go My (Stylish) Way
Nothing says fun like bright colors. Take away the black and add orange, take away the blue and add yellow. Then throw in some subtle stripes to seal the deal. And instantly you have an elevated style to make you the life of the party!
