Dress for the scene
As the weather warms up, your social calendar is probably filling up as fast as spring merchandise on the shelf of your
favorite store. But the big question is: what's the best look for all of those engagements? Alas, so many outfits… so little
time. Here are a few suggestions to help you navigate through your closet… and social calendar.

RSVP: The Washington
National Opera Gala
It's opening night. Do you look
the part? Ride out the drama with
a strategically chosen gown. Favorites this
season are by Monique Lhuillier, Lela
Rose and as always, Carolina Herrera.
RSVP: White House
Don't be afraid of wearing color,
but do watch your décolleté when
attending a reception at the White
House. A dressy suit accessorized with a
Hermes scarf and a pair of Manolo's, the
perfect Chanel suit and bag, or a dress by
Oscar de la Renta will have you looking
RSVP: Hearing on the Hil
Pinstripes and pearls! Play it smart and sophisticated in a tailored suit by Theory, Ann Taylor or J. Crew. Keep your bag and shoes professional with pearls polishing this look to perfection! The look sounds cliché… but in this situation, it may be better to blend than show your true colors.
RSVP: Twilight Polo
Let your shoes dictate this outfit. Don't play victim to a sinking heel on the field…pair an Espadrille wedge or Jack Roger sandal with a fun and easy dress. Skip the white pants-as much as we love to wear them all summer, a muddy field spells spots.ahead with it's modern design.
RSVP: Drinks at the Ritz
On a date or having drinks with the girls? Pair spring's hottest jeans
with a top from Milly, Nanette Lepore, or Marc by Marc Jacobs. Must
have shoes for the season are platforms by Christian Louboutin and floral
printed peep toe pumps by Bettye Muller.
