Politiquette Style Solution: One way I stretch my wardrobe out is by layering summer pieces so that they work in the winter. Wearing a black turtleneck under my dress allows for an entirely different look. You can see the difference from the summer look here.

Politiquette Style: Inspired by street style, I have recently integrated a denim jacket into my winter wardrobe. To stay seasonally appropriate, I purchased a jacket with shearling/sherpa details. There are many “winter” denim jackets available right now with details like flannel, velvet, leather etc. I have worn this jacket for fancy dinners and to walk the dog. I think its a very versatile piece that can definitely go to the office to give some edge to a more polished look.

Politiquette Tip: Shopping at consignment stores is a great way to expand your wardrobe on a budget. It is also a way to find unique pieces that you won’t find anywhere else. I found the featured Judith Leiber bag at 2nd Time Around in Georgetown and I absolutely love it.

Politiquette Tip: Happy Hour is a great time to try out a new restaurant. You can check out the vibe, often get specials and you don’t have to fully commit to a meal.
Of course, a meal at The Bird is even more amazing as happy hour!
