Autumn embraces a shift from the minimalism of seasons past towards a period of ladylike hyper-elegance. Subtle print-mixing, embellished sweaters, layers of metallic and fringed feathers take ordinary outfits to another level. Insert classic silhouettes in pops of primary colors like yellow and blue for a polished look that is anything but basic. NoVA natives are known for their busy schedules and taking a vacation can be a serious luxury—so let’s treat it like one. With its unique décor and classic charm, Hotel Monaco in Old Town Alexandria was the perfect backdrop for our glamour girl’s getaway.
