Certain sartorial hallmarks go hand-in-hand with a delicious French meal — a perfect red pout, a sleek silhouette, and some unforgettable footwear. So, naturally, we incorporated all of those elements into one perfect ensemble for dinner at Le Diplomate, the newest French outpost to open in Logan Circle. Whether you're there to savor a cheese plate, polish off a steak, or stick to good old-fashioned carbs, this effortlessly chic outfit is the perfect accompaniment.
For your rendezvous, make sure you stand out in a statement skirt, such as this graphic-print pencil version. Tough elements — like a moto jacket and towering, buckled sandals — keep the conservative skirt silhouette from looking too prim, while a crimson lip and electric-yellow clutch add a necessary pop.
