Stripes, Cutouts, AND Socks With Heels? Yes, It Can Work!

Who She Is: A mystery D.C. lady
Where We Spotted Her: Waiting for the bus in Penn Quarter
Why We Love Her: In list form, contrasting stripes, cutouts, a hat, a rope belt, and socks with heels might sound like a little too much. But in life, this gal pulls it off with ease. We like how she's balancing a daring mini dress with a chambray shirt for coverage (but not too much coverage), and accentuating her waist with a simple cincher. The best part, in our book, is how she takes the tricky editorial trend of pairing socks and heels, and puts her own wearable spin on it. A summery fedora perched just so caps off her look.
