It’s literally Lauren Rothman’s job to keep up with style trends. The fashion consultant, stylist, author and speaker is the woman behind many of the D.C. region’s best dressed politicians, corporate leaders and celebs. But when she’s not with clients, you can find the Style Bible author and McLean resident at some of her favorite NoVA hot spots. Here, she shares her secrets.

What’s your style philosophy?

Your smile is your number one accessory and the best way to own a room is to walk in confident.

Shop ’til you drop

I love to shop! Not only is it my job, it’s my favorite pastime. I love Roman in Tysons Corner. They have the most unique pieces. Burberry this season is amazing and has the most fab accessories for cooler weather.

These SEE sunglasses define my signature style—edgy yet classic! Metallics are hot this season and these Kendra Scott lacquers add the perfect splash of sparkle. I often layer them on top of my mani to make it last longer!

Favorite date night spot

My husband and I love Assaggi Osteria for date night and their sister restaurant next door, Assaggi Pizzería, is our goto for family night.

Just say spaaaa

Salamander Resort & Spa is my home away from home. Visiting their spa is such a stress release. I especially love to sip Champagne by the fireplace at the outdoor hot tub after a massage.

Favorite spot when family is in town

Greenhill Winery in Middleburg.

Hostess with the most
