We recently caught up with Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard about their brand (now available at Georgetown's Intermix boutique), DC women and the skinny on summer fashion.
How would you describe the quintessential professional DC woman, and how does your clothing help her navigate her days and weeks, fashion-wise?
The DC woman needs go-to pieces that can effortlessly take her from any type of meeting in the day to cocktails at night. Our collection is for women on the go, and offers a uniform that is cool, classic and chic.
What are your style tips for moms on the run this spring and summer, or really, any time of year?
Invest in a comfortable pair of shoes that you can wear every day—something that looks fabulous with a dress, jeans or pant. Beginning this summer, customers can shop our new shoe collection, which has a very utilitarian feel. We created shoes that fit into a mom’s lifestyle—pairs that don’t ever compromise style while delivering function.
What are your tips for transitioning from the office to an chic evening soiree around town?
Throwing on a pair of heels and chic jacket over your daytime look does wonders! If you can spare an hour, book an appointment at a blowout bar to get your hair and makeup touched up and you’ll feel confident as ever!
What are your favorite pieces for summer travel?
We love the gingham trend right now. Our gingham skirt and pants can be worn as an alternate to jeans, and are perfect for every occasion—the beach, the country club, even a cocktail party.
