Our very own Demetria L. Lucas, Relationships Editor of ESSENCE, hosted a group of chic, influential ladies at a fab rooftop soiree in New York City to celebrate her new book, “A Belle in Brooklyn.” Of course we were there, and what we saw did not disappoint!

We loved the effortless style we spotted — from chic, wide-leg pants, to beautiful maxi dresses to bold, bright skirts — their fashion was almost as inspiring as their drive, ambition and careers.

See what they wore…
